I have to tell a story - about a man
Never in the mood - to change his life
Nobody wants to help him - as he spirals down
But one day the wrong decision - hit him overnight

No more cocktail parties - champagnes run dry
No company take-overs - stock markets high
No more hand-jobs in the boardroom - sex is history
And no saunas, no jacuzzis - the penalties you'll reap

At last he realized - he did it wrong
Messed big time everywhere - double-dealing lies

Hes going down on his bad luck - his just deserts
Hes going down on his bad luck - what he deserved

His old man told him always - listen son
Its a two-way street to fortune - you gotta hit and run
Don't forget the mirror - look whos behind
And don't you come up crying - when it's faster coming down

At last he realized - he did it wrong
Messed big time everywhere - double-dealing lies

Hes going down on his bad luck - his just deserts
Hes going down on his bad luck - what he deserved
Hes going down on his bad luck - it's his time
Hes going down on his bad luck - can't rewind

Do you get the story - you know this man
Have you learned a lesson - do you understand
When all you got is crystal - you shouldn't cast a stone
So be careful when you go up - cause you'll meet them coming down

Hes going down on his bad luck - his just deserts
Hes going down on his bad luck - what he deserved
Hes going down on his bad luck - it's his time
Hes going down on his bad luck - can't rewind
