Face the Music Lyrics

I'm a 24/7 from the heart of Indiana
I never take time for myself, (it's not that I don't wanna).
It just seems that my business
Is cranking day and night
And I ain't got time for sleepin',
I gotta catch an early flight.

Cause I'm a worker, not a shirker,
An "A" player straight from the midwest,
I'm eating fishbone diagrams
And what I'm drinking is high test.
Caffeine is my middle name,
Teleconference is my first.
If I don't do my 24/7
Things will get much worse.

I'm a worker, not a shirker,
Don't need no magic pill
Outsourced all my sleep to a local guy named Bill,
Yes, it's a 24/7
And I work around the clock,
If we acquire heaven
What happens to our stock?

Got a husband, got a wife,
Got two kids, two cats, two cars,
But if I don't get a life…
("Hey I'm on a cell phone call with Lars!"
Yes, the deal's been done in Norway
And deep in the south of France
Hey boss, we've done it your way,
Put our vendors in a trance.

So it's 24/7, no more 9 to 5,
I'm on the net with Neptune
And that ain't no cosmic jive,
We're going beyond global,
It's interplanetary now,
I need to call my family,
But I forgot just how.

'Cause I'm a worker, not a shirker,
I come early, I stay late,
Getting more and more berserker
Talking vendors down on rates,
Around the clock, around the world,
Around and round it goes,
But if I ever get to sleep
Only God and Muddy Waters know.
