Getting Ahead (Kevin Becker) 1. Catch this rising star his name is Bob He's rising through the ranks with each new job And now he's asking for advice Saying he'll pay any price An obsession for getting ahead 2. Well he says he'll work that overtime and more And generate reports "that tell the score" He says he wants to make the big bucks Well then he'd better learn to duck A pre-requisite for getting ahead 3. Well ok, he says, promote me I'm no fool He wants that house, that car, that swimming pool But the business cannot wait And he'll die at fifty-eight An illusion called getting ahead 4. Well I saved one last thought here for the end Bob says he loves his family and his friends But he's always running late The wife and the kids can wait Forever, it's a race to get ahead Forever, it's a race to get ahead copyright Kevin Becker BL
