Have You Ever Been Mistreated?

Have you ever been mistreated? You know what I'm talkin’ about.
Have you ever been mistreated? You know just what I'm talkin’ ‘bout.
I worked five long years in software, they had the nerve to shove me out.

I had a job in a bug house, grepin’ code like a slave.
Five long years, come Fridays, I would drink away my pain.
Have you ever been mistreated? You know what I'm talking about.
I worked five long years for that man, he had the nerve to turn me out.
 
I got a job in a retail, stockin’ shelves like a slave.
Five long years, every Friday, soak my feet, soak my head, for the pain.
Have you ever been mistreated? You know just what I'm talking about.
I worked five long years for Walmart, they had the nerve to turn me out.

Finally learned my lesson, should’a long time ago.
The next rock that I carry, I’ll put it down, friggn’ watch it roll.
Have you ever been mistreated? You know what I'm talking about.
Worked too many hard years for The Man, an’ he had the nerve,
He had the nerve to put me out.
