My employer has a little list (and they'll none of them be missed)

I started this some time ago, but never posted it, because I got a bit stuck. But now that my department is finally closing, I guess I should just post it as is. It's a parody of the most popular song in Gilbert & Sullivan's The Mikado, where Koko has a list of people to behead...

(elindal is probably the only one here who knows the song, but oh well...)

The List

As someday it may happen that a saving must be found;
I've got a little list.
I've got a little list.

Of interstate departments that we well may do without;
Who never would be missed.
Who never would be missed.

There's the Alcatel technician down in Richmond for a start,
And Billing reps who tear out hair when Forte falls apart,
Or Credit who call customers to get our money back,
Or old goth types from Stuckey's days; Let's fire those in black.
And barefoot long-haired DBAs; I'm sure you get the gist.
They'd none of them be missed.
They'd none of them be missed.
He's got 'em on the list,
He's got 'em on the list,
And they'll none of them be missed.
They'll none of them be missed.

And Fulfilment down in Melbourne,
who do nothing but cause strife.
And you'll note they're always pissed,
So we'll put them on the list.

[insert more verse]

It really doesn't matter who you put upon the list,
For they'll none of them be missed.
They'll none of them be missed.

You can put them on the list.
You can put them on the list.
And they'll none of them be missed.
They'll none of them be missed.
