  • Ouch. It sounds painful.

    Okay, it IS painful.

  • I'm an editor and I'm okay

    I sleep all night and I work all day

    (chorus)

    She's an editor and she's okay

    She sleeps all night and she works all day

    I cut down text, I eat my lunch,

    I go to the lavatryyyyyy

    Tuesdays I go to Photo Services

    And check with thevisualresourceslibrarianaboutarranging photographyyyy...

    I check syntax, I use big words

    I like to wear short skirts

    Weekends I get wasted

    And dance on table-tops.
