One man he disappoint me
He give me the gouge and he take my glee
Now every other man I see
Remind me of the one man who disappoint me

Wait til I get him back
He won't have a back to scratch
Yeah keep turning that chin
And you will see my face
As i figure how to kill what i cannot catch

So I say and on I go
To another one who me disappoint
So-o-o

The next one up a contemptible snob
He lived to put things in their place
He did a commendable job
He put himself so low
He can hardly even look me in the face

Wait til I get him back
He won't have a back to scratch
Yeah, keep turning that chin
And you will see my face
As i figure how to kill what I cannot catch

Oh he made my blood just burn
I've flipped so far
I thought that I would not return


But the last one I had who was getting my hopes up
I might have been a little fast to dismiss
I think he let me down whenhe didn't disappoint me
He didn't always guess right but he usually got my gist

So wait til I get him back
Gonna bring him home and watch him unpack
Hey, keep turning that chin
And you will see my face is fixed on the one I'm gonna get back

I'm gonna get back
I'm gonna get him back
