Company Time Lyrics

by Linda Davis

Ruthie got a job and nothing went right
She woke up in a nervous sweat
In the middle of the night
And every morning of every day
Ruthie she would end up crying, Lord
And the boss would come and say

Hey if you're gonna lose your mind
Don't do it on company time
Aw girl, you're gonna lose some pay
If you wanna behave that way
On company time

Ruthie's got a kid and he just turned two
Late last year his daddy walked out
Said "Now it's all up to you"
The sitter called, has to leave pretty soon
Ruthie asked her boss "Would it be alright
To go home this afternoon?"

Hey, if you're always in a bind
Don't do it on company time
Aw girl, you're gonna lose some pay
If you wanna behave that way
On company time

Now Ruthie's upstairs on the seventh floor
Executive Assistant to the Chairman of the Board
And every morning on the speaker phone
The Chairman says "Ruthie you're driving me crazy
Can we be alone"

Hey, if you wanna lose your mind
Let's do it on company time
Aw girl, we're gonna raise your pay
If you wanna behave that way
On company time, on company time
On company time, on company time
