Working At The Car Wash Blues by Jim Croce
Well, I just got out of the county prison doin'
90 days for nonsupport
Tried to find me an executice position
but no matter how smooth I talk
They wouldn't listen to the fact that I was a genius
the man said we got all that we can use
Now I got them steadily deppressin', low-down mind-messin'
workin' at the carwash blues
Well, I should be sittin' in an air-conditioned
office in a swivel chair
Talkin' some trash to the secratary sayin'
(spoken) hey now mama come on over here
But still I'm stuck here rubbin' these fenders with a rag
and walkin' home in soggy old shoes
With them steadily deppressin', low-down mind-messin'
workin' at the car wash blues
You know a man of my ability
he should be smokin' on a big cigar
But till I get myself straight I guess I'll just have to wait
in my rubber suit rubbin' these cars
Well all I can do is shake my head, you might not believe that it's true
but workin' at this indoor Niagra falls is an undiscovered Howard Hughes
So baby, don't 'spect to see me with no double martini in any high-brow society news
cause I got them steadily deppressin', low-down mind-messin' workin' at the car wash blues
