This little piggy never came through
I come in for an interview,
Everything is pleasing,
Without explanation you leave thetable.
And start to make a pizza?
I'm leaving you right now..
As I get in my car,
I see you run out to get me,
To late buddy, you went to far.

This little piggy wants hard work fromyou
I drive downtown for an open interview,
Few hundred wait,
Hostess attention is flaky,
The order of resumes is shaky
It's no mystery the turnout would bebig,
The apology you give is a fib,
People been here two hours,
Those that just arrive,
Get their opportunities faster,
I'm already in negative dollars,
30 min before interview time,
It's announced group interviews willbegin,
There's no way I'm coming again,
The manager ignores me as I ask aquestion,
This disrespect is getting very oldfashion
Not worth it, I'm leaving, Before Ibeat someone I need a mellow distraction,

This little piggy isn't looking to keepme long,
I want this job for good,
But all workers I talk to
Say if offered a permanent position totake
They would
Some been here 8 years,
To this day,
Their Temp agency provides them pay
So much for business keeping employeesin house,
No wonder so many employees want tobounce,

This little piggy doesn't care if Itrust,
You tell me you want to hire me in theinterview,
I get no call for a week,
You leave me a message,
Details I'm given are pretty weak,
There's some employment agency I haveto call,
Why didn't you tell me this before,
Start dates already been stalled,
I take the initiative to call them andget tested,
High hopes this would be different werevested,
Everything is clear I'm supposed tostart soon,
Get a message a week later I need acert?
I get the cert,
I start the job,
They've got everyone here working 8hours a week,
I should be the manager they seek,
Im quickly growing tired
Friday comes along and I'm fired.
I ask “whats the reason you say?”
“You've requested too many hours eachday!”

So unemployment, long story short,
This collector is here to stay
