I Can't Wait To Get Off Work

(And See My Baby On Montgomery Avenue)

Music & Lyrics: Tom Waits.
Well I don't mind working
cause I used to be jerkin off
most of my time i the bars
I been a cabby and a stock clerk
and a soda fountain jock jerk
and a manic mechanic on cars
It's nice work it you can get it
now who the hell said it
I got money to spend on my girl
but the work never stops
and I'll be bustin my chops
working for Joe & Sal.

and I can't wait to get off work
and see my baby
she said she'd leave the porch lite
on for me
I'm disheveled I'm disdainful
I'm distracted and it's painful
but this job sweepin up here is
grainfully employing me tonight

Tom do this Tom do that
Tom, don't do that
count the cash clean the oven
dump the trash oh your lovin
is a rare and a copesetic gift
I'm a moonlight watchmanic
(sweeping up over by the cigarrete machine)

and I can't wait to get off work
and see my baby
she be waiting up with a maggacine for me
clean the bathrooms, clean um good
oh you're lovin I wish I would
come down here and sweepameoffmyfeet
this broom'll have to be my baby
if I hurry I just might
get off before the dawns early light
