Bachman-Turner Overdrive – Taking Care Of Business lyrics

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...
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 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 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

One, two, three, four
And we 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

    The song has two "subjects" that it speaks to: "you" and "i", and the contrast of their lives. You get up and go to work during the day (a slave to the corporate world), while I work at nothing all day. The "i" is the musician (who typically works at night and is self-employed as opposed to business-employed). Or you could go phallic and say the musician dude is "taking care of business" while the others are working.
