Roger – King Of The Road lyrics

A trailer for sale or rent
Rooms to let fifty cents
No phone, no pool, no pets
I got no cigarettes

About two hours of pushin' broom
Buys a three by twelve four bed room
I'm a man of means, by no means
King of the road

A third boxcar, a midnight train
Destination Bangor, Maine
Old worn out suite and shoes
I don't pay no union dues

I smoke old stogies that I have found
Short, but not too big around
I'm a man of means, by no means
King of the road

I know every engineer on every train
All of the children and all of their names
And every handout in every town
And every lock that ain't locked when no one's around

They sing, trailers for sale or rent
Rooms to let, fifty cents
No phone, no pool, no pets
I ain't got no cigarettes

About two hours of pushin' broom
Buys an eight by twelve four bed room
I'm a man of means, by no means
King of the road

Trailer for sale or rent
Rooms to let, fifty cents
No phone, no pool, no pets
I ain't got no cigarettes

About two hours of pushin' broom
Buys a three bed room, four bed room
I'm a man of means, by no means
King of the road
