Slice of Lime-Business Time

Flight of the Conchords is a hilarious duo from New Zealand. The ever lovely Logo introduced me to them via this song "Business Time" quite a while ago.

Aww Yeah
Girl, tonight we're gonna make love
You know how I know?
Because it's Wednesday
And Wednesday night is the night that we usually make love
Monday night is my night to cook
Tuesday night we go and visit your mother
But Wednesday we make sweet weekly love

That's when everything is just right
There's nothing good on tv

You haven't had your after work social sports team practice
So you are not too tired
Oh, boy, it's all on
You lean in and whisper something sexy in my ear like,
"I might go to bed now. I've got work in the morning."
I know what you're trying to say girl.
You're trying to say "Aww, yeah. It's business time. It's business time.”

It’s business
It’s business time
I know what you’re trying to say
You're trying to say it's time for business,
it's business time, oooh
It's business
It's business time
Aww ohooowoah yeah

Then in the bathroom brushing our teeth
That's all part of the foreplay; i love foreplay
Then you sort out the recycling
That isn't part of the foreplay process,
but it is still very important

Next thing you know we're in the bedroom
You're wearin' that baggy old ugly T-shirt you got from your work several years ago
Mmmm, you know the one, baby
With the cola stain

I remove my clothes
Very very clumsily
Tripping sensually over my pants.

Now I'm naked
Except for my socks
And you know when I'm down to just my socks
what time it is

It's business
It's business time
When I'm down to my socks it's time for business
That's why they're called business socks, oooh
It’s business
It’s business time
Oooh, hoo hoo hoo oooh yeah, yeah

Making love
Making love for
Making love for two
Making love for two minutes
When it's with me girl you only need two minutes,
because I'm so intense

You whisper something sexy like, "Is that it?"
I know what you’re trying to say, girl
You're trying to say, "Aww yeah, that's it"
And then you tell me you want some more
Well, uh... I'm not surprised
But I'm quite sleepy

It's business
It's business time
Business hours are over, baby
It's business
It's business time

This doesn't quite do justice to the humor so here's the video for your enjoyment. Now let's get down to business!

Great photos and a funny as hell song, excellent combo, Lime. :D

Phain said...

but they forgot the line that goes, "and I didn't brush my teeth just for you cause I know you like that musty breath."

and we could also add the "I farted under the covers" chorus as well.

SignGurl said...

OMG! What a hilarious post! This reminds me of my life.

The singer in the video is pretty hot and so are you!

M said...

Thanks for the Thursday laugh!(-:

The look on your face in the second photo is priceless.

Okay, when I first started reading I had NO idea where you were going with it... A splendid video which should be filed under the 'True Life' section.

Have you seen this one?

the conchords are freakin great.

NYD said...

Was sneakin around yer blog whi9le at work so I couldn't comment.

I really liked this. Finally being able to watch the video put the icing on the cake.

I really like the "Don't bother me now, I'm reading" expression on your face.

P.S. I could use a Hughs weekend right about now. I got the monkey off my back, but had to pay a price most dear to do it.

I will go drink now.

THis is my favorite part for some reason or 'nother....

Making love for two
Making love for two minutes

OMG I Love how the guitar guy jumps out from behind the wall and comes into the bedroom and starts playing!

"I turn it all into a sexy dance..."

Bunny said...

LOL!!!! I love how your pictures go so well with it too - wonderful!

Beach Bum said...

Okay, the only difference from the video and my life is that during my two minutes my wife fell asleep thirty seconds into business time.

Fred said...

I've never seen the video - hilarious!

barman said...

OK, I love both versions for different reasons. So tell me, does the guitar man come barging into your bedroom like in the video. That is just ride.

Thank you, I have never seen that. That was really funny.
