No, I think we got it

You got a '68 Chevy in the middle of a dirt pile
You see it come back because it's gonna be here for a while
Your mama needs some money too
So does her niece, your cousin

You think you'd be open to sitting down
With me and talking about it?
Would you like to sit down and talk about it?
A man does not like to be held down

And there's a guy right next to me
And he's all stressed out and texting
And something's wrong with him
And he's got a problem
And he's gotta do his job, okay?

And his wife's nagging him, because, you know
She can't get the coat this month
And they're going away this month
So why can't she have her coat?

Man down, they said
Got a man down, man down

Please know that I am distraught
Over the conversations we have had
These last few nights
I love you, I love my job

Always wanna give it back to you
And make a difference
And not hold you down
Why would you say that?

You think you'd be open to sitting down
With me and talking about it?
Would you like to sit down and talk about it?
A man does not like to be held down

How longer hey, how longer, ho
I don't know, ho, hey, hey
Ghost in the morning, hey, hey
Like a ghost in the morning

No criticizing, we don't want you to criticize
Like a ghost in the morning
It's like a ghost in the morning
Brings out the dog in me
It brings out the dog in me

Father, we beseech thee
If you're out there, please listen
Now, come on, help me
Help a man when he's down

Please, can you do me a
Can you, can you help me?
Can you do me a kindness?
Could you do me a kindness?

The following information is brought
To you by the following companies

Regarding the things I said
While I was in the car with you
And I was on the way to work
And you know I was upset and still

Hold my cell phone, it's a Blackberry, hold it
My second Blackberry's ringing
Tell 'em I'm, just ask 'em to hang on for a minute
I'd love to talk to you right now
But I'm late for a meeting, and it's Thursday
