Original video
Well I'm waiting at the bus stop in downtown L.A.
Well I'm waiting at the bus stop in downtown L.A.
But I'd much rather be on a boardwalk on Broadway

Well I'm sitting here thinkin' just how sharp I am
Well I'm sitting here thinkin' just how sharp I am
I'm an under assistant west coast promo man

Well, I promo groups when they come into town
Well, I promo groups when they come into town
Well, they laugh at my toupee, they're sure do put me down

Well, I'm sitting here thinking just how sharp I am
Yeah, I'm sitting here thinking just how sharp I am
I'm a necessary talent behind every rock and roll band

Yeah, I'm sharp
I'm really, really sharp
I sure do earn my pay
Sitting on the beach every day, yeah
I'm real real sharp, yes I am
I got a Corvette and a seersucker suit
Yes I have

Here comes the bus, uh oh
I thought I had a dime
Where's my dime?
I know I have a dime somewhere
I'm pretty sure
