"Business" lyrics - BRIAN 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
'Cos it's a hard business
Such a hard business
Walking on the edge

I've 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
'Cos I know what I'm looking for
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
I've been looking for a woman to share my hopes
And 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
'Cos it's a hard business
Yes it's a hard business

Don't leave me Papa
When my belief in myself is gone
'Cos it's a hard business
Such a hard business
Tell me it's a hard business
Being on my own
