“My Cubicle”
Lyrics by: Morning Sidekick
Performed by: Jym Britton
Parody on “You’re Beautiful” by James Blunt

My job is stupid my day’s a bore,
Inside this office from eight to four
Nothin’ ever happens my life is pretty bland,
Pretending that I’m working, pray I don’t get canned.

My Cubicle, My cubicle
It’s One of Sixty two
It’s my small space in a crowded place
Just a six-by-six foot booth
And I hate it that’s the truth

Well, I give a sigh as the boss walks by,
no one ever talks to me or looks me in the eye.
And I really should work but instead I just sit here and surf the Internet.

In My Cubicle, My cubicle
It doesn’t have a view.
It’s my small space in a crowded place
I sit in solitude.
And sometimes I sit here nude.

  1. Of course I sent this to ALL that I know. From my office to all of theirs. HYSTERICAL!!!!

  2. OHMYGAWD !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. I have to admit that I find the original song just a little annoying… especially the “My life is brilliant” thing at the beginning. If his life was so “brilliant” he’d get the girl — right? Anyway, I do find this version “brilliant.” Thanks for the laughs!

  4. Great song. Received it at work but sent it to my home address to listen to so I could turn the speakers up as well as not leave an internet trail. Now sending it to my other friends who work in offices.

  5. Dude, those missles are pretty cool. I was kind of dissapointed with their performance however.

    But you gotta check out this game:

    Basically, Moe’s is having a national burrito eating contest and this game goes with it. But it is the funniest thing I’ve ever seen. You gotta watch out for the armadillios. I bet you cant eat 45 burritos!

    -Good luck

  6. Great song, it was funny and here I am sitting in my cubicle thinking maybe I should take off my clothes.

  7. LOL, This is amazing!! I must admit I like this song better than the original.
    Thanks for making me laugh after a long dull day!

  8. Jon and all you commenters,

    Wow! you guys are all totally trick! I have just been informed of the member of the folks who performed “My Cubicle.” SCOTT BENNETT is a terrific guitarist who certainly deserves mention for his work with this tune. Thanks for sure!!!


  9. haha this is awesome! Thanks for posting 🙂

    (if any of my cube-ville neighbors goes nude, I am going home though)

  10. good thing i am out of that “cubicle” thing, but i still envy those who are in……. anyways, at least “cubicle indivs have theme song……!

  11. No longer working in the cubicle world, but I loved the song so much, I had to pass it on to my former co-workers who are still in the 6 by 6 padded cell of boring and drab gray walls. LOL!
    Thanks, it makes me laugh everytime I hear it.

  12. I sent it to EVERONE IN MY ADDRESS BOOK!! I dont think the older
    Generations get it!! It is sooooo funny –I love it & play it when I 1st wake up! I gotta get a life!!

  13. Dude this is hilarious for anyone who has ever worked in corporate America behind a desk in a small lonely cubicle. Ironicly, I am sitting in one right now!!! This should have been the ending song to Officespace(to those who have seen it).

  14. This was really funny….can’t help but share to my fellow officemates….(cube mates?) Hope you’ll do more of this since it makes life funny in this gruesome 6X6…hehehe

  15. This was really stupid. I work in a cube and I did’t find this one bit funny. You people who liked this are idiots. Not funny at all. And I think the dumbest things are funny. so this is really dumb.

  16. And we broke the 200,000 mark! Unbelievable! You people are awesome! As far as music goes, there’s nothing better than to make people smile.

  17. Fantastic. The original is/was over-played for what it is and the parody’s lyrics are more meaningful, despite myself never having been surrounded by a 6’x6′! My job allows me to be more FREE RANGE rather than CAGED…to those who are, put your foot (feet) down and escape !!! Look forward to hearing the next piss-take !!!

  18. Heyy… I´m from Argentina and I´m having a training for work with 3 great American trainers… Today, Mark, one of the guys came with this website to show us the song! We were impressed!! How accurate is the information provided by “Blunt”… Really, so funny u deserve congrats!!!!!!! EXCELENTE!!!!

  19. Great stuff, sends some humour to those who feel the same.
    And getting naked in the cubicle…i’m sure that’s no news to some of us too…haha…

  20. really a good song~~
    I did forward it to all my friends~

    thanks very much~~

    from a small HK potato

  21. I couldn’t stop laughing when I heard your song, that is the funniest thing I have ever heard. Especially the part where I heard the lyrics

    ” When I give a sigh as the boss walks by,
    no one ever talks to me or looks me in the eye.
    And I really should work but instead I just sit here and surf the Internet.”

    Haha, welcome to the story of my life. Thanks for the uplifter, it made me have somewhat a better day today. 😉

  22. Hi Marianne;

    I cannot believe she loves her cubicle enough to write a song. Some days I wish I was sitting in a cubicle instead of running around all day. I thought it was great. I will be singing my cubicle all day.

    louie accetta

  23. I love the song!!! and i thought i’m alone… hahahaha! now, My Cubicle is the song we all sing in the team. thanks for the inspiration! c”,)

  24. Well, what can I say that hasn’t already been said but, goodness…this song really brightened everyone’s day here at work, to say the least. I seriously think if we all relate to this song so much we need to find a way to be rid the cubicle once and for all. We could all strike and this could be our theme song! Hopefully we wouldn’t march nude though. Haha..j/k This 6X6 box pays the bills, sadly.

  26. Too funny, I mamage a dental office and was playing this when one of my adolescent patients started to sing “my testicles”…as my boss came around the corner! I’m so fired!!!

  27. Now that’s funny. I wonder how I’d make that song fly on morning radio? I have a definite mental image of the lyrics – unfortunately – I’m pretty sure the color blue would materialize somewhere in the chorus.

  28. Wow!! That is an incredible tune. I’ve never heard Blunt’s tune (never heard of Blunt either for that matter). Someone emailed me this tune and I was blown away. This is a ‘stand alone’ tune that millions of people can relate to. I have passed this around to everyone I know. Who would have thought it was just a parody. This is beautiful, man. Well produced, VERY well sung. Incredible,
