THE 2ND SHIFT SHIMMY


THE 2ND SHIFT SHIMMY

Our relief has yet to arrive

We’re sleepy and barely alive,

The 2nd shift blues

Is really old news

As long as the third shift arrives.

Each weeknight is almost a gimme

To dance out the 2nd shift shimmy,

If a blackout occurs

The boss prefers

We call upon Richard or Jimmy.

From rush hour to late at night

We monitor this plant in spite

Of balking cam’ras

That are cranky because

They need to be maintained just right.

The 2nd shift shimmy’s ‘bout over,

I see the headlights of his ‘Rover…

No coffee for me,

I’ll be up past three

Or until there’s sunlight on the clover!
