Here is a slight variation of one of the verses of Bhaja Govindam!!! 

(8 th century AD) Bhajagovindam

Punarapi jananam punarapi maranam
punarapi janani jatare shayanam
Iha sansaare khalu dussahre
Kripaya paare paahi muraare 

Bhaja Govindam bhaja Govindam
Govindam bhaja muDamathe

Again birth, again death, and again lying in mother's womb-this samsaara
process is very hard to cross over... save me, Muraari through Thy infinite
kindness.

Praise Govinda, praise Govinda, 
O fool, praise Govinda
(Adi Shankaracharya)

Now Bha job Govindam (20 th century)

Punarapi HIRING punarapi FIRING
Punarapi PLACEMENT CENTER payanam
(punarapi HEAD HUNTER sharanam)
Iha JOB MARKET bhalu dussahre
kripaya PAYre paahi muraare

BRING JOB Govindam BRING JOB Govindam
Govindam BRING JOB TO THIS MuDamathe

Again hiring, again firing, and again approach placemen center
(again surrender to  head hunter)-this job market is very hard...
pay me, Muraari  through Thy infinite kindness.

Get me a job Govinda, get me a job govinda,
Govinda get this idiot a job!
Dasan,
K. Sreekrishna (Tatachar)
