Beethoven's Wig

Poor Uncle Joe

from Beethoven's Wig: Sing Along Piano Classics

Poor Uncle Joe

Music: Funeral March (from Sonata, Op. 35, No. 2), Chopin
Lyrics: Richard Perlmutter

Poor Uncle Joe’s got a car that doesn’t go
So Uncle Joe’s gotta go and get a tow

Joe just hangs his head
His old car is dead

Poor Uncle Joe’s got a car that doesn’t go

Joe cleans out the trunk
It’s a piece of junk

Poor Uncle Joe’s got a car that doesn’t go

Joe never thought that when he bought it he’d see the day
His car couldn’t start and would be towed away

It won’t go. It won’t go

Poor Uncle Joe’s got a car that doesn’t go

Now Joe won’t throw a lot of dough into car repair
Cause cars in the junkyard hardly need it there

It won’t go. It won’t go.

Poor Uncle Joe’s got a car that doesn’t go
