E
I went to the agency
Ďcause I didnít have a job
if I lived another week, 
a bank Iíd have to rob
The man told me, "Son, 
Iíll make you a deal.
You can be a ĎTemporaryí
so you wonít have to steal!" 

Chorus: A
Iíve got the blues.
The Temporary Blues.
(B-Flat) From the top of my hat
(A)to the worn-out soles of my shoes.

I started at a job
but it wonít last long.
sometimes I wonder
what Iím doing wrong.
Canít wait Ďtil the day
that I get rich
I hope I donít have to dig a temporary ditch!

Chorus

Well the job was fine
but itís time to go
The agent said, "Son,
things are kind of slow.
I can get you a gig,
but at a lower rate."
Sometimes, the Temporary Game I hate!

Chorus

Someday Iíll be "permanent"
and it wonít be long.
You mark my words.
Iím not always wrong.
The telephone is ringing
I hope itís the Lotto Man
Because if it isnít - then I donít have a plan! 

Chorus
