It not her

It not her 

Corporate life it not me
Not me, explicitly
I asked to be
Full of punctuality
I hear it say: be orderly.

Corporate life it not me
My tie hang crookedly
Skirt rise over my knee
Spill coffee inelegantly
I be all informality.

Rules and numbers go exponentially
Be wingtips far as I can see
(Them shoes must cost a fee.)
I got no vendibility
I be disorderly
Ruin they multinationality
Corporate life it not me.

I be barter, trade, all haggledy
No timepiece, no reveille
Run outside, I vivacity
It might be he, might be she
But corporate life, naw, it not be me.
