Interstate 10 - Blues On A C Harp

hello sir
is this seat free
i'd like to tell you something
something 'bout me
i'm an expert in the martial arts
i break bricks with my body parts
I'm an educated man, a real scholar
ninth grade and never went to college
I'm a dedicated devotee of lao tse
you know who that is? well i bet that you do
I'm the greatest lover you've never known
it's through choice that i live alone
i am rich, i have a house in santa barbara
i have two daughters and they're both called clara
I'm a jewel thief, I'm an astronaut
i had a pocket full of rubies until i got caught
I'm a lawyer so i beat that rap
i look good in a suit and i talk alit of crap
I'm a convict, i've done time
in a jail in new mexico, i forget the crime
I'm a poet and I'd put it all down
but fact and fiction keep swimming around
I'm a fish, a golden carp
i like to play the blues on a c harp

I'm a drunk and I'm a philosopher
if you want a c harp, just make me an offer
I'm a gentleman of leisure. i have all day
to sit on a bench and talk my balls away
i see you are leaving, you have things to do
oh to be a busy busy person like you
you must be somebody, someone important
like a doctor or a nurse or a hotel porter
a salesman or a judge, a gardener or a gutterpunk
or maybe like me you're just a drunk
my mind is in pieces and the pieces are sharp
i like to play the blues on a c harp

I'm talking to myself and I'm not making sense
but anyone who does is making a pretense
I'm a clairvoyant, I'm a card sharp
I'm a drunk playing the blues on a c harp
hello sir
is this seat free
I'd like to tell you something
something 'bout me
hello sir
i see this seat is free
I'd like to tell you something 'bout me
