Paul Simon Rewrite Lyrics

I’m workin’ on my rewrite, that’s right

Gonna change the ending

Throw away the title

Toss it in the trash

Every minute after midnight

All the time I’m spending

Is just for workin’on my rewrite

Gonna turn it into cash

I been workin’ at the Car Wash

I consider it my day job

‘Cause it’s really not a pay job

But that’s where I am

Everybody says “The old guy

Workin’at the Car Wash?”

Hasn’t got a brain cell left

Since Vietnam

[Chorus:]

But I say

Help me, help me

Help me, help me

Thank you!

I’d no idea

That you were there

When I said help me, help me

Help me, help me

Thank you

For listening to my prayer

I’ll eliminate the pages

Where the father has a breakdown

And he has to leave the family

But he really meant no harm

Gonna substitute a car chase

And a race across the rooftops

Where the father saves the children

And he holds them in his arms

Yeah I’m workin’on my rewrite, all right

Gonna change my ending

Throw away the title

Toss it in the trash

Every minute after midnight

All the Time I’m spending

Is just for workin’on my rewrite.

Gonna turn it into cash

[Chorus:]

I said

Help me, help me

Help me, help me

Thank you!

I’d no idea

That you were there
