In the land of Nothing Happens
On the Nothing Happens shore,
Lies the town of Nothing Happens -
Just a town
               Nothing more.

In the town of Nothing Happens
On Total Boredom Street,
Lies the job where nothing happens -
Just a job
               Nothing neat.

At the job where nothing happens
On a nothing's happening date,
Lies the desk where nothing happens -
Just a desk
               Nothing great.

At the desk where nothing happens
On a nothing happens seat,
Sits the girl who just does nothing -
Just a girl
               Nothing sweet.

The girl that just does nothing,
Just sits there in her grave -
And dies of total boredom
          From the nothing work she gave.
