King Of The Road - R.E.M.

Three, four, seven, eight. Three, four, seven, eight.
I ain't got no cigarettes.
It takes four hours of pushin' broom
To buy a four-by-twelve two-bit room
I'm a man of means, by no means King of the Road.

Trailers for sale or rent
Rooms to let, fifty cents
No cars no pool no pets
I ain't got no cigarettes
It takes eight hours of pushin' broom
To buy a four-by-twelve two-bit room
I'm a man a man of no means, by no means King of the Road.

Take it slim.
It takes eight hours of pushin' broom
To buy a four-by-twelve two-bit room
I'm a man of means, by no means King of the Road.

Trailers for sale or rent
Rooms to let, fifty cents
No cars no pool no pets
I ain't got no cigarettes.
It takes eight hours of pushin' broom
To buy a day-by-twelve four-bit room
I'm a man a man of no means, by no means King of the Road
