They get up every morning from their 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 takin' care of business (every day)
Takin' care of business (every way)
I've been takin' care of business (it's all mine)
Takin' 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 havin' 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

And we be taking care of business (every day)
Takin' care of business (every way)
We be takin' care of business (it's all mine)
Takin' care of business and working overtime

Mercy
Whoo
Alright, ow

Take good care of my business
When I'm away, every day
Whoo

They get up every morning from their 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 be takin' care of business (every day)
Takin' care of business (every way)
I've been takin' care of business (it's all mine)
Takin' care of business and working overtime, take care

Takin' care of business, whoo
Takin' care of business
Takin' care of business (yep)
Takin' care of business
Takin' care of business (every day)
Takin' care of business (every way)
Takin' care of business (it's all mine)
Takin' care of business and working overtime, whoo

Takin' care of business
Takin' care of business
We be takin' care of business
We be takin' care of business, whoo
Takin' care of business, oh yeah
Takin' care of business
Takin' care of

    General CommentPersonally this song has a lot of meaning to me. I've always thought the "taking care of business" part was in relation to taking a shit. I could be wrong, but I've always thought about it like that. I also usually 'TCOB' at 8:15 so this song really resonates with me.
