mr. record company man

mister you don’t know me
but music is my trade
i’m known in some circles
for the songs that i’ve played
lately i’ve down on my luck
i sure could use a hand
so won’t you please cut me a deal
mr. record company man

now granted i ain’t pretty
and i can hit all the note
but some say i have a je ne sais quoi
so i’m loved by all the folks
the tapes just me and my guitar
i had to let go of the band
so won’t you please cut me a deal
mr. record company man

i don’t really want to beg
but i’ll do what i have to do
just to get you to play my tape
and hear a song all the way through
by the time the song is over
you’ll be my biggest fan
so won’t you please cut me a deal
mr. record company man

get off your ass and cut me a deal
mr. record company man
