Down And Out – Genesis

Check my bags, boy! Where’s my room?
Gotta sit on the phone, that’s my game.
Keep up the pressure all the way!

I don’t want to beat about the bush
but none of us are getting any younger.
There’s people out there who could take your place.
A more commercial view! A fresher face!

I need a shower, take a nap
I’ll meet you in the bar, we must have a rap.
There’s a lot on the line, a lot to say.
And there’s something I must tell you today.

You and I both knew the score,
you can’t go on like this forever.
So it’s with regret that I tell you now
that from this moment on,
you’re on your own!

I don’t talk round corners, right between the eyes
If you’re slow they’ll run past you,
Stand tall, see them falling over.
I walk a straight line, right between the eyes.
But just show me the door, show me someone who’ll do it better.

The drinks are on me, be my guest.
Smoke a cigar? Take the best.
Don’t hedge your bets, we can make a deal,
got it in your pocket, how do you feel?

So glad that’s over, now you know,
but I’m only acting under orders.
