I'm Waiting for the Man
I'm waiting for my man
Twenty-six dollars in my hand
Up to Lexington, one-two-five
Feel sick and dirty, more dead than alive
I'm waiting for my man

Hey, white boy, what you doing uptown?
Hey, white boy, you chasing our women around?
Oh pardon me sir, it's the furthest from my mind
I'm just looking for a dear, dear friend of mine
I'm waiting for my man

Here he comes, he's all dressed in black
PR shoes and a big straw hat
He's never early, he's always late
First thing you learn is that you always gotta wait
I'm waiting for my man

Up to a brownstone, up three flights of stairs
Everybody-body's pinned you, but nobody cares
He's got the works, gives you sweet taste
Aw, then you gotta split because you got no time to waste
I'm waiting for my man

Baby don't you holler, darling don't you bawl and shout
I'm feeling good, you know I'm gonna work it on out
I'm feeling good, I'm feeling so fine
Until tomorrow, but that's just some other time
I'm waiting for my man
Walk me home
