Lyrics

My head’s on the block with the company
Nothing I can do 'bout that
I tried to be good, did the best that I could
Guess I wasn’t that hot
My car was making a funny sound
But it’s not funny at all
Looked under the hood but don’t look good
Maybe time for recall
The car won’t start, got bills to pay
Got no money, the cat’s gone astray
No time to get back home before it starts to rain
But who’s complaining?
The world’s on its side, said the man
And he wasn’t complaining
Just pointing it out like a good boy scout
No judge and no jury could blame him
I’m watching it all on a TV screen
With a beer and a snack
Famines and wars and an ozone with flaws
Well, I can’t do much about that
The car won’t start, I missed the train
The rent’s been doubled, the cat’s gone again
Every day as my mother would say
The world has gone insane
But who’s complaining?
Not me
The car won’t start, got bills to pay
Got no money, the cat’s gone astray
The car won’t start, I missed the train
The rent’s been doubled, the cat’s gone again
The car won’t start
