lyrics

backward forward someone tries to buy your pride
in the back of a limousine, how you gonna pay for that ride
keeping up with Mr. Jones
his baby is a genius and he bought a new home
gotta work from 9 to 5
don't mind the money and I'm glad I'm alive
But don't say this to her in front of him
Are you gonna please yourself?
or are you gonna please somebody else?
Please yourself

window's open, might as well bet your life
on a yacht in the Caribbean, whatcha gonna tell your wife?
think you're smart like Sherlock Holmes
nobody's on your side and you gotta fight alone
you can always count on me
to watch your back and pretend I don't see
but don't say this to her in front of him
are you gonna please yourself?
or are you gonna please somebody else?
please yourself

instant judgment, how you gonna change my mind
boss don't like you, hit you from behind
hide the money, hide the books,
hide your feelings, hide the crooks,
don't smile when I say hi,
don't say sorry when you're ready to die
but don't say this to her in front of him
are you gonna please yourself?
or are you gonna please somebody else?
please yourself
