Just enough to get by
fix the car and feed the kids
all my tools right here
Can I help you?
Who has seen the handyman?
He went away without his pay
most of the work was done
and I expected him at dawn
All I really want to do
is sweep your gutters
tear down that facade
trim your trees and rosebush too
Perhaps the handyman is ill
or down on his luck
maybe this time he got drunk
or lost his tools and ran amuck
Where was that house I was working at
was the house on fourth or fifth or sixth?
maybe if I drive around
but my trucks in the shop no luck
Is that the handyman outside
standing perplexed with a cig in his hand?
his rolling cart of tools I recognize
I call out eagerly for the handyman
There it is that’s the one
I heard a voice in the distance call
it called me by name
now I can work and get my pay
there is so much to do
today tomorrow the whole year too
your job for me is never through
