You start work on Monday, putting in a hard day
Forget your lunch, you're on the run
You've got time for coffee
Cause your schedule's awfully
Crazy and you've just begun
Deadline, got to make that deadline, deadline

Back to work on Tuesday, can't afford to lose
A minute of your precious time
Deadline, got to make that deadline, deadline

It's already Wednesday, you can't even spend
A moment with your tired life
You got time for business
But you look suspicious
To your kids and your own wife
Deadline, got to make that deadline, deadline

Can't believe it's Thursday
Got to be your worst day
You've got too much on your mind
That deadline, will you make your deadline, deadline

I see you pay your dues, you say you hate to lose
Your job and yet you choose to go under
The boss is crackin down, the walls are spinnin round
Get on your feet before he starts to wonder

Friday you're depleted, finally completed
All the work you were assigned
Deadline, so you made your deadline
