company way
(feat. rob bartlett)

[finch:]
mr. twimble

[mr. twimble:]
yes?

[finch:]
you’ve been with this company a long time, haven’t you?

[mr. twimble:]
a long, long time. just last month i became a quarter of a century man

[finch:]
aww, that’s beautiful! gee, a quarter of a century!

[mr. twimble:]
a quarter of a century!

[finch:]
and how long have you been in the mailroom?

[mr. twimble:]
25 years. yep! it takes a combination of skill, diplomacy and bold caution

when i joined this firm
as a brash young man
well i said to myself now brash young man
don’t get any ideas, well, i stuck to that
and haven’t had one in years.

[finch:]
ah, you play it safe

[mr. twimble:]
i play it the company way.
wherever the company puts me
there i’ll stay.

[finch:]
but what’s your point of view?

[mr. twimble:]
i have no point of view!

[finch:]
supposing the company thinks

[mr. twimble:]
i think so too!

[finch:]
now, what would you say if they put you-

[mr. twimble:]
i wouldn’t say!

[finch:]
you’re facing the company face

[mr. twimble:]
it smiles at executives
then goes back in place!

[finch:]
the company furniture…

[mr. twimble:]
oh, it suits me fine!

[finch:]
the company letterhead…

[mr. twimble:]
a valentine!

[finch:]
is there 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:]
oh, 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:]
the company magazine…

[mr. twimble:]
know what style, what punch

[finch:]
the company restaurant

[mr. twimble:]
every day same lunch.
their hattock sandwich, it’s delicious.

[finch:]

[mr. twimble:]

[finch:]

[mr. twimble:]

[finch:]
and do you play it nicely?

[mr. twimble:]

[finch:]

[mr. twimble:]

[finch:]

[mr. twimble:]
