lyrics

Jersey:
I guess this is it, Glen. I’m outta here. Let’s go return the cabs to the shop.


Glen:
Hey Jersey, can I confess something to you?


Jersey:
Sure.


Glen:
I have no intentions of pedicabbing after tonight.


Jersey:
That’s great Glen.


Glen:
It’s just that Antony, when I told him I lost my job, he kind of bullied me into it.


Jersey:
I could see that.


It’s my last night on a pedicab
I’m finally gonna quit this job


Oh sure it breaks your back
But you get attractive thighs
You wake up at 4 PM
Then it’s time to go back out and ride


Southern Boy:
Hey, uh, howdy.


Pirate Mike:
Argg we wanna say thank ya for standing up to the SNAKES


Southern Boy;
Uh, yea man. Yipiie kay-o kay-a


Jersey:
Where are you guys really from?


Both:
Long Island.
Jersey:
Last night on a pedicab
I’m finally gonna quit this job


I can’t say I’ll miss the pain
I never thought it would be this hard


Oh sure,
You have no life
But you get free exercise
You get home at 4 AM
Just in time to close your eyes


You know what I am gonna miss though?
The solitude.


And as I roll through the night
Ahhh
It’s just me and the sky


Antony:
Jersey my boy. So how did Glen do?


Jersey:
He did great Antony. But it was a busy night. So how’s about you me $50.


Antony:
Jersey! All I hear about is how slow it’s been tonight.


Jersey:
Last night on a pedicab
And ain’t dealing with this crap


So hand me my fifty bucks
Before I call the police and rat


Oh sure,
My boss is strange
In a sleazy kind of way
But I quit, so from today
I’ll no longer keep my dreams at bay


Jersey:
Jackleen?


Jackleen:
Would you like to ride around with me?


Jackleen:
That was really sweet of you to lose that race.


Jersey:
Thanks. You know you’re not so bad for a SNAKE.
