Letters To Cleo – Man On The Side lyrics

Six numbers
And one more to dial
Before I'm before you
And I tried to call
Been busy all night
Gave up waitin' at daylight

Excuse ms. Busybody, could you pencil me in when you can?
Though we both know that the worst part about it
Is that I would be free when you wanted me
If you wanted me

I am the man on the side
Hoping you'll make up your mind
I am the one who will swallow his pride
Life as the man on the side

One of the many,
But one of the few to stand back and wait for you

Excuse me S. Busybody, could you pencil me in when you can?
Though we both know that the worst part about it is
That I would be free when you wanted me
If you wanted me
If you wanted me

I am the man on the side
Hoping you'll make up your mind
I am the one who will swallow his pride
Life as the man on the side
Life as the man on the side

I fell in love with the dream that I built of you playing the part of the queen
Taking my own advice, I'm givin' up tonight
Good luck to you and the king

Excuse me ms. Busybody, could you pencil me in?
Though we both know that the worst part about it
Is I would be free when you wanted me
If you wanted me
If you wanted me

I am the man on the side
Hoping you'll make up your mind
I am the one who will swallow his pride
Life as the man on the side
