Everybody Wants a Google Shirt

Shopping at job fairs
Push my resume
[But] jobs aren't what I seek
I will be your
walking student advertisement
Can't live on my research stipend
Everybody wants a Google shirt

HP, Amazon
Pixar, Cray, and Ford
I just can't decide
Help me score the most
free pens and free umbrellas
or a coffee mug from Bell Labs
Everybody wants a Google..

There's a room where it's Halloween, you
trick or treat for the branded, useless schlock.
When you do, I'll be right behind you.
Your CV's only so-so,
[But] it's worth a flashing yo-yo.
Everybody wants a Google shirt

[Un]til I find a steady funder
I'll make do with cheap-ass plunder
Everybody wants a Google..

Wait! You will never never never need it
It's free; I couldn't leave it
Everybody wants a Google shirt

Shameless corp'rate carrion crows
Turn your backs and show your logos
Everybody wants a Google shirt
