Lyrics

Men with ties, men with ties

Rule from offices in the skies

Bottom lines

And dollar signs in their eyes

Men with ties, men with ties

Big white mouths telling little white lies

But it’s good for business

Especially his mess, so he justifies

 

It’s the attire

That they require at the top

But you may find

They’re the ties that bind

 

Men with ties, men with ties

Making deals they deem wise

Running guns

From Washington in disguise

Men with ties, men with ties

Take the stand with alibis

Just last fall

He can not recall or just denies

 

(Chorus)

 

In this club for the well-dressed male

We’re never sure what is said

Behind these men there’s a paper-trail

That they’re trying very hard to shred

 

Men with ties, men with ties

Often fall, but again rise

For lecture tours

And talk-show boors to advertise

Men with ties, men with ties

Trying hard to revise

What we thought

Should have brought about their demise

 

(Chorus)
