The Company Way lyrics

The Company Way

MR. TWIMBLE:
When I joined this firm
As a brash young man.
Well I said to myself not brash young man.
Don't get any ideas.
Well, I stuck to that
And haven't had one in years.

FINCH:
You play it safe!

MR. TWIMBLE:
I play it the company way.
Wherever the company puts me
There I stay.

FINCH:
But what's your point of view?

MR. TWIMBLE:
I have no point of view!

FINCH:
Supposing the company thinks that...

MR. TWIMBLE:
I think so too!

FINCH:
Now, what would you say...

MR. TWIMBLE:
I wouldn't say!

FINCH:
Your face is a company face...

MR. TWIMBLE:
It smiles at executives
then goes back in place!

FINCH:
The company furniture...

MR. TWIMBLE:
:it suits me fine!

FINCH:
The company letterheader...

MR. TWIMBLE:
A Valentine!

FINCH:
Anything you're against?

MR. TWIMBLE:
Unemployment!

FINCH:
When they want brilliant thinking
from employees...

MR. TWIMBLE:
That is no concern of mine.

FINCH:
Suppose a man of genius make suggestions....

MR. TWIMBLE:
What's that genius get suggested to resign?

FINCH:
So, You play it the company way.

MR. TWIMBLE:
Oh, company policy is by me ok.

FINCH:
You'll never rise up to the top...

MR. TWIMBLE:
But there's one thing clear,
Whoever the company fires
I will still be here!

FINCH:
Ah, you certainly found a home.

MR. TWIMBLE:
It's cozy...

FINCH:
Your brain is a company brain.

MR. TWIMBLE:
The company washed it,
Now I can't complain.

FINCH:
Hey, the company magazine...

MR. TWIMBLE:
Know what style, what punch

FINCH:
The company restaurant!

MR. TWIMBLE:
Ev'ry day same lunch.
Their hattock sandwich, it's delicious.

FINCH:
I must try it!

MR. TWIMBLE:
Early in the week.

FINCH:
Do you have any hobbies?

MR. TWIMBLE:
I've a hobby, I play gin with Mr. Bratt.

FINCH:
Mr. Bratt! And do you play it nicely?

MR. TWIMBLE:

FINCH:

'Cause I play it the company way.

BOTH:

MR. TWIMBLE:

FINCH:
Oh, how can you get anywhere?

MR. TWIMBLE:
Junior have no fear.
Whoever the company fires
