The Lyrics

It takes a hurried man to make an extra buck
It takes a hurried man to make an extra buck
It takes a hurried man to make an extra buck
But too much rushing and our lives will suck

Rush to get to work and to get things done
Rush to get back home, forget to have some fun
Start again tomorrow, repeat this every day
Have no life but at least we’re getting pay

Let’s keep moving faster every single day
Let’s keep moving faster every single day
Let’s keep moving faster every single day
And watch the quality of our lives slip away

So many people in a rat race and frantic all the time
Multi-tasking, keeping busy, without reason or rhyme
Neglecting health and family, priorities are all wrong
I’ve stopped the race so I can sing this song

It takes a hurried man to make an extra buck
It takes a hurried man to make an extra buck
It takes a hurried man to make an extra buck
But too much rushing and our lives will suck

Yes, too much rushing and our lives will suck!
