The Rocky Horror Auditing Show

 

Welcome back to WIIA – the home of all the internal audit hits. Today, a special treat – the hit song from that cult classic "The Rocky Horror Auditing Show."  Go ahead; you can admit it – you've all been there for the 12:00 showings, sneaking out at noon for the chance to dress up as your favorite twisted internal auditor. And you've also sung, danced, and shouted out the lines as the two naive auditors found themselves falling ever deeper into Dr. Frank Lee Bored's twisted vision of internal audit.
 
So join in as we play "Let's Hit the Milestones Again."
 
 
It's astounding. Time is fleeting.
Meetings take their toll.
Some hours remaining.
Not for very much longer.
I still must test controls.
 
I remember doing my audits; plenty of time to spare.
But pressure is on now and the managers calling
 
Let's hit the milestones again.
Let's hit the milestones again.
 
It's just the skip of a test,
And then avoiding their errors.
Put your questions aside
And then pretend you care.
But it's the draft report
That really drives you insane.
Let's hit the milestones again.
Let's hit the milestones again.
 
It's so dreamy, a small touch of scheming,
And the work all will get done on time.
You re-focus attention and ignore comprehension.
Under budget. You're a star.
 
With a bit of a mind flip, you can input your time slip
And never be worried again.
It's the end of frustration, and you're filled with elation.
 
Let's hit the milestones again.
Let's hit the milestones again.
 
Well I was walking down the hall thinking 'bout the plan
When the CAE took me by the hand.
He showed me a list, when everything was due.
He said "That's all the counts. Nothing else to prove."
He smiled at me and I felt relieved.
Beat the system; all our goals achieved.
 
Let's hit the milestones again.
Let's hit the milestones again.
 
It's just the skip of a test
And then avoiding their errors.
Put your questions aside
And then pretend you care.
But it's the draft report
That really drives you insane.
Let's hit the milestones again.
Let's hit the milestones again.
