Jim Croce – Car Wash lyrics

oooo... you might not ever get rich
but tell you it's better digging a ditch
there aint no telling who you might meet
a moviestar or maybe even an Indian Cheif

working at the carwash
working at the carwash yeeh
come on and sing it with me
sing it with the feeling now
carwash yeah

come some of the work gets kind of hard
this aint no place to be if you planned on being a star
let me tell you it's always cool
and the boss dont mind somethimes if you act a fool

At the carwash wooh
talking about the carwash yeah
come on y'all and sing it for me
car wash woh
car wash yeah

work and work
well those cars never seem to stop coming
work, and work
keep those waggons and machines coming
work and work my fingers to the bone
work and work
keep up, i can't wait till it's time to go home

hey, get your car washed today
be in our band, you don't have to pay
come on and give us a play.
get it washed right away

At the carwash
talking about the carwash yeah
come on y'all and sing it for me
car wash woh
car wash yeah

those cars never seem to stop coming
keeps those rags and machines coming
let me tell you it's always cool,
and the boss don't mind sometimes if you, act the fool
