Opposites Attract

A Sourcing and Procurement Love Story.

[S] I’m M.C. Doc on the rap so mic it
[S] Here’s a little story and you’re sure to like it
[S] Swift and sly and I’m playing it cool
[S] With Procurement, ’cause buyers rule!

[S] Oh it seems we never ever agree
[S] You like catalogs
[S] And I like RFPs
[S] I take things serious
[S] And you take ‘em light
[S] I analyze daily
[P] And I buy when I like

[P] Back office sayin’
[P] We ain’t gonna last
[P] Cuz I move slowly
[S] Catalogs move fast

[S] I like it quiet
[P] And I love it loud
[B] But when we get together
[B] We both can stand proud

[Chorus:]
[S] I take 2 steps forward
[P] I take 2 steps back
[B] We come together
[B] Cuz opposites attract
[S] And you know — it ain’t fiction
[P] Just a natural fact
[B] We come together
[B] Cuz opposites attract

[P] Who’d a thought we could be partners
[P] I place the orders
[S] And I cut the contracts

[S] I like it neat
[P] And I make a mess
[P] I take it easy
[S] But I get obsessed
[S] I’ve got the budget
[P] And I’m always broke
[P] I don’t like strategy
[S] My eyes on the prize

[B] Things in common
[B] Just ain’t a one
[B] But when we’re working in-sync
[B] It’s nothin’ but black ink

[S] I take 2 steps forward
[P] I take 2 steps back
[B] We come together
[B] Cuz opposites attract
[S] And you know–it ain’t fiction
[P] Just a natural fact
[B] We come together
[B] Cuz opposites attract

[Repeat Chorus]

[B] Oh ain’t it somethin’
[B] How we lasted this long
[B] Both of us
[B] Provin’ everyone wrong
[B] Don’t think we’ll ever
[B] Get our differences patched
[B] Don’t really matter
[B] Cuz we’re perfectly matched

[Repeat Chorus Twice]

[B] Nothing in common, only trust
[P] I’m like a minus …
[S] I’m like a plus
[S] One saving up,
[P] One spending down
[B] But together we’re on common ground

[P] When things go wrong we make corrections
[S] To keep things moving in the right direction
[B] Try to fight it but we’re telling you Jack
[B] Its true — this — Opposites Attract!

… but the unanswered question is, should they?
