Takin’ Care of Business — Bachman-Turner Overdrive

You get up every morning
From alarm clock’s warning
Take the eight-fifteen 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 train’s on time
You can get to work by nine
And start your slavin’ jobs and 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’ve been 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 fishing
You could be a musician
If you could make sounds loud or mellow
Get a secondhand 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
You 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’ve been 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, funky

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

You get up every morning
From alarm clock’s warning
Take the eight-fifteen 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 train’s on time
You can get to work by nine
And start your slavin’ jobs and 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’ve been 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, take care

Takin’ care of business
Takin’ care of business
Takin’ care of business
