Well a funny thing happened at a gig the other day
When a man approached me with a resume’
And said 'if you need any help, then I’m your man.'
He said, 'I’ll work the door, I’ll load your gear if you boys Get thirsty, I’ll go for beer, and if it ever breaks down, I can Even fix your van'
When I asked the guy what he did for work I saw a twinkle in his eye and he gave a little smirk he said, 'I work right down the Road, I’ve got a melon stand.
Set up in a shady spot, I sell watermelon and a little good pot, And last year I made damn near thirty grand.'
He said, 'I need a change and I love your sound, I sure Would like to get out of this town and dedicate my life to a Rock and roll band.
I’ve been a race car mechanic and a body guard, I’m a CPA and I work real hard.
Come on and hire me on, I can see you boys need a hand.'
'You know I’ve done it all and been around Had a lot of good jobs, seen a lot of rough towns.
I’d like to offer you my services for hire.
I was a cook in the army and I drove a jeep, I had an Eighty acre ranch where I ran some sheep, I sang bass in the Mormon Tabernacle Choir.'

He’s a resume’ man, he’s a resume’ man.
If he can’t do it, I don’t know who can
It says right here, he’s qualified
Fifty years on the job but the man is only forty-five.

But things started getting a little weird
When he stared at Mike and took a swig of beer,
And said, 'What’s with the lady, she really blows my mind.'
Well I know the man was qualified, he’d worked a hundred Different jobs, done them all with pride but he wasn’t exactly the Help we’d hope to find.
