Dan’s retirement day, not mine
Good for him
Got my 30 years in
I can leave on a whim
All the bills will get paid
No I don’t have to be afraid of getting
Laterally demoted (hell that already happened)
Outsourced promoted (caught me when I was nappin)

Yeah I could stay
Show up put in time for pay
Every two weeks
While I’m mentally away
Driving my electric car
Powered by our rooftop solar panels
Dreaming of a 40 kwh battery

Laura’s retirement day, not mine
Good for her
Got my 30 years in

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.


yes all those terms we have got to know over the last few years! should all be in the dictionary under GREED. The chords sound cool

Great chords Andy - I liked the title as my husband's name is Dan. Reeled me right in. I like your earthy style here - another's retirement day, not yours is a great concept! It has that tongue in cheekness about it!

Neat chords, like the vocals also works well with the lyrics. Guitar sounds really neat here! I like the bitterness of "good for him".

really nice guitar part. and the lyric tells it all. the company i worked for went out of business after 150 years when i was 58, and it was a long four years before i could get social securiy.

Great spoken word delivery - I wasn't expecting that.
Nice guitar work here for sure.
Like @Kurtis Kanttila, I hear a bit of bitterness in this song.
Well done!
