Face the Music Lyrics
Glass Ceiling Blues

I got a strange, strange feeling that something ain't right,
That someone is concealing my future ain't too bright,
I work all day, I work all night, I pay my corporate dues,
No matter what I do, I got the glass ceiling blues.

My IQ's 205, got a Ph.D or two,
But I just can't get ahead, no matter what I do,
Oh yeah, I went to college, just like one of the guys,
Got a briefcase full of knowledge, much to my surprise,
No equal pay for equal work, no chance to get ahead,
My company's in the black, but me I'm seeing red.

Looking at the org chart, I don't see my name up there,
Just lost my corner office to the new guy with no hair,
The boys upstairs are dealing, they're smoking big cigars,
Me, I'm doing overtime, keeping pennies in a jar
I'm a woman, not a man, willing, ready, able
Those men don't understand I can bring it to the table.

Got a strange, strange feeling that something ain't right,
That someone is concealing my future ain't too bright,
I work all day, I work all night, I pay my corporate dues,
No matter what I do, I got the glass ceiling blues.

No equal work for equal pay, no chance to get ahead,
The company's in the black, but me I'm seeing red,
That's it, I'm done, I'm going home, take the bathroom key,
I'll make my own decisions, I'm finally feeling free,
I'll get my DBA, then you call and pay my fee,
That's it, I'm gone, I'm outta here, I'm taking this one for me.
