THE SALESMAN ON THE ROAD

Lyrics

I made my way through the tunnel,

I made my way to my home.

I lived my life by the skyline,

I lived my life in the dome.

 

I was a creature of habit.

I was a man without ring.

I had to live by the token

and I was loving the thing.

 

I have a daughter in Memphis,

I have a son in Palm Springs.

I have another in Tucson

and in L.A I have twins.

 

I lived my life as a salesman,

I lived my life on the road.

I met these Queens doing business;

now I will deal with the load.

 

I have a tall one in Lakewood,

who is the son in between.

And there's the daughter in Oakland,

the girl I never have seen.

 

Now I'm retiring from business,

now is the time to go home.

But in my mind something's stirring,

though I am close to my dome.

 

So I changed the lane in the tunnel;

broke off my way back to home.

There's some service to tender:

I've to take care of the boom.

 

I made my way to the airport,

I made my way through the gate.

I took the flight to wherever,

I've had the pleasure to date.

 

So still I'm doing my business,

still I'm nowhere near home.

But soon I'm due for vacation,

I have a daughter in Rome.
