Hangin' out at Ed and Mike's Car Shop
Working hard at making work fun
Can't get straight to keep a clean shop
But got it together for another beer run.
Valve-sucking Volkswagens, Franchise Tax Board
Wallowin' in whoopie and wonderment, too
Fiat fixin' what the Porsche can a-Ford
And Condor's mad 'cause a beer run's due!
Easy Ed and Mad Dog Donovan
Gruntin' on a bug they've gotta' shove
When the parking cop leaves the caravan
Bill Kinney he says, "Split six, Guv?"
Zippin' motor, Crazy Craig Callahan
There goes Ken, a big hole in his van
Dirty Dan Owens, Louisiana man,
Kim from Berkeley, a Karl Marx fan.
A literary shop boy-that's Pat Sauer
Runs auto parts on Dobro power.
Jim needs exhaust valves, Bob a main jet;
And Greg says Billy needs a tune-up kit.
Car owners huddle start of day
Wrenches chaw, Capitol Park Cafe
Mike Calvin's got another tip to teach,
Skinny-dippin' at Paradise Beach.
Squeeky's* workin' all alone
Charlie the Wino needs another loan
"The big man don't know I drink"
And Squeeky ain't who we all think.
Fibber and Black Dog, Orion and 'Dobe
Mellow like shop dogs ought to be
Adolph in a green long Cadillac
Brings 'em treats in a paper brown sack.
*This is true: We didn't know that Lynn, who we had trained to adjust Volkswagen valves, was a Charles Manson family member until she pulled a gun on former President Gerald Ford. She was quiet and industrious.
