Takin' Care of Business is a song recorded by the Bachman–Turner Overdrive in 1973.

A snippit of the song was used as part of Chuck E. Live 1992 before transitioning to Rhymin' Rap, while the full song was re-recorded by the Avenger voices for the January 2008 Show.

Lyrics (1992)[]

Chuck E.: You get up every morning from alarm clock's warning
Take the 8:15 into the city
There's a whistle up above and people pushing, people shoving
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 slavin' jobs and 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've been
All: Takin' care of business
Chuck E.: Every day
All: Takin' care of business
Chuck E.: Every way
All: I've been takin' care of business
Chuck E.: It's all mine
All: Takin' care of business and working overtime, work out

(Guitar solo)

Chuck E.: There's work easy as fishing, if you'd be a musician
If you could make sounds loud or mellow
Get a secondhand 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've been
All: Takin' care of business
Chuck E.: Everybody clap, yeah!
All: Takin' care of business
Chuck E.: WHOO!!!
All: I've been takin' care of business
Chuck E.: It's all mine
All: Takin' care of business and working overtime

Lyrics (2008)[]

Munch: You get up every morning from alarm clock's warning
Take the 8:15 into the city
There's a whistle up above and people pushing, people shoving
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 slavin' jobs and get your pay
If you ever get annoyed, look at me, I'm self-employed
I love to work at nothing all day
Oh, yeah!

And I've been
All: Takin' care of business
Munch: Every day
All: Takin' care of business
Munch: Every way, I've been
All: Takin' care of business
Munch: It's all mine
All: Takin' care of business
Munch: And working overtime, work out

Oh, yeah! Come on, Jasper!
Jasper: Where're we goin'?

(Guitar solo; Munch laughs)

Jasper: Oh, yeah!

Munch: If it were easy as fishing, you could be a musician
If you could make sounds loud or mellow
Get a secondhand 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
You 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

That's right, we've been
All: Takin' care of business
Munch: Every day
All: Takin' care of business
Munch: Every way, I've been
All: Takin' care of business
Munch: It's all right
All: Takin' care of business
Munch: And working overtime, work out, OW!

(Guitar solo)

Jasper: Break it down!

(Drum solo)

Munch: Yeah, let's go!
Jasper: C'mon, Pasqually! Break it down, baby!
Munch: Take good care of my business! When I'm away! Everyday! WHOO!!!

(Guitar solo)

You get up every morning from alarm clock's warning
Take the 8:15 into the city
There's a whistle up above and people pushing, people shoving
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 slavin' jobs and get your pay
If you ever get annoyed, look at me, I'm self-employed
I love to work at nothing all day (laughs)

I'll be
All: Takin' care of business
Takin' care of business
Takin' care of business
Takin' care of business
Munch: Whoo!

All: Takin' care of business
Munch: It's all right
All: Takin' care of business
Munch: It's all mine, we'll be
All: Takin' care of business
Munch: Every day
All: Takin' care of business
Munch: Every way

Take good care of my business! (laughs) Yeah...
