Far away and long ago
they would have a super run the show,
but when it didn’t fit into their financial plan,
that’s when they turned to Technician Dan.
Dan is not a manager, but he stands tall.
The bigwigs always look at him to take the fall.
When they need to pass the buck into a willing hand,
they pass it on down to Technician Dan.
They tell him he’s a leader, but he’s got no clout.
They say there’s other ways that he should work it out.
When he thinks he’s solved it and he’s got a plan,
the big boys let him know he’s still Technician Dan.
He’s got a great big planner and takes lots of notes,
but stays away from using all the big boys’ quotes,
‘cause if he likes his office and a place to stand,
he better keep in mind he’s just Technician Dan.
