Song Lyrics

It`s good to be here! How`ve you been?

Check my bags, boy! Where`s my room?

I sit on the phone, that`s my game,

Keep up the pressure all the way!

I don`t want to beat about the bush

but none of us are getting any younger.

There`s people out there who could take your place.

A more commercial view! A fresher face!

I need a shower, take a nap

I`ll meet you in the bar, we must have a rap.

There`s a lot on the line, a lot to say.

There`s something I must tell you today.

You and I both know the score,

you can`t go on like this forever.

So it`s with regret that I tell you now

that from this moment on,

you`re on your own!

I don`t talk round corners, it`s right between the eyes

If you`re slow they`ll run past you,

Stand tall, see them falling over.

I walk a straight line, it`s right between the eyes.

Well show me the door, show me someone who`ll do it better.

The drinks are on me, be my guest.

Smoke a cigar? Take the best.

Don`t hedge your bets, we can make a deal,

you got it in your pocket, how do you feel?

So glad that`s over, now you know,

but I`m only acting under orders.

And looking down on you from way up here.

You`ve got to sink or swim, get off the floor!

I don`t talk round corners, it`s right between the eyes

If you`re slow they`ll run past you,

Stand tall, see them falling over,

I walk a straight line, right between the eyes.

Well show me the door, show me someone who`ll do it better.
