Lyrics
Company Man
Sniff 'n' the Tears, 1982***
Ride Blue Divide

He wears a suit an an even suntan
travels the world he's a company man
rumor has it that death and intrigue
are the stock in trade of his company
No wild fantasy he's as real as you and me
an operator yes indeed - dirty tricks you wouldn't believe

no rain hard enough to wash away his sin
no pay high enough for the game he's in

Plans are changed governments fall
where the company man has been known to call
the third world points A to Z
have the dubious pleasure of his company
No wild fantasy he's as real as you and me
an operator yes indeed - dirty tricks you wouldn't believe

no rain hard enough to wash away his sin
no pay high enough for the game he's in

From Santiago to Mozambique
he protects the interests of the company
every day the headlines scream
but the man behind them stays unseen
No wild fantasy he's as real as you and me
an operator yes indeed - dirty tricks you wouldn't believe

no rain hard enough to wash away his sin
no pay high enough for the game he's in
