Taking Care Of Business
Words & Music:
C Bb F C [basic riff for entire song]
You get up every morning from your alarm clock's warning,
Take the 8:15 into the city
There's a whistle up above and people pushing, people shoving
And the girls who try to look pretty.
And if your trainŐs on time, you can get to work by nine,
And start your slaving job to get your pay.
If you ever get annoyed, look at me I'm self-employed,
I love to work at nothing all day. And I'll be...
Taking care of business every day.
Taking care of business every way.
I've been taking care of business, it's all mine.
Taking care of business and working overtime. Work out!
If it were easy as fishing, you could be a musician.
If you could make sounds loud or mellow.
Get a second-hand guitar, chances are you'll go far
If you get in with the right bunch of fellows.
People see you having fun, just a-lying in the sun
Tell them that you like it this way.
It's the work that we avoid and we're all self-employed.
We love to work at nothing all day. And we be...
VERSE 1 & 2 REPRISE:
Taking care of business! [repeat and out]
