It seems you've been living on your own
Lonely and free
Looking to make yourself known
Same as me
Well I see you in the public eyes
I see you're looking fine
The boy would be a businessman
And he signs the bottom line

(chorus)
Singing company man, do what you can with my name
Rock'n'roll, man here I am
I'm stacking my claim to fame

He's got the smiling face of a friend
Still you're not quite certain you know him
The smile turns into a grin
What do you owe him
You know you owe him

So if there's something you do well
Something you're proud of
Better to save some for yourself
If that's allowed
The crowd will never know you
You'll hardly know yourself
They'll turn you 'round and blow you up
'til you think you're someone else

- chorus -

He can turn your time to gold
You better make as much as you can my friend
'cause his money will turn you old
And they need a young man
The job takes a young man
