Business is business.
Why do you want to dance for the man?
You follow his orders wherever you can
when he says jump you say "How high?"
and while you're jumping life passes you by.
You don't know your kids they don't know you
You're the person they see in her Jimmy Choos
with a wardrobe of clothes that cost a packet
who leaves each morning in a business jacket.
Could the life you're leading be any madder?
You say you're climbing the career ladder.
There's room on the rung for you alone
with great reception for your mobile phone.
And once you reach the top (if you do) what then?
Your kids off the rails, you intimidate men.
You've nothing left but your great career
will it kiss you goodnight and dry your tears?
Is it worth everything you threw away?
How successful do you feel today
after being told "the bottom line's so low
we're having to let a few people go."?
You've worked really hard
but it has to be
this is business not family.
