The Executive Song (working title)
Hurry up, hurry up, get those papers,
Hurry up, hurry up, make that call,
Hurry up, hurry up, close that deal
Hurry up now and get it all.
Hurry up, hurry up, where's that contract?
Hurry up, who's been at my desk?
Hurry up, hurry up, where's that coffee?
Gotta move fast and be the best.
Every morning I get up with voices screaming in my head
Don't you know today's the day to make it big or end up dead?
Hurry up now, borrow and steal
Hurry up now and make that deal.
Hurry up, hurry up, hurry up, hurry up
Hold it, Benson, what's the story?
Thought we had that one sewn up tight
What do you mean he got away?
I'm telling you man, that can't be right!
Climbing along the corporate ladder
Come along someone in my way
Give 'em a kick, what does it matter?
Gotta move up so what the hey
Don't you think that if he had the chance that he'd do just the same
He would kick me twice as hard, it's really just a bloody game
Pass it along, ready or not,
Pass it along and don't get caught.
Telephone ringing, everyone shouting
Here I am at my mid day peak (?)
Wouldn't I give a thousand bucks to catch a nod of blessed sleep
Hope theone I trample on is not my one and only friend...
What if I must? What if I must? Trample that guy into the dust
Ain't it a shame? Ain't it a bust? Trample them all now if I must...
Hurry up, hurry up, hurry up, hurry up.....
Here on the the top and life's not easy
Plenty of work and not much fun
Gotta make all the big decisions,
Gotta make all the wheels run
What if they knew I hadn't a clue
And keeping my job's my only goal
What if they knew? What if they knew? What if they knew?
Hell if they knew!
? Secretary crap.
Gotta go make a presentation
Pray to the Lord that it goes well
Never a hint of hessitation
Put on a show and make a sell
Or perhaps I should go in and tell them what I really think
Lay it out in black and white and tell them there I think it stinks
Maybe it's my one big chance to stand up tall and be a man
? Integrtiy and honour I never Had
Have I gone mad? Have I gone mad? Lord above, I think I have!
Hurry up, hurry up!
Hurry up, hurry up!
I knew him well, old what's his name, for 20 good years into this
Let's take a moment, bow our heads and contemplate how much he earned.
Everybody! Back to work!
Hurry up hurry up, get those papers...etc.
