Hard Work Can Get You Paid Yo


Now… here’s a little story I’ve got to tell
About three bad brothers you know so well
It started way back in reality
With a PA, an AE, and me – BG!
Been postin little shows from A to Z
Just me, and my PA, and a tired AE
Riding cross the land, kicking up sand
Exec Producers on my tail cause I’m in demand
Three lonely Posties we be
All by ourselves without nobody
The sun is beating down but we can’t tell that
Producer’s gettin’ hot, the storyline is flat
Lookin’ for a girl, instead I have two guys
Any cuties into post, to LA you should fly
I be post production bitching and it’s well rehearsed
Four days in an edit bay and dying of thirst
The mouse was in my hand, producer on my tip
His voice was hoarse, his throat was dry he asked me for a clip
He said, “Can I get some?”
I thought that we were done
Had a chance to run
He pulled out a shotgun
He was quick with the mic, I thought I’d be dead
He put the mic to my head and then he made me said,
“Now my name is X & Y. I’ve got a VO to fill
I”m reading temp to fill up time and keep my job still”
Now what do we have here, a post guy and his gear
I know the lesson, run the session, try hard not to sneer
Then I step out of the edit with a cut done and a grin
You think this story’s over but it’s ready to begin
Exec got the cut, but I got the crew
He got two choices of what he can do
It’s not a tough decision as you can see
“I can blow away your media or get this on TV”
He said, “I’ll ride with you if you can get me to the air date
The network’s after me again so I don’t even dare wait
Hit the budget with this, I hit the budget with that
I hit the budget with a whiffleball bat”
So… he’s on the run with his budget done
And right about now it’s time to have some fun
He’s really gonna owe me, that is the game
I’m gettin paid vacation and a bottle of champagne.
We worked for six days but we hit the spot
The episode was bumping and the graphics package hot
Now this dude is staring like he knows who we are
A president or CEO depending on his car
Exec said, “Yo, you know this kid?”
He said, “I didn’t know but now I did”
Then dude said, “Get ready, cause this ain’t funny
You’re a f^&*ing genius and about to get money.”
Pulled out the mobile, aimed it at the sky
He yelled, “No Service?!”, let the middle finger fly
Executive assistants start to hit the floor
He fired two kids that ran for the door
“I’m VIP and I get respect
A working phone and servitude is what I expect”
My PA was with it and he’s my ace
Got bars upon his iphone so he put it to his face
VIP’s call out and his anger stopped
His whole team sucked, so they got dropped
AE got more money, and my career gold
I got two seasons and a third I’m told.
