My wife came home a while back and was telling me about some of the things going on down at her work.
This song came out of all that.

Leave That Ego At The Door is a saying that's been around a while.
I decided to use that as part of the hook for this song.

Lyrics
Leave That Ego At The Door.
Tim Lawrence (2012)

Verse:
Well down at work the other day
my boss stood up to have his say
he said I'm gonna tell youall just what I think
there's allot a people workin' here
with their head stuck up their rear
who act like their you know what don't stink
yeah They're never wrong always right
never listen to the other side
can't get past their own point of view
well this is gonna stop right now
and I'm gonna tell ya how
yeah this is what you're gonna do

Chorus:
leave that ego at the door when you walk in
and why you're at it lose that cocky grin
'cause I know who you are, and where you've been
so leave that ego at the door when you walk in

Verse:
Yeah well he ain't workin' here no more
they took his name from this office door
and cut his final check
then they promoted me,
yeah brand-new job and salary
yep you guest it, sittin' behind his desk
and they told me

Chorus:
leave that ego at the door when you walk in
and hey why you're at it lose that cocky grin
'cause we know who you are, and where you've been
so leave that ego at the door when you walk in

Brent solo:

Bridge:
Well the other day I stopped off for a Big Mac
and at the window my old boss asked
would you like fries with that

Chorus:
leave that ego at the door when you walk in
and why you're at it lose that cocky grin
'cause I know who you are, and where you've been
so leave that ego at the door when you walk in

Yeah 'cause you know who you are, and where you've been
so leave that ego at the door when you walk in

Tim,

What a great fun song.
The story is so true, certainly hope the promotion
part was.

Loved the way you put Brent right in the middle of it
all.

Thanks for you hard work and sharing with us!

Thank you much for listening and commenting Frank.

Actually my wife did get a promotion recently.
Fortunately it wasn't the result of someone getting the boot.

Tim, another keeper, amigo.

That little word ego, has ruined more good bands then, perhaps, all else. It should be on the "Controlled Substance" list, but it would probably be available Over The Counter (OTC) through Canadian pharmacies. (Snickering)

Tim,

Yeah, That is a great song! The lyrics fit perfectly with the music and have a great message. Agree that Brent was placed right in there. Great job.
