Watch your children round the
Abandoned well don't ask
Me to tell if they
Slipped and fell i'm just a
Salesman with my
Suitcase in hand and the
The perfect plan that you'll
Pull me out

Another day, another night, another year,
Another smile, another lie, another tear
It's bad enough this is all I've got
I never thought I'd end up here

Jingle jangle that's the
Sound of coins spent on
Useless toys made for
Useless boys I'm just a
Salesmean with my
Suitcase in hand there's a
A piece of land that I got my eye on

Another day, another night, another year,
Another smile, another lie, another tear
It's bad enough this is all I've got
I never thought I'd end up here

Friday night I'll raise my
Glass and say tomorrow
Things will change I can't
Afford to wait but by
Monday morning my alarm clock knows
How this story goes
And the endings the same as the start

Another day, another night, another year,
Another smile, another lie, another tear
It's bad enough this is all I've got
I never thought I'd end up here

Another day, another night, another year,
Another smile, another lie, another tear
It's bad enough this is all I've got
I never thought I'd end up here

Watch your children around the
Abandoned well don't ask
Me to tell if they
Slipped and fell im just
A salesman with my
Suitcase in hand there's a
A perfect plan that I'm
Working on, that I'm
Working on, that I'm
Working on

    General CommentI feel like he's saying "This better not be all I got" not "It's bad enough this is all I've got."

    General CommentI think it's pretty much mocking the business lifestyle and the repetition. The old fashion artist holds contempt for conformist business robot.. that's my take.

    General Comment"This better not be all i got" is the lyric, not "It's bad enough this is all I've got" This song is amazing.I could not get enough of it when i first got the album.

    General CommentBurninator's right, it's "This better not be all I got." and "you'll pull me out" should be "should pull me out."

    General Commentha, it's great. i think it's about a guy who wants to make more out of his life instead of being a salesman.

    General CommentI absolutely love this song. It actually has a tendency to bring me to tears on occasion. The song is a narrative about a man who never really made anything of himself even though he felt he would. He wants to change but he really just does not have it in him. He sees himself as completely unimportant and just sorta blending in with the background of life. Sad story really..
