WORDS

MAN ON A STRING

I’ve got something here to show you. 

Come with me it’s down the hall.

It’s just a man’s life, top to bottom. We’re only human after all.

Remember when your dreams were golden. 

Pouring from you like champagne.

You used to lie on hills in summer. Now you’re lying in the rain.

 

Man on a string. Does the dance you wish you could do.

Man on a string. Does whatever you tell him to.

I’ve been standing in my own light far too long.

 

Here’s comes someone else’s floor show. 

I think her name’s Elizabeth.

With studs and hoops and smiles and bangles. 

And Irish whiskey on her breath.

So help me God this girl’s the devil. She’s got a nasty, wicked mind.

So armed with all her words of wisdom, 

I set out stumbling, falling blind.

 

I put my foot into it this time. Left to chance what I’m to know.

But if I believed the fortune cookie, 

I’d be a millionaire, dead years ago.

 

Man on a string. Does the dance you wish you could do.

Man on a string. Does whatever you tell him to.

Man on a string. Does the dance you wish you could do.

Man on a string. Does whatever you tell him to.

I’ve been standing in my own light far too long.
