lyrics

Jersey: Alright Glen, I think I need a rest, let’s get on the end of this line


So, what happened to you,
You refused to take a drug test?


Glen:
Yea, not my finest hour


I was doing HVAC for this company,
All of a sudden they popped a drug test on me
And I was outta there
What about you?


Jersey: I’m a high school teacher
I do this on the weekends
Cause I ain’t got no friends
(Spoken:)
But don’t feel bad for me


(Sung:)
I’ve been here living in Austin
For a couple years now
I followed the trend


We’ve all got a story to tell
So what’s yours?


The only requirement to ride
Is you’ve gotta be interesting
Yea you gotta keep it interesting


People expect us to be one of a kind
Your narrative should be riveting
Yea you gotta keep it interesting


Yea riding a pedicab isn’t for the faint at heart
You gotta have tattoos a beard and face art
Take it from us we’ve been down that road
We’re from every city, state and zip code


Glen:
Wow, I never thought of myself as an interesting guy


Jersey:
Well, dig deep.
Or just make shit up.
Like this guy.


Pedicabber:
I come from New Orleans
I used play the trumpet
Here’s my tattoo to prove it
And people eat it up with a spoon




Glen:
I don’t think I could do that
Pretend to be someone
Just for the tips


I’m just an unemployed HVAC
I’m not ashamed of that
I just smoke weed


Jersey:
I was worried that you wouldn’t fit in
Until you said “weed”


The only requirement to ride
Is you’ve gotta be interesting
Yea you gotta keep it interesting


People expect us to be one of a kind
Your narrative should be riveting
Yea you gotta keep it interesting


Yea riding a pedicab isn’t for the faint at heart
You gotta have tattoos a beard and face art
Take it from us we’ve been down that road
We’re from every city, state and zip code


Pedicabber:


I’m a southern boy
Y’all come back now ya hear
I spit cliches every damn day of the year
Pirate Mike: Arghhh I’m pirate Mike, that’s my gimmick
But in my real life, I drive a Honda Civic


Jersey, to Glen:


So who are you?
