I Can't Wait to Get Off Work (And See My Baby on Montgomery Avenue) - Tom Waits

    Well I don't mind working
    cause I used to be jerkin off
    most of my time in the bars
    I been a cabbie and a stock clerk
    and a soda fountain jock jerk
    and a manic mechanic on cars
    It's nice work if you can get it
    now who the hell said it
    I got money to spend on my gal
    but the work never stops
    and I'll be busting my chops
    working for Joe and 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
    and I'm distracted and it's painful
    but this job sweeping up here is
    is gainfully 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 copasetic gift
    and I'm a moonlight watchmanic
    it's hard to be romantic
    (sweeping up over by the
    cigarette machine
    sweeping up over by the cigarette machine...)

    I can't wait to get off work
    and see my baby
    she'll be waiting up with a magazine for me
    clean the bathrooms, clean um good
    oh your lovin I wish you 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.
