The Lyrics

This is another song I wrote for the wheelchair guy that also was recorded and apparently sold. (see "A Whole New Chair"). I think I like this one a little better.
A long, long time ago...
I can still remember
How my wheelchair squeaked once in a while
And I knew if I had my way
I'd get a new wheelchair that day
And, maybe, I'd be happy for a while.

But mass inflation made me shiver
Interest rates were high as ever
Bad news from the banker
I just couldn't afford her

I can't remember if I cried
When I saw my would-be wheelchair glide
But something's burning deep inside
The day the price went high

So bye-bye, Wheelchair salesperson guy
Sold my chevy, paid the levee
But the taxes were high
And them rich old boys were zoomin' just like a fly
Singin', "This is one good wheelchair ride,
This is one good wheelchair ride."

Did you write the wheelchair tax?
And do you know someone who's broken their back?
Well there's me so now you do.
Do you believe in fast or slow?
Can water make your motor go?
And can you teach me how the engine flows?

Well, I know that I'm in love with it
But the prices make me want to spit
I'd give up my Nike Shox Shoes.
Just to get rid of these blues.

When I found it I thought it was luck
But I only had a couple bucks
Cost more than 2 pickup trucks
The day the price went high.

I want some chicken,
Bye-bye, Wheelchair salesperson guy
Sold my chevy, paid the levee
But the taxes were high
And them rich old boys were zoomin' just like a fly
Singin', "This is one good wheelchair ride,
This is one good wheelchair ride."

Bye-bye, Wheelchair salesperson guy
Sold my chevy, paid the levee
But the taxes were high
And them rich old boys were zoomin' just like a fly
Singin', "This is one good wheelchair ride,
This is one good wheelchair ride."

Well I finally found a thing to do
So I bought a Scratch-N-Win or two
I thought I had a good chance
Oh, and I really had a chance!
'Cause the sellers tried to make me poor;
But in poverty, I was no more
I called them back and ordered four
The day the price went high

Now I'm singin'
Bye-bye, Wheelchair salesperson guy
Bought a Chevy, hell, bought 30
On the blink of an eye
Us rich old boys are zoomin' just like a fly
Singin', "This is one good wheelchair ride,
This is one good wheelchair ride."
