"Working At The Carwash Blues" lyrics

Working At The Carwash Blues

Well, I had just got out
From the county prison
Doing ninety days for non-support
Tried to find me
An executive position
But no matter how smooth I talked

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 depressing
Low down mind messing
Working at the carwash blues

Well, I should be sitting
In some air-conditioned
Office in a swivel chair
Talking me some trash
To the secretaries
Saying, "Hey, honey
Come on over here"

Instead I'm stuck here rubbing
These fenders with a rag
And walking home in soggy old shoes
With them steadily depressing
Low down mind messing
Working at the carwash blues

You know a man of my ability
He should be smoking on a big cigar
But till I get myself straight
I guess I'll just have to wait
In my rubber suit a rubbing these cars

Well, all I can do
Is a shake my head
Cause you might not believe
That it's true
For working 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 depressing
Low down mind messing
Working at the carwash blues

I got them steadily depressing
Low down mind messing
Working at the carwash blues
