I don't think I've posted this before... apologies if I have... but I don't think I did...

"I Can Finally Get Hired" (to the tune of “Higher” by Creed)

When reading I'm dreaming ‘bout another world
A world where I get paid
At sunrise I want to be at interviews
And talk about the law and all about myself
'Cause there's a hunger, a longing for the good life
Fulfilling all the dreams I’ve had since was four

I’ll make partner
Then I’ll find me a life
I will make partner
Then I’ll buy me a wife

I can finally get hired
So my law career can start
I can finally get hired
Because I am really smart

It’s easy when firms are falling over
To try and talk to second-years but I am not quite there
Cause first year, they say that it’s a challenge
But I am gonna be the first one, who’s hired for the year
First step towards the White House
And first step towards my future monarchy

I’ll make partner
After my third heart attack
I will make partner
And buy my wife a new rack

I can finally get hired
At a firm where rates are high
I can finally get hired
Work like mad until I die

I’ll make partner, partner
I will make partner
I will partner some day

In suits I feel like I’m alive for the very first time
With dictionaries, photocopies, Westlaw searches, lunches with the boss
All that I’m learning in legal writing will soon pay off

I can finally get hired
Doors are opening, let me through
I can finally get hired
Legal research is what I’m meant to do
I can finally get hired
All my loans be reimbursed
I can finally get hired
Just after midnight, it’s December first…
