Car Wash

Car Wash (1976)  by Rose Royce



Woo
You might not ever get rich
But let me tell ya it's better that diggin' a ditch.
There ain't no tellin' who ya might meet. .
A movie star or may be even an Indian Chief.

(Workin' at the) car wash.
Workin' at the car wash yeah !
Come on and sing it with me car wash.
Get with the feelin' y'all car wash yeah.


Come summer the work gets kind a hard
This ain't no place to be if ya planned on being a star.
Let me tell you it's always cool
And the boss don't mind sometimes if ya act a fool.



At the car wash
Talkin' about the car wash yeah!
Come on and sing it for me car wash.
Car wash yeah!



(Work and work) Well those cars never seem to stop comin'.
(Work and work) Keep those rags and machines hummin'
(Work and work) my fingers to the bone
(Work) at five I can't wait 'til it's time to go home
Hey
get your car washed today.
Fill up and you don't have to pay.
Come on and give us a play.
Get a wash right away.



Car wash talkin' about the car wash yeah!
Woo car wash

Those cars never seems to stop comin'
Well
I say
Keep those rags and machines hummin'





The pollen was so thick on my car that I've had to go through the car wash a few times in the past two weeks - that's unheard of for me.  I usually wait until I go through mudpuddles (rare) before I run the car through a wash.  It really doesn't get very dirty down here, but in Michigan the car seemed to need a car wash much more often.

I think the sheets of pollen have finally stopped, but the car wash song keeps running through my brain.  I thought I'd share the love!


(Work and work) Well those cars never seem to stop comin'.
(Work and work) Keep those rags and machines hummin'
(Work and work) my fingers to the bone
(Work) at five I can't wait 'til it's time to go home

Have a fabulous day!

That's really weird! And amazing. Your pictures are really pretty, in the way that pictures of everyday things taken in a slightly different way always are :)

omg, i love that song and movie - did you ever see the movie? i don't think it was called car wash - oh, and btw, whenever I am taking my car to be washed and erin is with me, she asks if i'm going to the place with the colored soap .. too funny ..

Don't tell anyone but I get all freaked out inside of a car wash. Claustrophobic (spelling?)... YIKES!
