Eric Stewart - Do The Books lyrics

Stewart

Louise and Morse I am so happy for you,
I really got the wobbles when your story blew.
I'm so delighted and it's so marvellous,
You really kept your heads and now you can keep your house.
I can't believe what those mothers tried to do,
They were liquidating the heart and soul out of you,
But your man ain't blind and he said 'I've seen the light',
Batten down the hatches boys we're in for a fight'. Oooh.

Do the books, um um um, do the books.
I don't care how long it takes you man
You've gotta make 'em look good.
Do the books, watch your back now, do the books,
I don't care how long it takes you man, you've gotta make 'em cook.

Our Mister Brown he's got a lovely house,
But it ain't kosher man and we know how.
Lying, wheeling, dealing, stealing, what a creep,
He's flying Concorde man and that ain't cheap.
This mother froze up when he took the stand,
Creative accounting's getting way out of hand.
I pray to God we've seen the last of him,
But these creatures always find a way out of the bin.

Do the books, um um um, do the books.
I don't care how long it takes you man
You've gotta make 'em look good.
Do the books, watch your back now, do the books,
I don't care how long it takes you man, you've gotta make 'em cook.

Seize 'em Henry, dig in and bite, we've gotta give 'em
The fright of their lives.
Seize 'em Henry, the people want blood,
We've got to clean up the neighbourhood.

These pillars of wisdom stand on feet of clay,
They'll rob you blind if you dare to look the other way.
You'd better believe they're playing a dirty game,
But you found 'em out man, they're gonna take the blame.
The court is buzzing when the judge gets tough,
She said it's dreadful, man, enough is enough.
They scream and holler when the jury say
We find you guilty man and you're gonna pay.

Do the books, um um um, do the books.
I don't care how long it takes you man
You've gotta make 'em look good.
Do the books, watch your back now, do the books,
I don't care how long it takes you man, you've gotta make 'em cook.

Do the books, do the books, do the books, do the books
Do the books, do the books, do the books, do the books
Do the books, do the books, do the books, do the books
Do the books, do the books, do the books, do the books
Do the books, do the books, do the books, do the books
