The Lyrics

(This is for some of those business people that, despite their so-called business savvy, manage to mess up their client's business affairs. I thought they were supposed to be extra smart?)
Those people got null reasons
Those people got dull reasons
Those people got null reasons
To give.

They got little minds
Little wise.
They make me frown
Under their big guise
Think they've little noses
That they put in the air
Put on their platform shows
Cover nasty little feats.

Well, don't want no bus'ness people
Don't want bus'ness people
Don't want bus'ness people
To hear.

Those people are all to blame
Not you and I
(but those fools they try)
Listen, you brother
Think I want to know why
(You can't add one and one.)

Those people got null reasons
Those people got dull reasons
Those people got null reasons
Write of.

Believe it or not I'm DKTOS here, but I'll try to find a copy of TOS in the next day or two and give it a listen.
