You get up every morning ~ From your alarm clock's warning
Take the 8:15 into the city
There's a whistle up above ~ And people pushin', people shovin'
And the girls who try to look pretty

And if your train's on time ~ You can get to work by nine
And start your slaving job to get your pay
If you ever get annoyed ~ Look at me I'm self-employed
I love to work at nothing all day

And I'll be...
Taking care of business every day . . . every day
I've been taking care of business, it's all mine . . . workin overtime
Work out

If it were easy as fishin' ~ You could be a musician
If you could make sounds loud or mellow
Get a second-hand guitar ~ Chances are you'll go far
If you get in with the right bunch of fellows

People see you having fun ~ Just a-lying in the sun
Tell them that you like it this way
It's the work that we avoid ~ And we're all self-employed
We love to work at nothing all day

And we be...
TCB TCB ~ Take good care of my business
When I'm away, every day whoo!
