car wash lyrics – bruce springsteen

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 vw’s
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”

/ bruce springsteen lyrics
