Snowball in Hell - They Might Be Giants

Avalanche or roadblock
I was a snowball in hell
Avalanche or roadblock
A jailor trapped in his cell

Money's all broke, and food's going hungry
If it wasn't for disappointment
I wouldn't have any appointments

Side effect or drug trip
Don't tease me with all of your might
Side effect or drug trip
My panacea's in a Xerox shop

Have a nice day, you want it when?
Have a nice day, have a nice day

"I didn't expect to find a salesman
drinking coffee this late in the morning.
How long you been here, Joe?"

"Oh, I don't know, I guess thirty, forty-five minutes maybe.
Why do you ask?"

"You must be making a lot of sales, piling up good income."

"Oh... uh... I'm doing all right.
I could do better, but... Ohahaha - I get it Paul.
Back on that old 'Time is Money' kick, right?"

"Not back on it, Joe, still on it."

Avalanche or roadblock
I was a snowball in hell
Avalanche or roadblock
A jailor trapped in his cell
Money I owe, money-iy-ay
Money I owe, money-iy-ay

Avalanche or roadblock
I was a snowball in hell
Yes I was a snowball in hell
Yes I was a snowball in hell
