The Peppermint Trolley Company – 9 O'Clock Business Man lyrics

Listen to all the soudns of a morning come rollin' around
I'm the 9 o'clock businessman going to work downtown
In the city it's like this at every day like 9 to 5
And you know she mustn't miss going to work downtown

Do you, do you, do you
Do you, do you, do you
Do you, do you, do you
Do you, do you work?

Listen to all the sounds, listen to all the sounds
Doesn't have to be this way if he spent his every day in the park
Questioning time away

He is living the life of a millionaire
(Living his life, yeah)
Living his life pass me by
Everything green, everyone happy
Yellow sunshine in every way

In the city it's like this at every day it's 9 to 5
And he knows he mustn't miss going to work downtown
Doens't even hear the sound, doesn't even hear the sound
Going to work downtown, going to work downtown
Doesn't even hear the sound of the sunshine calling
"Go with me and exaggerate relief"
