Benny's Garage and General Repairing
She's got electric boots, a mohair suit
You know I read it in a magazine
Bennie and the Jets
When the Jets finally turned on Bennie and walked out she had to find other work. Electric boots and mohair suits are not exemplary resumé items so she wandered the earth in search of solid, life fulfilling work. In Boulevard, CA she found it. A slight name change and an obscure location near the desert lands of Southern California kept her out of the limelight. It was here she toiled for years; her once polished fingernails now mean and frayed and a permanent smudge of grease tattooed her brow.
"I can be me here," she once told an interviewer. "I like the work, it's honest, and I never find myself in the tabloids."
Economic downturns strike even the once famous and Benny's had to close its doors in late 2008. As for Bennie, no one knows.
