Up and at 'em William Bailey.
You'd think that you were having the time of your life.
Kicking around with the affluent types, and selling insurance to people for life
Well, they always say that you're worth as much as you make.
Your parents and friends must be proud now you're in with a notable crowd.

You're looking very bumptious lately. Today you're having lunch with the boss and his crew.
So young and ambitious and ready to prove that the world has been waiting for someone like you
Although by their scales your worth is comparably pale,
At least you know that you're worth more than the waiter who's holding the door.

Your understanding is you're either in flight or lost in the clouds,
And if you're lost you're worth nothing. You've got to be part of a notable crowd

You're quite a number William Bailey.
Feeling pretty special now you're with the scene.
Acting obnoxious and rather obscene, and waving a gold card for all there is to see.
Yeah, screw the rest, if your boss and his flock are impressed.
Because now you're on top of the world, or at least until I overheard;
The words were hard and slow, "Your quotas aren't being filled, Will."
"We have to let you go."
Then I presented the bill.

Are you still believing that you're either in flight or lost in the clouds?
And if you're lost, you're worth nothing. You've got to be part of the notable crowd.
But now you're just like me. You're worth as much as me.
