People will know when they see this show the kind of a
Guy I am.
They'll understand just what I stand for, and what I
Just can't stand.
They'll perceive what I believe in and what I know is
True,
And they'll recognise I'm a one man guy; always was
Through and through.

Yeah, I'm a one man guy in the morning, I'm the same in
The afternoon.
One man guy when the sun goes down, I whistle me a one
Man tune.
A one man guy.
One man guy, only kinda guy to be.
I'm a one man guy.
I'm a one man guy, and that one man is me.
I'm a one man guy.

People meditate, hey that's just great- trying to find
An inner you.
People depend on family and friends and other folks to
Get you through.
I don't know why I'm a one man guy, or why this is a
One man show,
But these three cubic feet of bone and blood and meat
Are what I love and know.

'Cause I'm a one man guy in the morning, I'm the same
In the afternoon.
One man guy when the sun goes down, I whistle me a one
Man tune.
One man guy.
One man guy, only kinda guy to be.
I'm a one man guy.
I'm a one man guy, and that one man is me.
I'm a one man guy.

I'm gonna bathe and shave and dress myself and eat solo
Everynight.
Unplug the phone and sleep alone, stay right out of
Sight.
Sure it's kinda lonely, yeah it's sort of sick.
Being your own one and only is a selfish dirty trick.

But I'm a one man guy in the morning, I'm the same in
The afternoon.
One man guy when the sun goes down, I whistle me a one
Man tune.
One man guy.
One man guy, only kinda guy to be.
I'm a one man guy.
I'm a one man guy, and that one man is me.
I'm a one man guy.
