As a friend of mine said when I introduced this, "what did Alex Campbell ever do wrong ?" But here goes anyway......


1.        Come and lad and bring your Nokia,
Raybans, Rolex, filofax
Touch base, network 24/7
or you won't come up to scratch
Keep your eyes on the senior yuppies,
they're the ones who know their stuff
One day you'll be upwardly mobile,
just brown-nose and earn enough

2.        Come on lad get up to speed
to join the corporate super-race
Power- dressing, press the fleshing
will impact upon success
Just a clone in your monoculture,
surf the Net on your fridge door
Value all that's hip and shallow
SMS, consume, conform

3.        Memorize the mission statement and
regurgitate the same
Buy into a child-free precinct,
play the gentrifying game
Keep your eyes on Dow Jones and Nikkei,
let's play Futsi, watch our stock
Get yourself an MBA
so you can talk just like a jerk

4.                Repeat verse 1
