Series 500

genuine leather

cracked and scarred

never better

four seventy-five in ’72

the brown is brassy

and cool like you

 

wide collar worn with

seventies superfly sideburns

the western yoke on his back

spending commissions he has earned

he sure has got a knack

Brylcreem hair all shining

big horn-rimmed blues a-spying

 

cool sales

cool sales

hot leads

those hot leads

are cold calls

cold calls

hey buddy, buddy

you got the balls?

 

4 rye and Cokes

some Players smokes

here’s my Parker pen

sign on the line, my friend

a handshake, son

and the deal’s done

’til we meet again

 

it’ll be

 

cool sales

cool sales

hot leads

those hot leads

are cold calls

cold calls

hey buddy, buddy

you got the balls?

 

Series 500
