Testo down and out - genesis

It's good to be here! How've you been?

Check my begs 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
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 for ever

So it's with regret 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

And looking down on you from way up here

You've gotta sink or swim
get off the floor!



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
