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 thinking just how sharp I am
I'm an under assistant West Coast promo' man

Yeah, yeah

Well I promote groups when they come into town
Well they laugh at my toupee, they sure do put me down

Well I'm sitting here thinking just how sharp I am
I'm a necessary talent behind every rock & 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've got a (...) and a seersucker suit, yes I have
Here comes the bus
Uh-oh, I thought I had... Where's my dime? I know I've got a dime here somewhere
