One Down

Original Artist: Ben Folds

I got up and I drove to work
On the wrong side of the road
And what the hell would I do
I must admit I didnít know.

And Andrew came along yíall
To add a couple of lines or so
I got one I finished yesterday
And Iíve got 3.6 to go.

One down and 3.6
Tomorrow and Iím out of here
One down and 3.6
Tomorrow and Iím out of here.

People tell me:
"Ben just make up junk and turn it in"
But I never could quite bring myself
To write a bunch of shit.

I donít like wasting time on music
That wonít make me proud
But now Iíve found a reason
To sit right down and shit some out.

One down and 3.6
Tomorrow and Iím out of here
One down and 3.6
Tomorrow and Iím out of here.

I love you more than
Any man has loved before
I love you more than
All the stars up in the sky
I think that we should settle down
And live happily forever, after
What do you think of that?

Iím really not complaining
I realise its just a job
And I hate hearing belly aching
Rockstars whine and sob.

Cos I could be bussing tables
I could well be pumping gas
Yeah but I get paid much finer
For playing piano and kissing ass.
And its 1.6 yesterday
And 3.6 to last.

One down and 3.6
Tomorrowand Iím out of here
One down and 3.6
Tomorrow and Iím out of here.

One down and 3.6
One down and 3.6
Tomorrow and Iím out of here.
