Looking Out for No. 1
Bachman-Turner Overdrive Lyrics


Every day is an endless train
You've got to ride it to the end of the line
Be a troubleshooter
Blow the bad luck away
And you will make it to your station on time

And you'll find out every trick in the book
That there's only one way to get things done
You'll find out the only way to the top
Is looking out for number one
I mean you
Keep looking out for number one

Every night is a different game
We gotta work for our fortune and fame
Success is a ladder take a step at a time
And the people will remember your name

Yes I found out all the tricks of the trade
And that there's only one way
That you're gonna get things done
I found out the only way to the top
Is looking out for number one
And that's me
I'm looking out for number one

Every day is an endless train
But I ride it to the end of the line
I'm a real troubleshooter
And I blow it away
Know what's gonna get me mine

I found out every trick in the book
And that there's only one way to get things done
I found out the only way to the top
Is looking out for number one
I mean you
Keep looking out for number one
And that's us
Keep looking out for number one
That's me
I'm looking out for number one

This is so sweet, Randy Bachman is a class act. This sounds a bit like Steely Dan meets Pat Metheny. I love jazz, and this hits on all cylinders..Tj Struska

This song is a humble, understated little masterpiece, Turned me on to Bossa Nova as a young guy and it got played on jazz radio in the Boston area quite often. Just brilliant... and they were a GREAT live band as well.

i disagree: i don't hear humility, i hear generosity: to condescend this lo, just in order that a few of us may yet still get a clue, at this late hour, so to speak: jazz ain't about humility, or so-called charity or so-called kindness, it's about freedom, man! freedom to play what you want, or play for whom you want, and that's by agreement, not entitlement or so-called equity: frack-all-that, man: there's a reason, we have the idea of freedom, and why certain types, don't like that!
