Cockamamie Business

This song is by George Harrison and appears on the compilation album Best Of Dark Horse 1976-1989 (1989).

Bust my back on the Levy, broke my strings on the BBC
Found my chops on Eel Pie Island, paid my dues at the Marquee
Slagged off by the N.M.E., lost my stash, my virginity
In this cockamamie business

Got my face on Ed Sullivan, broke my heart on the Soul Train
Introduced to Bad Company, lost cells down at Brain Drain
And before I could mend, lost the missus, missed the girlfriend
In this cockamamie business

Now we like to air condition, though the air has no ozone ring
Still they're chopping down the forest for McDonald's and the Burger King
Eating cows with such persistence doesn't offer much resistance
To this cockamamie business

There are too many things stressing out the nervous system
Girls you used to know, fellas that may have kissed 'em
Some got rabies, some got fleas, some got incurable diseases
From this cockamamie business

Now everybody's after as many points as they can get
As long as it's not them that has to pay, no one really minds the debt
Five star actors, tax inspectors, film producers and directors
With their cockamamie business (Cockamamie business)

Well, you do what you can, you can't do much more than that (No, you can't do what he just said)
Some days, you're pretty sharp, on other days you feel half dead (While you make your daily bread)
Didn't wanna be a star, wanted just to play guitar
In this cockamamie business (Cockamamie business)
Cockamamie business (Cockamamie business)
This cockamamie business (Cockamamie business)
That cockamamie business
