There at the Top

There at the Top
(Difford/Tilbrook)

She’s independent
She’s a modern woman
She needs no prompting
On her should ‘n’ shouldn’t
It’s always bosses
Who wish she wouldn’t
Files in the cabinet so neatly numerical
Makes all the clients so neatly alphabetical

There for her service
Comfy red Granada
Up to the Midlands
With a taped Sinatra
Plans all the hotels
And airplane charters
Found under covers with some representative
The deal is effected but still only tentative

Shorthands a letter
Heading on the paper
Slimlines her lunchbreak
Will it ever make her
Slender and modern
So all the men will take her
Back to the mirror in the Empress Hotel
Where the businessman smiles and the object is sell

Turn of 21
She’s looking at her map
Looking at her watch
Bags on the rack
Seems like she’s there
Seems like she’s there at the top
Seems like she’s there at the top

One thought on “There at the Top

  1. One of my favourite ‘stand in front of the mirror with a hairbrush’ songs. It’s just so fabulously joyous. Great to play bass to as well!
