i got a job to drive a cab

and i began that service
although the thought of doing this
quite frankly made me nervous
 
the first day someone left the cab
before they'd left me money
i had to make it up myself
which i found quite unfunny
 
the second day i had a drunk
who couldn't hold his liquor
i could have saved a clean up bill
if only i'd been quicker
 
the third day i picked up a fare
and drove him to his address
when i arrived my tire was flat
which caused me grief and sadness
 
the fourth day i ran out of gas
when i was on the freeway
i thought i'd lose my job for sure
but i was granted leeway
 
the fifth day some guy pulled a gun
and ripped me off quite blindly
he then relieved me of my keys
which i found most unkindly
 
so now i drive an ice cream truck
and have no reservations
there's just good humor in the back
and never bad vibrations
