Hello hello minion, why are you calling me?
I don't have time to talk about cGMP.
These are not my problems and I'm kinda busy. I'm kinda busy
I'm already on the phone with the WSJ.
Soon some will call me The Constant Garnier.
Stop calling, stop calling, Don’t wanna hear more from ya. Havin a dream 'bout Avandia.
Clinical and R&D and markets I know best
Now just please stop calling me, please don't be a pest.
Shareholders are on my mind, don’t wanna lose my shirt
You can call all you want, but I’ll never pick up, you’ll never reach my telephone
Gemba, schmemba, say what you want, you’ll never reach my telephone
Want servant leadership? Go work in Japan. I’ll never get that telephone
I’m happy here, miles away from the plant floor.
