My promotion is coming, or perhaps it just came,
I can’t walk away from the things which I’ve gained
The company needs me.
My spouse and my car.
The club I just joined, and the lads at the bar
The deal I just made, my parents, my pet.
My mortgage and my back ache.
I can’t travel, not yet.
The summer, the winter, the sports, and my toys
I mustn’t forget the girls and the boys.
I’m trapped in this life.
I wish freedom was true.
But to give all this up
I just cannot do.
