Taking Care Of Business
(Randy Bachman)

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
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

"Taking Care Of Business" ist ein Song von "Bachman Turner Overdrive", deren größter Erfolg das Lied "You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet" war. Im Jahre 2020 habe ich "Taking Care..." aufgenommen, mit an Wahrscheinlichkeit grenzender Sicherheit aus Langeweile, aber die Soli zu spielen hat Spaß gemacht. Unter anderem. Wir hätten den Song garantiert auch schon mit "Layout" gespielt, wenn ihn irgendwer gemocht hätte.

Eicher Blättchen:

"J ochen Günther hat sich bei all seinen CDs unglaublich viel Mühe gegeben. Irgendwann wird man das vielleicht auch hören können."
