Lyrics:

Well I’m waiting at the bus stop in downtown L.A.
Well I’m waiting at the bus stop in downtown L.A.
But I’d much rather be on a boardwalk on Broadway

Well I’m sitting here thinkin’ just how sharp I am
Well I’m sitting here thinkin’ just how sharp I am
I’m an under assistant west coast promo man

Well I promo groups when they come into town
Well I promo groups when they come into town
Well they laugh at my toupee, they’re sure to put me down

Well I’m sitting here thinking just how sharp I am
Yeah I’m sitting here thinking just how sharp I am
I’m a necessary talent behind every rock and roll band

Yeah, I’m sharp
I’m really, really sharp
I sure do earn my pay
Sitting on the beach every day, yeah
I’m real real sharp, yes I am
I got a Corvette and a seersucker suit
Yes I have

Here comes the bus, uh oh
I thought I had a dime
Where’s my dime
I know I have a dime somewhere
I’m pretty sure……..

I have two clerks
I break my ass every day
Here comes the bus
I know I have a dime somewhere
I’m so sharp
You won’t believe how sharp I am
Don’t laugh at me
