Its good to be here! howve you been?
Check my bags, boy! wheres my room?
I sit on the phone, thats my game,
Keep up the pressure all the way!

I dont want to beat about the bush
But none of us are getting any younger.
Theres people out there who could take your place.
A more commercial view! a fresher face!

I need a shower, take a nap
Ill meet you in the bar, we must have a rap.
Theres a lot on the line, a lot to say.
Theres something I must tell you today.

You and I both know the score,
You cant go on like this forever.
So its with regret that I tell you now
That from this moment on,
Youre on your own!

I dont talk round corners, its right between the eyes
If youre slow theyll run past you,
Stand tall, see them falling over.
I walk a straight line, its right between the eyes.
Well show me the door, show me someone wholl do it better.

The drinks are on me, be my guest.
Smoke a cigar? take the best.
Dont hedge your bets, we can make a deal,
You got it in your pocket, how do you feel?

So glad thats over, now you know,
But Im only acting under orders.
And looking down on you from way up here.
Youve got to sink or swim, get off the floor!

I dont talk round corners, its right between the eyes
If youre slow theyll 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 wholl do it better.
