Lyrics

The Man With No Soul (Words and music by Alan Gillis)


Verse 1
Up in the morning
Every day's the same
Black coffee - no sleep again
Worries preying on my mind
Too many problems
Not enough time

Chorus
When you're working for the man who's got no soul
He must have a heart but his blood runs cold
He gets his way - he rules by fear
You've got to sell that thing if you want a career
When you're working for the man who's got no soul
His heart is beating but his blood runs cold
Working for the man
The man with no soul

Verse 2
You've got to sell, sell, sell
Sell it all
And if you're doing all right - you've got to do more
Be like him, another clone
Think for yourself
And you'll be gone, gone, gone

Repeat chorus

Bridge
Excuse me sir I've got something you need
It's the best of its kind - take a leaflet to read
I'm to sell three a day if I hope to succeed
Help me please

Interlude (1/2 chorus)
I played the game - took the gold
I reached the top. Now I'm in control
And they're working for the man
Now I'm the man with no soul

Working for the man who's got no soul
When you're working for the man who's got no soul
The man with no soul
