OPENER - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
You get up every morning to the alarm clock's warning
Take the 8:15 into the city
Oh there's a whistle up above, people pushin' people shovin'
The girls all tryin' to look pretty

Well now those four ladies promenade and go
Swing your girl and promenade her home
Well lord I'm takin' care of business, it's all right
Takin' care of business and workin' overtime


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads square thru and go, dosado the corner girl
One time around you touch 1/4 and then scoot back
Come on the boys run right and you square thru three
Swing your corner girl and promenade
Well lord I'm takin' care of business, it's all right
Takin' care of business and workin' overtime


MIDDLE BREAK    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
(Musical interlude for 32 beats)
Well now those four ladies promenade and go
Swing your girl and promenade her home
Well lord I'm takin' care of business, it's all right
Takin' care of business and workin' overtime

Takin' Care Of Business

You get up every morning
From your 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...
Taking care of business every day
Taking care of business every way
I've been taking care of business, it's all mine
Taking 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 having 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
Taking care of business every way
I've been taking care of business, it's all mine
Taking care of business and working overtime

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

You get up every morning
From your 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...
Taking care of business every day
Taking care of business every way
I've been taking care of business, it's all mine
Taking care of business and working overtime

Takin' care of business
Takin' care of business
Takin' care of business
Takin' care of business
Takin' care of business...

Lyrics by Randy Bachman.
Recorded by Bachman Turner Overdrive.
