"Walking papers" in lyrics

I hope you know that all I want from you is sex
To be with someone that looks smashing in athletic wear
And if your haircut isn't right you'll be dismissed
Get your walking papers and you can leave now

I don't know what to want from this world

John Grant - Queen of Denmark
