lyrics

It goes up
It goes down
It goes up and then again it goes down
And I’m waitin’ for the whole damn town
To start yellin’ at me that I’m takin’ too long

I’m a steel bridge tender
Steel bridge tender
I’m a steel bridge tender
Steel bridge tender
I’m a steel bridge tender
Steel bridge tender
I’m a steel bridge tender

Well the boats
Yeah the boats
Gather round
Gather round
Yeah the boats they all gather around
But I hold
Yeah I hold
All the power
So I only let ‘em go through once an hour

I’m a steel bridge tender
Steel bridge tender
I’m a steel bridge tender
Steel bridge tender
I’m a steel bridge tender
Steel bridge tender
I’m a steel bridge tender

Everyone says I’m old
Everyone says I’m old
And I don’t know but I’ve been told

I’m a steel bridge tender
Steel bridge tender
I’m a steel bridge tender
Steel bridge tender
I’m a steel bridge tender
Steel bridge tender
I’m a steel bridge tender
