Godley & Creme – Business Is Business lyrics

Keep it simple
Keep it neat
Aim your hook
At the man in the street
Throw him the bones
But freeze the meat
'Cos the meat goes off
But the beat goes on
Business is business
Business is business
Business is business
And only the tough survive
Radio fallout
In an open prison
Jazz-based soul tinged
Watered down rhythm
Too many pretty sleeves
With Nothing in 'em
Johnny be good or bad
But not indifferent
Hard-core bland-out
Stocking filler
Soft-sell overkill
Tee-shirts given
Everybody's wearing them
See you at the party tonight
M. O. Are. Is good
M. O. Are. Is safe
M. O. Are. Is here
Just give it to 'em
Never think about it
Force fed
On half dead melodies
Dragged up from the archives
Playing on your sympathies
I'm being brain-washed
And don't know how to block it
'Cos something in the chorus
Burns a hole in my pocket
And I can't feel the pain
When my finger's in the socket
And only the numb survive
Only the numb survive
Only the numb survive
Business is business
Business is business
Business is business
Everyone was doing it
You weren't at the party last night
M. O. Are. Is good
M. O. Are. Is safe
M. O. Are. Is you
M. O. Are. Is here
Where
Relax, Relax
Relax, Relax
Relax, Relax
Relax, Relax
Maybe you can think of a way
To turn me on
