Bachman-turner OverdriveTakin' Care of Business

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 pushin', people shovin'
And the girls, who try to look pretty

And if your train's 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 takin' care of business every day
Takin' care of business every way
I've been takin' care of business, it's all mine
Takin' care of business and working overtime, work out

If it were easy as fishin', 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 takin' care of business every day
Takin' care of business every way
We've been takin' care of business, it's all mine
Takin' care of business and working overtime

Take good care of my business
When I'm away, every day

You get up every morning from the alarm clock's warning
Take the 8:15 into the city
There's a whistle up above and people pushin', people shovin'
And the girls, who try to look pretty

And if your train's 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 takin' care of business every day
Takin' care of business every way
I've been takin' care of business, it's all mine
Takin' care of business and working overtime to get

Takin' care of business
Takin' care of business
Takin' care of business
Takin' care of business

Takin' care of business every day
Takin' care of business every way
Takin' care of business, it's all mine
Takin' care of business, working overtime

Takin' care of business
Takin' care of business
We've been takin' care of business
We've been takin' care of business

Takin' care of business
Takin' care of business
Takin' care of business
