my lyricsbox
I left Garden City Kansas with a ticket and a yen to see New York
I typed eigty words a minute so your corporation let me go to work
I fetch paper clips and coffee even help you dodge your domineering wife
Mr Walker it's all over I don't like the New York secretary's life

In this building there's a crowd of guys with old familiar
thoughts upon their minds
That's a lot of hands a reaching out you grab the things
that I consider mine
And the president persues me even though he's old and hair a turnin' white
Mr Walker it's all over I don't like the New York secretary's life

There's a flat in Greenwich Village that I took because
the subway wasn't far
But a trumpet player's upstairs and below me ther's a jumping all night bar
And to frost a bitter cake I have to share the place
with bugs and big ol' mice
Mr Walker it's all over I don't like the New York secretary's life

Your sweetheart in personnel said I should give her
written notice like the rest
So I wrote goodbye with my brightest lipstick right
across her big expensive desk
You'd better call the Times and tell 'em put your wanted
ad right back in classified
Mr Walker it's all over I don't like the New York secretary's life

There's a Greyhound at the station and a mom at home with open arms for me
Garden City's looking better every minute now since I have learned to see
And the boy next door don't know it but come June he's
gonna gain himself a wife
Mr Walker it's all over I don't like the New York secretary's life
Mr Walker it's all over I don't like the New York secretary's life
Mr Walker it's all over I don't like the New York secretary's life
