I'm a washed-up has-been
I'm a used up never was
I've been wondering what the hell my problem is
I used to roll into town
seven cylinder Econoline
with the water pump steaming up in the summertime
and then I'd sit down and have a beer
and I'd string up my guitar
turn the amp up way too loud
and drive the audience out of the house
Washed-up washed-up has-been

Well we'd take out 50 bucks
and drink beer at a stranger's house
until we were sick of talking about ourselves
and then we'd pass out
we'd argue in the parking lot
we'd trip in the desert sun
we'd swim in the neighbor's pool
and we'd laugh at all the working fools
I'm a washed-up has-been
I'm a used up never was
please get me three aspirin and I'll call you in the morning
Washed-up washed-up has-been

Now I'm looking for the man pulling down four figures a year
my van's dead in the parking lot
and I don't think it will ever run again
I'm a washed-up has-been
I'm a used up never was
please get me three aspirin and I'll call you in the morning
Washed-up washed-up has-been
