Song Description

Parody of corporate presentations full of buzzwords

Story Behind the Song

I work in a large corporation and many people take themselves too seriously. I figure, if you can't laugh at yourself, you must really be uptight.

Lyrics

I've Used Every Buzzword
Larry Carr (c) 2008
Parody of I've Been Everywhere
Geoff Mack (c) 1957

I was walking to a meeting
To discuss departmental plans
When a yuppie in a power tie
Said would you help me understand
What it's gonna take to be
Successful in this job
There's so much competition,
Everything is dog eat dog
I said show 'em a Pareto chart
with buzzwords on each side
You'll shoot up like a rocket,
better hang on for the ride
(chorus)
I've used every buzzword
I've used every buzzword
Mesmerized the nerd herd
Used 'em every third word
Corporate speak absurd words
I've used every word

I've used:
Downsize, productize,
Innovate, make a mark
Analyze, enterprise,
Keep it in the ballpark
Herding cats, rubber stamp,
Do another benchmark
Lean and mean, earnings flat,
Gotta learn to multi-task
Business case, bleeding edge,
Wanna know the bottom line
Globalize, synergize
At least a hundred-fifty times

(repeat chorus)

I've used:
Brainstorm, blame storm,
Mindset, blue sky
Analysis paralysis,
Risk low, yield high
Strategic fit, facilitate,
Peel the onion, optimize
Client focused, best of breed,
Talking points, right size
Power shift, ownership,
Knowledge base, future-proof
Get yourself inside the loop,
Pick the lowest hanging fruit

(repeat chorus)

I've used:
Big picture, game plan,
Key player, win-win
Action item, fast track,
Value added, buy-in
Mission statement, mindset,
Create a living document
Push the envelope a bit,
Safety, Health, Environment,
Do a gap assessment plan,
Here's an opportunity
Take responsibility,
Nailing Jell-O to a tree

(repeat chorus)

I've used:
Back end, buy-in,
Been there, done that
Ramp up, streamline,
Drill down, skill set
Turn-key, touch base,
Vision statement, validate
World class, excellence,
Paradigm, communicate
Focused key initiatives,
Off-shoring scenario
Using everything I know,
For the dog and pony show

(repeat chorus)
I've used every buzzword
