Taking Care of Business - The Classic Rock Way

Bachman Turner Overdrive “Takin’ Care of Business”

We all need to take care of business. Business begins anywhere from 7:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. The lyrics to the song say it all:
“You get up every morning
From you 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
Taking care of business every way
I've been taking care of business,it's all mine
Taking care of business and working 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

Taking care of business every day
Taking care of business every way
I've been taking care of business, it's all mine
Taking care of business and working overtime
Funky...

Take good care of my business
When I'm away, every day whoo!

You get up very morning
From you 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
Taking care of business every way
I've been taking care of business, it's all mine
Taking care of business and working overtime
Work out

Taking care of business
Taking care of business
Taking care of business
Taking care of business

Taking care of business every day
Taking care of business every way
I've been taking care of business, it's all mine
Taking care of business and working overtime...oohhh

Taking care of business
Taking care of business
We be taking care of business
We be taking care of business
Taking care of business”

Business is different for everyone. For some, it is being a musician. When you work as a musician your normal work day doesn’t really begin at 8:15 a.m. They really don’t have a normal work day. Every musician does promotion, performance and appearances. Day and night they have business. For those performers we in Greenville are lucky to have grace our town let’s all say thanks and remember they are Takin Care of Business everyday, and night.
