bright future in sales lyrics – fountains of wayne

sleepin’ on a planter at the port authority
waitin’ for my bus to come
seven scotch-and-sodas at the office party
now i don’t remember where i’m from

i think i had a black wallet
in my back pocket
with a bus ticket
and a picture of my baby inside
and if i make it home alive

i’m gonna get my sh*t together (together)
cause i can’t live like this forever (forever)
you know i’ve come too far
and i don’t wanna fail
i got a new computer
and a bright future in sales
yeah yeah (yeah yeah)
a bright future in sales
yeah yeah (yeah yeah) yeah yeah

headin’ for the airport on a misty morning
gonna catch a flight to baltimore
try to kill an hour with a whiskey sour
if there’s time i might have just one more

i gotta do some quick readin’
for the big meetin’
but my head is spinnin’
and i can’t quite open my eyes
as long as i don’t have to drive

i’m gonna get my sh*t together (together)
cause i can’t live like this forever (forever)
you know i’ve come too far
and i don’t wanna fail
i got a new computer and a
bright future in sales
yeah yeah (yeah yeah)
a bright future in sales
yeah yeah (yeah yeah)
a bright future in sales
yeah yeah (yeah yeah)
a bright future in sales
yeah yeah (yeah yeah) yeah yeah

i had a line on a brand new account
but now i can’t seem to find
where i wrote that number down
i try to focus, i’m starin’ at the screen
pretendin’ like i know
what all these little flashin’ lights mean

oh yeah

i gotta do some quick readin’
for the big meetin’
but my head is spinnin’
and i can’t quite open my eyes

i gotta get my sh*t together (together)
cause i can’t live like this forever (forever)
you know i’ve come too far and i don’t wanna fail
i got a new computer
and a bright future in sales
yeah yeah (yeah yeah)
a bright future in sales
yeah yeah (yeah yeah)
a bright future in sales
yeah yeah (yeah yeah)
a bright future in sales
yeah yeah (yeah yeah) yeah yeah
