I promise that…

All paperwork I’ll do on time
No working hours spent writing rhyme
I’ll do the jobs I say I’ll do
All good ideas I’ll follow through

I won’t buy gadgets on E-bay
Or wear my flashing lights all day
Only spend what is agreed
New waistcoats only when I need

With waitresses I’ll flirt much less
Won’t look down every ladies dress
I will not treat as second class
A girl without a perfect arse

I’ll stand my colleagues to a round
With cash I’ve earned not change I’ve found
Not call my bosses stupid fools
And sometimes I’ll obey the rules

I’ll go to bed in time to sleep
Won’t get all presents on the cheap
All this I’ll do in year ’08
Or year 09 if I start late…
