The Cost Of Doing Business

This song is by Pure Prairie League and appears on the album All In Good Time... (2006).

(Craig Fuller/Curtis Wright)

You say you're sick and tired of what you have to do
To just keep pace these days, and all the hoops you have to jump through
They make you crazy, and drag you down
As you work to keep your good name in this town

Well it's time you said your goodbyes to the innocence of youth
And opened up your heart to the cold, cold truth

That's just the cost of doing business, forget that stuff about rags to riches
It's never black or white, only shades of grey
You better believe nobody needs you, be ready to bite the hand that feeds you
As you're choking on the words you swore you'd never say
That's just the cost of doing business these days

You still recall a time when right and wrong
Were so easily defined, no one was leading you on
And it's sad to see how the rules have changed
To where you have to lose yourself if you want to play the game

That's just the cost of doing business, forget that stuff about rags to riches
It's never black or white, only shades of grey
You better believe nobody needs you, be ready to bite the hand that feeds you
As you're choking on the words you swore you'd never say
That's just the cost of doing business these days

Sometimes it gets hard to gauge the cost of living
When what you've got ain't equal to what you're giving

But that's just the cost of doing business, forget that stuff about rags to riches
It's never black or white, only shades of grey
You better believe nobody needs you, be ready to bite the hand that feeds you
As you're choking on the words you swore you'd never say
That's just the cost of doing business these days
That's just the cost of doing business, the cost of doing business,
The cost of doing business these days
