Blue Monday morning at the factory gate
Almost time to clock in
The boys were bettin' that Joe wouldn't show
'Cause they had seen him over the weekend

He had four new tire on his old Cadillac
Betty the waitress and some clothes in the back
A dashboard full of road maps of Mexico
Yeah, Joe knows how to live

He said, "Women were made to love, money is made to spend
Life is something, buddy, you will never live again"
Yeah, you've got to admit it
Joe's knows how to live

And now they'll be down at the ocean
He and Betty stretched out somewhere
The only blue in his life is the blue moonlight
Bouncin' off Betty's blonde hair

I can just see 'em rollin' 'round on the sand
I never thought I was a jealous man
But when I think what he's doin' that I'm not, hah
Lord, I'm jealous about it

He said, "Women were made to love, money is made to spend
Life is something, buddy, you will never live again"
Yeah, you've got to admit it
Joe's knows how to live

Let's go to Mexico

Now Betty's back home with her mother
Joe's back on the assembly line
But he brings in his pictures and his Mexican hat
Just to remind us sometime

That women were made to love, money is made to spend
Life is something, buddy, you will never live again
Yeah, you've got to admit it
Joe's knows how to live

Yeah, you've got to admit it
Joe's knows how to live

That boy's a genius
He sure is crazy
Ooo la la la la la la
