Words and music by John Kay

I was told I had to grease his palm
To walk from school without the fear of harm
He knocked me down and took my dollar from me
And then he lay these pearls of wisdom on me

He say; Business is business, nothing is free
Business is business, don't you blame me
Business is business, you've got to pay
Business is business, can't get away
Business is business, a man's gotta live
And what I can take is more than you'd give

Nothing has changed since I left school behind
The bullies now just all wear suits and ties
They'll buy you lunch to get that dollar from you
And then they'll lay the mumbo-jumbo on you

Business is business, nothing is free
Business is business, don't you blame me
Business is business, you've got to pay
Business is business. can't get away
Business is business, don't call me a crook
It's perfectly legal, I go by the book

?1977 Rambunctious Music (ASCAP)
