Track Name: Commercial Suicide Man
COMMERCIAL SUICIDE MAN

I made you a formal offer
I said I’ll do what I can
I gave you this use of an office
So you can establish your brand


And to save you from getting the brush off

I put you on the road in a van
But to make people buy your records boy?
I don’t know who you think I am

- What we gonna do about it Robert?
- What we gonna do about it Robert?
- What we gonna do about it Robert?

Well I might rigmarole for the babies
And I might ‘Coal Not Dole’ now and then
But I won’t score a goal with the ladies
And I won’t pigeonhole with the men



Ah, but if we make it come across natural
The press will call it a scam
To make it sell for are we not
A pair of also-rans?



- What we gonna do about it Victor?
- What is the gnu about it Victor?
- Can you see the clue within the picture?



Once upon a time ‘twas a pleasure
Could never be a thing that’d hurt
But as the days roll by and more people die

It gets a little rough in the dirt

Well my career is on an upward curve now
Decades overdue
So why do I struggle to find a way
To separate the blues from you?



- What’s there to misconstrue about it Robert?

- What we gonna do about it Robert?

- You gotta love what you’re doing
Love, love, love
- You gotta love what you’re doing
Love what you doing or you don’t.
