Words & music by Stan Schaffer.


COMPANY'S COMING - words & music by Stan Schaffer
Sitting, listening, thinking everything was right on time
Then I reflected along with the mirror
Riddle me this, Mr. Williams -- bear in mind my hopes and dreams
Will the decisions arrive in their own time?

And can you change your life forever?
While my financial status takes it's own
Don't get in it's way, you'll only get hurt
Stay out of the way, you'll surely get hurt

My home burned down last week
I lost my job; my girlfriend split
Should I just spit in the wind and begin cessation now?
"Now, don't throw in the towel," he told me, stirring peace of mind
"You're not the kind to leave something unfinished" (finish what you start)

"And try to change your life forever; feeling, knowing what you do is right
You might find yourself succeeding, bringing your abilities to light
Stand up for your rights; you're not yourself down
You'll be alright, don't let yourself down."

Sitting, listening, thinking everything was right on time
Then you reminded me not to be so complacent
You helped me out, Mr Williams; I owe you the world and more
Someday I'll even the score with my future fortune

By then I'll have changed my life forever
Feeling, knowing what I do is right
Well, I might find myself succeeding ... following the light
Stand up for my rights; I'm not myself down
Well, I'll be alright, and I won't let myself down
Down ...
