Written about working at Burger King. Paranoid about getting burned on the fryer. It's creepy.

lyrics

He stumbles in, hat on his head
wears his badge, shirt tucked in
hits the clock types in his number
sighs as his shift begins

manager creeps up behind him
“Get those hands under some water
once you’ve gotten both gloves on
could you be a pal and clean the fryer?”

Chorus:
Was it worth 7.50 an hour
to put collection in it’s place
was it worth 7.50 an hour
to rid yourself of the taste

He walks over to the metal beast
pits of molten oil writhing
kneels before the tanks of grease
pulls the switch and sends it flowing

stepping back he grabs the hose
rinsing out the starch and grime
scrubbing walls inside the steam
he wears thick gloves grow hot with time

Chorus

He fumbles, hose slipping from his hand
“god help” but none took demand
shrieking he slipped and he fell
covered from ear to arm in hell

Chorus
Was it worth giving up half your face
