    I wrote this years ago and I did do a straight finger-style version. But then I decided to do a jazzier version. The backing tracks were done in Band in a Box and then I edited them a lot. Sam Reynolds (Samfranklin)did his magic and added some backing vocals as only he can. The beats at the beginning were just count in beats but we decided to leave them in.
    The verse that talks about the product getting shipped to Brazil was true. When I worked in a corporate art department one of our products came back from China with paint that had a high heavy metal reading (Cadmium red paint if I remember). But Brazil's standard was slightly lower so we shipped it to that market. The product bombed anyway.
    Lyrics:
    I’m gonna have another meeting
    The thirteenth one this week.
    They’re gonna give us donuts.
    We’re gonna have pastries
    We’re gonna have white powdered stuff
    to Stir in our coffee
    Yes we’ll have another meeting
    I’ll probably fall asleep.
    Tom will show us 80 slides
    on his power point projector.
    Chris and Kim might drop in
    with laptop computers.
    Phil and Kate will show up late
    They both seem kinda cranky-
    It’s just a guess (we’re takin’ bets)
    There’s been some hanky panky.
    Chorus: Yes we’ll have another meeting
    The fourteenth one this week.
    We’ll have another meeting
    I’ll probably fall asleep.
    I came up with some products
    that failed a few tests.
    They say they cause cancer,
    But hey, what the heck!
    Well someone had a great idea
    I think that it was Phil.
    We packed that stuff in boxes
    and shipped it to Brazil.
    Chorus: Yes we’ll have another meeting
    The fifteenth one this week.
    We’ll have another meeting
    I’ll probably fall asleep.
    Well the boys came down from marketing
    The girls came up from sales
    No one noticed Mr. Smith
    was looking rather pale.
    The meeting was a marathon.
    It went for 3 straight days,
    When someone finally figured out
    that Smith had passed away.
    We paused for a moment...
    I pondered my own life.
    Then we had another meeting
    To write a memo to his wife.
    Well they say we made a profit and
    The workers would be proud.
    I probably won't announce it
    cuz the factory’s too loud.
    I'm giving out some bonuses,
    The biggest goes to me.
    When we have another meeting in the state of Hawaii.
    Chorus: Yes we’ll have another meeting
    The sixteenth one this week.
    We’ll have another meeting
    I’ll probably fall asleep.
    I'm gonna (take all my managers
    and stack them end to (G)end
    Put em in a conference room
    with )ten vice-presidents
    I'll bring in five consultants
    Let's see how much they know
    Oh it's just another meeting
    That's as far as it will go
