Professional Jealousy (Van Morrison)

Professional jealousy, can bring down a nation And personal invasion, can ruin a man Not even his family, will understand what's happening The price that he's paying, or even the pain Professional jealousy, started a rumour And then it extended, to be more abuse What started out as just, black propaganda Was one day seen to be, believed as truth They say the truth is, stranger than fiction But a lie is more, deadly than sin It can make a man very, bitter and angry When he thinks that there's someone, is going to win Professional jealousy makes other people crazy When they think you've got something that, they don't have What they don't understand is it's, just not easy To cover it all, and, stand where you stand Professional jealousy, makes no exception It can happen to anyone, at any time The only requirement is, knowing what's needed And then delivering, what's needed on time The only requirement is to, know what is needed In doing the best you know how, deliver on time The only requirement is, to know what is needed Be best at delivering the, product on time.
