​Walk to Work

This song is by Virginia Coalition and appears on the album Rock & Roll Party (2003).

I walked to work 'cause my car broke down

I walked to work 'cause my car broke down
My feet started hurting on the other side of town
It's kinda hard in the city when you got no cash
My girl won't even call me

See I was broken by the man he kept me down
He kept me cold and penniless - shazaam
But now I paid my bills and I'm doing my thing
I got your girl to call me back, why not?

It's the same reason why we're doing our thing
Ordinary people gonna stand up sing
It's the same thing that made the big band swing

I been riding your bike with my shoes untied
I've been making big moves without looking on the inside
Baby that's all right for you
But that ain't gonna work for me

Simple to see the things they saw
The fire in the sky
Well I remember it all said
I got my juice and my own space ride
And I got your girl to call me back, why not?

It's the same reason why we're doing our thing
Ordinary people gonna stand up sing
It's the same thing that made the big band swing (la la la la)
Well, you can't sing the song without the girl
(I think about 'em every time I say my rhyme)
Some things you're gonna know and some you never will

Some things you'll never know
And some you will
And some you will drink and some will spill
And some will burn up and some will freeze
And some will come together with the greatest of ease

Maybe rocked and never roll
Maybe rocked and never roll
Child I'm on it
Maybe rocked and never roll
Maybe rocked and never roll

It's the same reason why we're doing our thing
Ordinary people gonna stand up
It's the same thing that made the big band swing
You can't sing the song without the girl
Some things you're gonna know and some you never will
Never will...
Never will...
It's the same reason why we're doing our thing
Ordinary people gonna stand up sing
It's the same thing that made the big band swing (la la la la)
Well, you can't sing the song without the girl
(I think about 'em every time I say my rhyme)
Some things you're gonna know and some you never will

We keep doing our thing
For reasons, we keep doing our thing
For reasons I'll never know
A child was born on the edge of something else
She said I'll be with you for someday
