TAKING CARE OF BUSINESS BTO
{ 1 phrase guitar alone }
{ 3 phrase band }
They get up every morning from their long clock's warning
There's a whistle up above and people push and people shoving
and if your train's on time you can get to work by nine
If you ever get annoyed look at me I'm self-employed

(( Taking care of business )) every way
(( Taking care of business )), and working overtime, workout
{ guitar solo on 1 chorus }
There's work easy as fishing, you can be a musician
Get a second hand guitar and chances are you go far
People see you having fun just a-lying in the sun
It's the work that we avoid and we're all self-employed

(( Taking care of business )) every way
(( Taking care of business )), and working overtime





( Ha ha! Ya! )
{ guitar solo }
They get up every morning from their long clocks' warning
There's a whistle up above and people push and people shoving
and if your train's on time you can get to work by nine
If you ever get annoyed look at me I'm self-employed

Taking care of business every way
Taking care of business, and working overtime, ooh ya...
{ drums only }
(( Taking care of business )) Woo!
(( Taking care of business )) Ya! { 3 part }
(( Taking care of business )) every day { guitar }
(( Taking care of business )), it's all mine
(( Taking care of business )) { band }
We've been (( taking care of business ))
(( Taking care of business )) every day
(( Taking care of business ))
{ END
