"Business" as written by and Brian Harold May....
Don't judge me mama
Don't tell me that I've done wrong
It's a hard business
It's a hard business to make it on your own

Don't judge me papa
If I can't handle the things in my head
Because it's a hard business
Such a hard business walking on the edge

I got nothing and no-one in my life
So how can I lose again
Got my feet in muddy water
But I'm gonna find that road again

So I'll be taking care of business
'Cause I know what I'm looking for
Oh I've been working every hour God gives to man
But I still see the same closed door

I've got nothing but trouble in my life
But I feel I've got a lot to give
Every day I try to build a new world
But I've had no-one to build it with

Oh I've been looking for a woman to share my hopes
But I know I ain't a patch on you
And I've been thinking that a woman's God's gift to man
Are you thinking the same way too

So don't leave me mama
Don't make me go on alone
Because it's a hard business
Yes it's a hard business, oooh

Don't leave me papa
When my belief in myself is gone
Because it's a hard business
Such a hard business

Tell me, it's a hard business
Being on my own

    General CommentSuch an honor for me (!) to be the first one posting a comment about this great Brian May rock song... I was a huge fan of Queen when I bought Brian solo albums, Back to the Light and Another World. Those two albums are great, unfortunately they're pretty much unknown here in Canada. I love Brian's solo material because it's so catchy, so rock, although his lyrics reveals him as such a sensitive human person, who's insecure sometimes and wishes to have someone by his side. To me, that's what this song Buisness means. In this song, Brian screams his fears of being alone, facing his insecurites, not making the right choices, feeling that his hopes are gone, etc. But this song ISN'T just complaining, cause obviously, the man still has hope. The line "Are you thinking the same way too?" reveals his hope of going on in this world, metting someone who feels the same insecurites that he does.

    I think a lot of people can relate to that song, and I think it reveals the way of feeling of a very human person, which is beautiful.
