There's a little boy out in the driveway
His basketball in hand
Saying daddy can we play a little one on one
You pat him on the back and say not now son
Im a busy man
His sisters out on the sidewalk
Setting up a lemonade stand
Hey daddy don't you want to buy a glass from me
You say maybe later can't you see
Im a busy man
You got to go, got to run
Hit it hard and get it done
Everyone can see you're going far
You got responsibilities
A crazy schedule that you keep
And when you say that times a wasting
You don't know how right you are
Busy man
There's a woman in the bedroom crying
Saying i thought we had plans
You say honey im sorry I'll make it up
When the job slows down and im not such
A busy man
You got to go, got to run
Hit it hard and get it done
Everyone can see you're going far
You got responsibilities
A crazy schedule that you keep
And when you say that time's a-wasting
You don't know how right you are
Busy manHave you ever seen a headstone with these words
"If only I had spent more time at work"

There's a call one day from the office
They need you down in Birmingham
You say no way, the weekend's mine
I got plans with the kids and a date with my wife
I'm a busy man

You got to go, got to run
Take a break and have some fun
Those that love you most
Say you've come far
Got some new priorities
In that schedule that you keep
And when you say that time's a-wasting
Now you know how right you are
Busy man

    I absolutly LOVE THIS SONG!!! It is about a guy who doesn't know how to appreciate life. But when he finally gets a weekend off, he starts to think "hey! this is the real life. Nothin' is gettin in the way!"
