represent rhythm.

The keyboard intro can be simulated (and is later played):

 I'm just a poor soul in the unemployement line, my God I'm hardly alive

  All night to be just what I am   I'm gonna be a blue collar man


Once more thru the keyboard riff, then thru the verse again.


Make me an offer, that I can't refuse.
Make me a respectable man.
