The Lanark County Engineer's Song:

Way Conservatives Work with Government Workers

The Lanark County Engineer's Song
(Sung to the Tune of the Beverly Hillbillies)
Come and listen to a story bout a man named Jed,
A poor College Kid barely kept his family fed,
But then one day he was talking to a government recruiter,
He said "They'll pay ya big bucks if ya work on the governments computer",
Unix that is ... hard drives ... workstations;

Well the first thing ya know ol' Jed's an Engineer,
The kinfolk said "Jed move away from here",
They said "Ottawa is the place ya oughta be",
So he bought some Tim Horton donuts and moved to Calabogie,
Intel that is ... dry heat ... no amusement parks;

On his first day at work they stuck him in a cube,
Fed him more Tim Hortons donuts and sat him at a tube,
The Conservatives said "Your project's late but we know just what to do,
Instead of 40 hours, we'll work you fifty-two!"
OT that is ... Unpaid ... Mandatory

The weeks rolled by and things were looking bad,
Some schedules slipped and some managers were mad,
They called another meeting and decided on a fix,
The answer was simple, "We'll work him sixty-six"
Tired that is ... Stressed out ... No social life

Months turned into years and his hair was turning gray,
Jed worked hard while his life slipped away,
Waiting to retire when he turned sixty-four,
Instead the Conservatives call and they escorted him out the door,
Laid-off that is ... Debriefed ... Unemployed ...
