stuck on the corner (live) lyrics – todd snider

you know that godd*mn kiss-*ss handelmann
vice president of human resources or somethin’
he stood up and made a speech about how we would
all have to work even harder now
i thought harder, now, harder than what?
i would give anything to get up and walk but of here but i’m

stuck on the corner of sanity and madness
i’m lookin them over, i can’t see a difference
makin money out of paper, makin paper out of trees
we’re makin so much money we can hardly breathe

you oughta hear the sh*t that i get from my daughter
she says that she can’t stand the sight of the car i bought her
i’d be moonlightin forever to buy a ragtop
her and her mother spend my money pretty much non-stop
they’re trying to break me for the sake of the neighborhood
they want to make everyone up and down the street
to think that we’re doing good, but i’m


i didn’t even want to study economics
my parents made me cause they said it would be practical
i can’t make my kids do a godd*mn thing i tell them to
my kid’s an unrepentant radical
he is as unimpressed by the gl*ss in my cubicle
as i am secretly impressed by his ability
to look at everything so completely irresponsibly


you know i had to throw a little back at mr. handelmann
drove home from work as mad as i’ve ever been an’ then
i moved the kid out of the driveway, you know he didn’t
he left me everything, i said, what would you know
you’re lookin at the man about to buy a kid a ragtop
i said what are you driving? a popsickle you little punk!
and now i’m
