I Walk to Work

**This song started out like most AAHHHH songs do...with Bob and I sitting on his porch brainstorming. We didn't have any strong ideas for songs and we started getting frustrated. I eventually came up with the idea of writing a song about walking to work. I wrote the whole thing pretty quickly, and it quickly became one of our favorite songs (and still is). We originally recorded this as a single, but then rerecorded it for The Polka Collection.**

My job is a good one

It'll get me far

But there's just one problem

I don't have a car

 

I live six miles away

Five hour commute every day

There's nothing more exhilarating

Than walking to work on a freeway

 

I walk to work in a suit and tie

I walk to work afraid that I might die

I walk to work, soot makes it hard to see

I walk to work, I'll get there eventually 

 

Driving is for suckers

That cant take the heat

Get out of your car

And back on the street

 

I live six miles away

Five hour commute every day

There's nothing more exhilarating

Than walking to work on a freeway

 

I walk to work in a suit and tie

I walk to work afraid that I might die

I walk to work, soot makes it hard to see

I walk to work, I'll get there eventually 

 

Bloody and battered

My clothes torn and tattered

But I still made it on time

My boss wasn't flattered

But nothing else mattered

That promotion had to be mine
