There's a little boy out in the driveway His basketball in hand Saying Daddy could we play a little one on one You pat him on the back and say not now son I'm a busy man
His sister's out on the sidewalk Setting up a lemonade stand Hey Daddy don't you want to buy a glass from me You say maybe later, can't you see I'm a busy man
[Chorus] You got to go, got to run Hit it hard and get it done Everyone can see you're going far You got responsibilities A crazy schedule that you keep And when you say that time's a-wasting You don't know how right you are Busy man
There's a woman in the bedroom crying Saying I thought we had plans You say honey I'm sorry I'll make it up When the job slows down and I'm not such A busy man
Have you ever seen a headstone with these words "If only I had spent more time at work"
There's a call one day from the office They need you down in Birmingham You say no way, the weekend's mine I got plans with the kids and a date with my wife I'm a busy man

Erika from West Band, WiOk, this is my favorite song of all time. I'm fifteen years old, and I've been listening to this song my entire life. I remember back when I was around 4 or 5, and I listened to this song constantly. I thought it was the cutest song i'd ever heard, and I still do. It sounds exactly like MY Dad, so this song is kind of an inspiration to me, since he's pretty much a work-aholic. But I just think the song is pretty. Simple, but it gets out a very important meaning to life: enjoy it, because it's short. Here's to you, Billy Ray.... :)
Karen from Manchester, NhWho thought to file this under "More songs about an old girlfriend or boyfriend"? This song has NOTHING to do with that.
