Redefining expectations

from by The fishermen & the priestess

about

In two of the companies I worked for, "redefines expectations" is the highest rating you can get during a performance review. I always thought it was funny how the rating could mean either that you're really good or really bad.

So I decided to write this song, about a guy who's... extreme. Is he an amazing co-worker? Or terrible?

lyrics

[Intro]
I had a co-worker
Whose name was John Passions
And working with them
Redefined my expectations

[Verse]
He taught me so much
He made me work harder
Every time I saw his work
I would feel a bit smarter

[Chorus]
I tell you, I tell you
Every time something was wrong
The first thing I would do
Was go talk to John

[Verse]
Everyone knew who he was
He quickly made himself a name
Once John joined us
Our team was never the same

[Chorus]
I tell you, I tell you
Every time something was wrong
The first thing I would do
Was go talk to John

[Verse]
One day, John left our company
Many sighs were heard that day
I didn't say a word
'Cause I didn't know what to say

[Outro]
The truth is...
I could never say enough good things about John
