Workin' At The Car Wash Blues ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Lyrics/Music: Jim Croce
Well, I had just got out from the county prison Doin' ninety days for non-support Tried to find me an executive position But no matter how smooth I talked He wouldn't listen to the fact that I was a genius The man says, "We got all that we can use" Now I got them steadily depressin', low down mind messin' Workin' at the car wash blues
Well, I should be sittin' in an air conditioned office in a swivel chair Talkin' some trash to the secretary Sayin', "Hey, now mama, come on over here" Instead, I'm stuck here rubbin' these fenders with a rag And walkin' home in soggy old shoes With them steadily depressin', 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 a-rubbin' these cars
Well, all I can do is to shake my head And you might not believe that it's true For workin' at this end of Niagara Falls Is an undiscovered Howard Hughes So baby, don't expect to see me With no double martini in any high-brow society news Cause I got them steadily depressin', low down mind messin' Workin' at the car wash blues
Yeah I got them steadily depressin', low down mind messin' Workin' at the car wash blues
