Workin' the schedule, sufficient coolant leak
We thought we were doin' the right thing
Well ya cannot be too picky, in Cheyenne on a Sunday
And up walked a mechanic with perpendicular teeth
Perpendicular teeth x 8

By the seventeenth hour, they pulled us up in the 'bayg
and funky tooth started diggin down under the hood
After clearin a path to the water pump, and takin' a four hour break,
By hour 27 we were all good, And we sailed
From little America x 8

Only 2 days later, on the way down to Deep Elum,
We broke down in Oklahoma, where the wind come behind the rain
We got towed to a town called Perry, where a woman's car took priority
She had a Kidney In A Cooler, so two nights we had to stay so she could
Deliver the Kidney x 8

If you go down to Deep Elem, down to the gypsy tea room, tell em
Mama broke down in Perry and I'll try to make it back soon
Oh, sweet mama, your daddy got them Deep Elem Blues
Oh, sweet mama, well your daddy got them Deep Elem Blues

Well I know I'll be payin, for the conquest life she threw,
Unrealistic maybe, but there's somethin I got to do, I need
A big ass bus with a satellite dish, a double-decker double wide,
What I wish, I dream of it, oh it must be true

Double Decker Double Wide x 8

It's gonna have two ice makers, in both refrigerators, a silent but violent
generator, to run the subwoofers and the disco ball, and the escalator
up to the dance hall, On the second floor with a giant skylight, A drivin
range and jacuzzi just right, for skinny dippin right after the show,
At 80 miles an hour, it's worth all the dough.......

Until then, I'll stand on the corner with a sign,
Says, I will work for my Double Decker Double Wide

My Double Decker Double Wide x 8

Perpendicular Teeth, Little America, Deliver The Kidney, In my
Double Decker Double Wide x 4

    General CommentProps to the person who posted this song. Truly one of the greatest songs about being on the road. Here are a few corrections in capitals:

    A BREAK IN THE schedule, sufficient coolant leak
    We thought we were doin' the right thing
    Well ya cannot be too picky, in Cheyenne on a Sunday
    And up walked a mechanic with perpendicular teeth
    Perpendicular teeth x 8

    By the seventeenth hour, they pulled us up in the BAY
    and funky tooth started diggin down under the hood
    After clearin a path to the water pump, and takin' a four hour break,
    By hour 27 we were all good, And we sailed
    From little America x 8

    Only 2 days later, on the way down to Deep Elum,
    We broke down in Oklahoma, where the wind come behind the rain
    We got towed to a town called Perry, where a woman's car took priority
    She had a Kidney In A Cooler, so two nights we had to stay so she could
    Deliver the Kidney x 8

    If you go down to Deep Elem, down to the gypsy tea room, tell em
    I'M broke down in Perry and I'll try to make it back soon
    Oh, sweet mama, your daddy got them Deep Elem Blues
    Oh, sweet mama, well your daddy got them Deep Elem Blues

    Well I know I'll be payin, ON THE CONCEPT AFTER IT'S THROUGH
    Unrealistic maybe, but there's somethin I got to do, I need
    A big ass bus with a satellite dish, a double-decker double wide,
    What I wish, I dream OPEN-EYED THAT THIS BE TRUE
