  • Song Lyrics:
    I sell a line of plastics
    And I travel on the road
    And I have a case of samples
    Which believe me is a load

    Every night a strange cafe
    A strange hotel and then
    Early in the morning
    I am on the road again

    When the season's over
    And my lonesome journey ends
    That's the only time I see
    My family and my friends

    I drive up Ocean Parkway
    And before I stop the car
    My ma leans out the window
    And she hollers, "Here we are!"

    Shake hands with your Uncle Max, my boy
    And here is your sister Shirl
    And here is your cousin Isabel
    That's Irving's oldest girl
    And you remember the Tishman twins
    Gerald and Jerome
    We all came out to greet you
    And to wish you welcome home

    Merowitz, Berowitz, Handelman, Schandelman
    Sperber and Gerber and Steiner and Stone
    Boskowitz, Lubowitz, Aaronson, Baronson,
    Kleinman and Feinman and Freidman and Cohen

    Smallowitz, Wallowitz, Tidelbaum, Mandelbaum
    Levin, Levinsky, Levine and Levi
    Brumburger, Schlumburger, Minkus and Pinkus
    And Stein with an "e-i" and Styne with a "y"

    Shake hands with your Uncle Sol mein boy
    And here is your brother Sid
    And here is your cousin Yetta
    Who expects another kid

    Whenever you're on the road my boy
    Where ever you may roam
    We'll all be here when you come back
    To wish you welcome home
