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
ooh, i’ve been working every hour god gives to man
but i still see the same closed door, yeah

i’ve got nothing but trouble in my life
but i feel i’ve got a lot to give
everyday i try to build a new world
but i’ve had no-one to build it with
oh, 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 its a hard business
yes it’s a hard business
oooh, oh, oh, ooh

don’t leave me papa
when my belief in myself is gone
‘cos it’s a hard business
such a hard business, oooh, ooh
tell me it’s a hard business
being on my own
