The letters in the title stood for something during or after the war, and the implication was this civil service or government job was not so hot.
Lyrics & Music:
U.S.E.D, suckers every day, fifty cents an hour, four bucks a day
U.S.E.D, suckers every day, they make you whistle for your money.
The higher the mountain, the cooler the breeze,
The younger the couple, the tighter the squeeze
Uhu uhu tama tama ding dong a belly la
Lei ana ika razzle dazzle.
I took my gal for a buggy ride, the moon up above was shining so bright
I pulled down the shade and tried to make the grade
Lei ana ika no dice-ee
Fort Street, mauka, McCully, makai, too many signs makapia my eye
You can have my car but as for me, I holo holo on the H. R. T.
Ready on the right, ready on the left, ready on the firing line
The flag is up, the flag is down, lei ana ika "Maggie's drawers"
I went downtown to buy me a car
I gave the man the money, he gave me the car
I stepped on the gas, four tires flat,
Lei ana ika "sabotage-e"
E.N.D., my song is ended; P. A. U, my song is pau
Anybody here don't like my song can kiss my cheek and roll along.
Mahalo to Lani Lee for these lyrics.
