There he goes out to the desert
Where he makes a deal.
He's got plans, and no one stands
In his way, a back of steel.
Got to find a fortune, scorching in the desert sun.
Looking out for no one else but number one.

Getting down to the wire,
Getting down to the wire.

Mister merchant, looking urgent,
Merchandising for a score.
Calculating, tabulating,
Investigating for some more.
A calendar of spring and summer,
Autumn, winter for your wall.
Every month a different model,
This one's bound the beat them all.

Getting down to the wire,
Getting down to the wire.

Trading in his old attire for a coat of many colors,
A red carnation, big vacation
Off to see Jamaican shores,
A calendar of spring and summer,
Autumn, winter for your wall.
Every month a different model,
This one's bound the beat them all.

Getting down to the wire,
Getting down to the wire.

Mister merchant, looking urgent,
Merchandising for a score.
Calculating, tabulating,
Investigating for some more.
