And you think you've seen trouble 
Well you're lookin' at the man
Oh the world's own original hard luck story 
And a hard time losin' man

Oh sometimes skies are cloudy 
And sometimes skies are blue
And sometimes they say that you eat the bear
But sometimes the bear eats you
And sometimes I feel like I should go
Far far away and hide
'Cause I keep a waitin' for my ship to come in
And all that ever comes is the tide


Oh I saved up all my money 
I gonna buy me a flashy car
So I go downtown to see the man
And he smokin' on a big cigar 
Well he must' a thought I were Rockefeller 
Or an uptown man of wealth 
He said "Boy I got the car that's made for you
And it's cleaner than the Board of Health"
Then I got on the highway oh I feelin' fine, I hit a bump
Then I found I bought a car held together 
By wire, and a couple a' hunks of twine 


Oh Friday night, feelin' right 
I head out on the street 
Standin' in the doorway 
Was a dealer known as Pete
Well he sold me a dime of some super-fine
 Dynamite from Mexico 
I spent all night 
Just tryin' to get right 
On an ounce of Oregano
