There's a quarter of a man in the market with a quarter of a car so it's easy to park it
He gets to the counter he pays what he can but he only pays a quarter
He's a quarter of a man

Now this quarter of a man he got fired, the next damn day he got hired
The only thing wrong with this plan is he only makes a quarter
He's a quarter of man

Every day he's on the street, too few quarters to live or to eat
He's so little the people all stare but he only pays a quarter fare

Now this quarter of a man's on vacation but he still gets his ration
He gets to the market he saves what he can but he only saves a quarter
He's a quarter of a man

Every day he's on the streets too few quarters to live or to eat
He's so little the people all to stare but he only pays a quarter fare
Now

There's a quarter of a man in the market with a quarter of a car so it's easy to park it
He gets to the market he saves what he can but he only saves a quarter
He's a quarter of a man
