Thirsty Merc — I Wish Somebody Would Build A Bridge lyrics

Munchin' on a ham and cheese sando in the mornin on friday
Cruisin down the pacific highway Thinkin bout the day ahead
I paid the rent check got my registration & phone bill
If those two don't overthrow me the dogs will
But heck at least I know the taste of bread
Why do I seem to spend my whole damn life chasing paper
I'm like an actor turned singer turned waiter
I'll wait around untill I meet with my maker
(Then i'll sign up for A. A or something)
I just wish there was some other way to get myself somewhere
This little strip of earth and all that I've done there
I'm like a bullant on the leg of a sunchair
Under a magnifying glass

I wish somebody would build a bridge
So I can get over myself
On my own I'm wasting my time

I take a phonecall on the mobile while I'm checkin the meter
One sec I need to turn up that little speaker
It's gettin noisy in this little town
We're like america we love to make a hoo-har of jack $h! T
I never ever really seemed to fit
But now I'm stuck - so deep in all of this
Come to think of it I might as well be travelling backwards
Its been an hour and I'm only in Chatswood
I hate the way that I'm becoming a product
Go pick me up for $24. 95
I'm on sale and it's retail in the world of deception
You can treat a man if he can't get erections
Is there a pill for my lack of direction
Thanks mate I'll have a pack of those

I wish somebody would build a bridge
So I can get over myself
On my own I'm wasting my time
I wish somebody would build a bridge
So I can get over myself
On my own I'm losing my mind

Its all good I got a broom and a cheap persian rig now
I can sweep the whole thing out on the side now
Out of sight out of mind
I keep on going until I'm pushing 30 to 40
And as long as I don't do something naughty
I love my wife, what a life
She comes home to find me spread on the floor
From blood poisoning, I've popped a whole lot of pills
And I'm shaking and there's a needle stickin out
Of my arm I aint fakin, I'm zoning in and zoning out
You wanna help me don't call me an ambulance honey
Just get a silver service cab this is funny
There's one passenger please goin up my own ass
You take credit card f!*k this

I wish somebody would build a bridge
So I can get over myself
On my own I'm wasting my time
I wish somebody would build a bridge
So I can get over myself
On my own I'm losing my mind
Yeah I wish somebody would build a bridge
So I can get over myself
On my own I'm wasting my time (I'm wasting my life)
I wish somebody would build a bridge
So I can get over myself
On my own I'm losing my mind
