Song title: Car wash
Well my name is Catherine LeFevre
I work at the Astrowash on Sunset and Vine
I drop my kids at school in the morning
And I pick them up at Mary’s just ‘fore suppertime
Well I work down at the car wash
For a dollar and a dime
And mister, I hate my boss
It’s at the car wash I’m doing my time
Pick up my water bottle and my towel, sir
And I take ‘em one by one
From Mercedes to VWs
I do ‘em all and I don’t favor none
Well someday I’ll sing in a night club
I’ll get a million-dollar break
A handsome man will come here with a contract in his hand
And say “Catherine, this has all been some mistake”
