NO VACANCY

I'm livin' in a house on the other side of town
They're makin' a highway so they're rippin' my buildin' down
I gotta find a place, within a week
Or else I'll be sleepin' out on the street
Woe is me, I'm lookin' for a vacancy

All day long I'm walkin' 'round (no vacancy)
Walkin' up and walkin' down (no vacancy)
I've been searchin' 'round the town (no vacancy)
No apartment to be found (no vacancy)
On my dishwasher's pay (can't find a place to stay)

I found myself a place but the rent sure is a crime
It's a cold water flat that was built in Lincoln's time
The paint is peelin' right off of the wall
Good golly, the bathroom is in the hall
Woe is me, I'm lookin' for a vacancy

I could budget myself, scrimp and save to get along
But it ain't no fun givin' up wine, women and song
So I'll have a roof up above my head
But under those conditions I would rather be dead
Woe is me, I'm lookin' for a vacancy

All day long I'm walkin' 'round (no vacancy)
Walkin' up and walkin' down (no vacancy)
I've been searchin' 'round the town (no vacancy)
No apartment to be found (no vacancy)
On my dishwasher's pay (can't find a place to stay)

All day long I'm walkin' 'round (no vacancy)
Oh, All day long I'm walkin' 'round (no vacancy)
All day long I'm walkin' 'round (no vacancy)
All day long I'm walkin' 'round (no vacancy)
All day long I'm walkin' 'round (no vacancy)
