      About "24 Hours A Day"

      Lyrics for Todd Snider - "24 Hours A Day"

      Skinny young man
      With born again eyes
      And a Jesus tattoo on his arm
      Leans on the wall
      While the traffic goes by
      The gas-mart at Fairview and Farm
      A rap song pounds
      From an '83 Caddy
      While he waits on a payphone to ring
      Been standing around since a quarter past nine
      Still hasn't heard a thing.

      24 hours a day
      24 hours a day
      Sign says we're open the man says you pay
      24 hours a day.

      Backed up on Farm
      Carhorns are screaming
      Cause some guy's Suburban is stalled.
      He guesses her daddy
      Must be back home
      Otherwise she'd have called
      He thinks to himself
      I guess I can't blame him
      It wasn't so smart what we did
      A uniformed cop gets in line with his coffee
      Some women yells at her kid.

      24 hours a day
      24 hours a day
      Sign says we're open the man says you pay
      24 hours a day.

      (harmonica solo)
      Carload of drunks
      Pulls up in a hurry
      For a six-pack before its too late.
      He starts to dial
      To leave one more message
      Stops and decides just to wait.
      Could have been different
      And maybe it couldn't
      With some things it's too late to learn.
      Fumes from the gasoline hang in the air
      World just continues to turn.

      24 hours a day
      24 hours a day
      Sign says we're open the man says you pay
      24 hours a day.

      The skinny young man
      With born again eyes
      And a Jesus tattoo on his arm
      Leans on the wall
      While the traffic goes by
      A gas-mart at Fairview and Farm
      Hmmm hmmm hmmm hmmm.
