The loneliness of the banking chief executive

VERSE
Gm
Sometimes you wonder
Cm
Why you work so hard
Gm
Leading the way
Cm
It's tough at the top

And you're publicly hated
A banker's a dirty word
You're not appreciated
All the things that you've heard

BRIDGE
D#
But you're there at your lowest
F
When you feel the love

CHORUS
Bf
And you get a bonus
F
A million or two
D#
After all that you've done
Bf
It's the least they could do

Now you've got your bonus
And it's so bloody big
There's your reward
For all that you did

VERSE
They should know you're not greedy
You could have had so much more
Money isn't everything
You've turned it down before

And it's getting too much
Enough is enough
You're taking retirement
The times are too rough

BRIDGE

CHORUS (pay-off)

VERSE
Then you're sitting at home
Alone and depressed
Filled with self-doubt
And heaped with regret

If you'd lived your life differently
A different choice at the start
Could have done something
More with your life

BRIDGE

CHORUS (pension)
