Strictly Business (2)

Took a business (?) trip to the French Sudan
Hoping while there to acquire a tan.
My Girl Friday came along to take a note
When my wife found out, that was all she wrote
And the stuff really hit the fan.

The old gal's head was a'brewing
Thought she knew exactly what we were doing.
I said, "Calm all of your fears
And have a coupla more beers
No use doing a lot of stewing."

So we went on our merry way
And really enjoyed our stay
And got a nice tan by the bay.
Don't know just why my wife doesn't trust me
And always wants to bust me
As it was business all the way.
(Monkey, that is)

Guess she found out my ploy
And wanted to be a killjoy
But I'm one step ahead
And I'm making my bed
Got a trip all planned to Hanoi.

It's just like a vacation
When I travel (on business) to each nation.
I'm such a work horse
I need my steno, of course
In case I have to give some dictation.
