Trailer for sale or rent
Rooms to let fifty cents
No phone, no pool, no pets
I ain't got no cigarettes

Ah but, two hours of pushin' broom
Buys a eight by twelve four-bit room
I'm a man of means by no means
King of the road

Third boxcar, midnight train
Destination Bangor, Maine
Old worn out suit and shoes
I don't pay no union dues

I smoke old stogies I have found
Short but not too big around
I'm a man of means by no means
King of the road

I know every engineer on every train
All of the children and all of their names
Every handout in every town
And every lock that ain't locked when no-one's around
I sing

Trailers for sale or rent
Roms to let fifty cents
No phone, no pool, no pets
I ain't got no cigarettes

Ah but, two hours of pushin' broom
Buys a eight by twelve four-bit room
I'm a man of means by no means
King of the road

Trailers for sale or rent
Rooms to let fifty cents
No phone, no pool, no pets
I ain't got no cigarettes

Ah but, two hours of pushin' broom
Buys an eight by twelve four-bit room
I'm a man of means by no means
King of the road

Trailers for sale or rent
Rooms to let fifty cents
No phone, no pool, no pets
