G C There's a little boy out in the driveway, Basketball in hand. D Says "Daddy can we play a little one-on-one?" G You pat him on the back and say not now son, I'm a busy man. G C His sisters out on the sidewalk, Settin' up a lemonade stand. D Hey Daddy don't ya wanta' buy a glass from me. G You say maybe later can't ya see, I'm a busy man. Chorus: Em G D G You gotta go, Gotta run, Hit it hard and get it done. C Am D Everyone can see your goin' far. Em G D G You've got responsibilities, A crazy schedule that you keep. C Am And when you say that times a wastin', C D D7 G You don't know how right you are, Busy man. G C There's a women in the bedroom cryin', Sayin' I thought we had plans. D You say honey I'm sorry I'll make it up, G When the job slows down and I'm not such, A busy man. (Repeat Chorus) Refrain: D C Have you ever seen a headstone with these words, Am C D "If only I had spent more time at work". G There's a call one day from the office. C They need you down in Birmin'ham. D You say no way the weekends mine. D I've got plans with the kids and a date with my wife, G I'm a busy man. Em G D G Gotta go, Gotta run, Take a break and have some fun. C Am D Those who love you most say that you've come far. Em G D G Got some new priorities in that schedule that you keep. C Am And when you say that times a wastin', C D D7 Now you know how right you are, G G Busy man, Busy man.
