"I think storyboard on a Friday night should be a song. @webbot15 Make it happen bro!"
That's pretty much all the prompting I needed to make a song about working all too common long hours on animated productions.


It's a Friday night,
Glow of the Cintiq Light.
Got a job to do and I'm gonna do it right.

Slam the headphones on,
Pick a pumpin' power song.
Tweet out to all the peeps who'll work along.

'Cause we're boardin' up and keying out tonight!
It's all layed out, the edit's looking tight.

We're making animation!
Work hard and working late.
These boards are looking great!

Getting through my quota,
Need that caffeine hit.
Rough down, clean up, scrub through, ctrl-s, force quit.

Fast approaching daylight,
Left midnight in our wake,
Churning through revisions, add another take.

Any other job we'd've given up hours ago.
Burn the candle at both ends for a kick arse show.

We're making animation!
One day we'll work enough
Get to do our own stuff.


Last bit of the night.
Saturday is shining bright.
Should probably go outside but I've earned a sleep, alright!?

Slowly whirring sound,
as computer powers down.
Drag myself to bed, pass out on a cloud.

Nocturnal is the life we lead by choice.
Our battle cry rings out with raising voice!

We work in animation!
We work because we love,
can't ever get enough!

Script, boards, layout, design.
On two's'll be fine.
