ELEVATOR PITCH

1
I sent
A memo but it bounced right back
I found
Another in the shredder sack
I thought
You'd cut me some slack this time?

I asked
Your office for a conference call
They laughed
Said not a chance before the fall
They still get flak on the other line

I know you're up there
In your big chair
Rolling around somewhere
on the mezzanine
We seldom speak
I'm kind of meek
Just another geek down in R'n'D
If you know what I mean...

But I've got an Elevator Pitch
Give me sixty seconds
It'll all come clear
I've got an Elevator Pitch
Just a small expense
For a Big Idea

2
I made
A deal with the parking guy
I had
To catch him when he wasn't high
He taped my letter to your
Lexus quarterlight

I heard
Your PA got a little fried
About
The bagel with the note inside
It was inspired
But unreplied

I know you're up there
In the clean air
Floating around somewhere
On the mezzanine
But can we meet
In between the spreadsheets?
The future's sweet
And it's where I've been,
If you know what I mean...

'Cos I've got an Elevator Pitch
Give me sixteen seconds
It'll all come clear
I've got an Elevator Pitch
Just a small expense
For a Big Idea

So I made a slight faux-pas
That night in the bar, with the MD
But the plaster cast apart, well
He knows I know what you need
Doesn't he?

So I've got an Elevator Pitch
Give me six sweet seconds
It'll all come clear
I've got an Elevator Pitch
It's just a small expense
For a Big Idea

I've got an Elevator Pitch
Give me sixty seconds
It'll all come clear
I've got an Elevator Pitch
Just a small expense
It'll all make sense
It's just a very small expense
For a Big Idea
For a Big Idea
For a Big Idea
For a Big Idea
