Wishing Well Blues

Words and Music by Bruce Kula

Wish I was a big young handsome black
cool at the wheel of my Cadillac
Master of every avenue
south of the tracks
I wish I knew
how to get next to you

Wish I was a prince of the Ivy League
with full use of my Daddy's XKE
Picking and choosing the chicks who
get to be seen with me
I wish I knew
how to get next to you

Wish I was the local Rotary Man of the Year
parading my Chrysler as my neighbors cheer
in some little town a world away from here
I wish I knew
how to get next to you
