Johnny Rivers – Secret Agent Man lyrics

There's a man who leads a life of danger
To everyone he meets he stays a stranger
With every move he makes another chance he takes
Odds are he won't live to see tomorrow

Secret agent man, secret agent man
They've given you a number and taken away your name

Beware of pretty faces that you find
A pretty face can hide an evil mind
Ah, be careful what you say
Or you'll give yourself away
Odds are you won't live to see tomorrow

Secret agent man, secret agent man
They've given you a number and taken away your name

------ lead guitar ------

Secret agent man, secret agent man
They've given you a number and taken away your name

Swingin' on the Riviera one day
And then layin' in the Bombay alley next day
Oh no, you let the wrong word slip
While kissing persuasive lips
The odds are you won't live to see tomorrow

Secret agent man, secret agent man
They've given you a number and taken away your name

Secret agent man

    Secret agent was actually titled, "danger man" for its first season in both the uk and in the usa. When it returned in 1965, the name was changed to secret agent. When the series became available on video (and later on dvd), the name used on the packaging was, "secret agent aka danger man".
    Patrick mcgoohan was the first choice to play "james bond" in the movies. He turned down the role because he thought it was too demeaning to women! Just one and a half years after this series ended, mcgoohan would again star as a cool, calm, and collected spy on the cult series, "the prisoner (1967)".
