Rusty hinge,
On a binge,
Never satisfied with what I've got,
I'm a good-for-nothing
Rusty hinge!

Always grin,
I'll be drinking my corn
'Til Gabriel blows his horn,
That music gets me swinging!

Maybe I don't know
What it means to swing,
Baby, I don't care,
When I open my mouth and start to sing!

Rusty hinge,
On a binge,
Never satisfied with what I've got,
I'm a good-for-nothing
Rusty hinge!
