Gentleman of leisure Lyrics by Jimmy Buffett 



Gentleman of leisure by Jimmy Buffett


I want a job that's not too demandin'
Where you do, a lot of standin'
Don't want to be an elevator operator
No way a salesman, no way a waiter
Cause I'm a gentleman,
A gentleman of leisure

I'm a gentleman
A gentleman of leisure
Let me take my time
Betcha I can please ya
I'm a gentleman
A gentleman of leisure

Classified ads don't look too appealin'
I don't know but I've got this feelin'
Might take awhile to find a position
With a pretty secretary and some time to go fishin'
I'm a gentleman
A gentleman of leisure

40 hour week, could ya make it 30?
No heavy liftin', I get myself dirty
Beautiful office, 37th floor
Tiles on the roof and sign up on the door that says,
Gentleman of leisure

(You understand why I like this song? It fits the twilight of my career.)

Hey! I look nice in a clean white collar
Take home pay, oh, say a million dollars
I keep lookin', I'll never stay down
Cause somebody somewhere is lookin' for a guy
Who's a gentleman, a gentleman of leisure

I'm a gentleman, a gentleman of leisure
Set me in the sun
Baby, I will please ya
Cause I'm a gentleman, a gentleman of leisure
I'm a gentleman, a gentleman of leisure
