Now everybody knows that engineers are lazy slobs
They dress in dirty T-shirts and complain about their jobs
But Management has found a way to make them toe the mark:
You feed them bits of bullshit, and you keep them in the dark!

    Mushrooms, Mushrooms, I heard the boss remark
    You feed them bits of bullshit til they can't take any more
    When they stick their heads up cut them off and 
      ship them out the door

The engineer he heard the news and muttered, "It's a crime

'Cause noone ever listens to a single word we say!
Because we're...

    refrain
We all are...

    repeat refrain
