Lyrics

Alvin:
Trailers for sale or rent, rooms to let fifty cents
No phone, no pool, no pets, don't smoke no cigarettes
Ah but, two hours of pushin' broom buys a
Eight by twelve four-bit room
I'm a man of means by no means

The Chipmunks:
King of the road

Alvin:
Third boxcar midnight train, destination Bangor, Maine
Old worn out suit and shoes, I don't pay no union dues
I eat old peanuts I have found, short but not too big around
I'm a man of means by no means

The Chipmunks:
King of the road

Alvin:
I know every engineer on every train
All the children and all of their names
And every handout in every town
And every lock that ain't locked when no-one's around
I sing

Trailers for sale or rent, rooms to let fifty cents
No phone, no pool, no pets, don't smoke no cigarettes
Ah but, two hours of pushin' broom buys a
Eight by twelve four-bit room
I'm a man of means by no means

The Chipmunks:
King of the road
King of the road
King of the road
King of the road
