I been here 40 years
I been here since dirt
You know what dirt is?
Dirt
Do you know where Herb's Garage is?
You hard of hearing?
I owned that garage years ago
To that theater over there
You know where it is
Used to go there for a dime
You could go from here to Garden Grove
It was always a two-lane highway
Do you know how old I am?
Do you know how old I am?

The first license in this town was Dick's Horse's Drinks
Sold his license around
Do you know how old I am?

How you lighting that cigarette?
That's the wrong way to burn them
Two lights and turn right
Two lights and turn right
I could write a song in a heartbeat
If you ever see my darling
Drink another drink
To steal
Stealing
Do you know what I'm saying?
Are you hard of hearing?
Do you know how old I am?

One more light, my darling
We had one donut and a cup
Even though we knew
Hold on, let me get the lyrics together
Hold on, let me get the lyrics together

Molchek was the fastest race-car driver
You think you're smart?
Molchek was over the wall in Indianapolis
Over that wall
Do you know how old I am?

My dad built that car
My father built some of the finest race cars in the world
Do you know how old I am?

This is probably the last cigarette I'll ever get in my life

    General CommentSupposedly this is a verbatim transcript of an old man's rantings in a mechanic's waiting room. It seems like "Hold on, let me get the lyrics together" is Knott speaking, though.
