The Mamas & The Papas – String Man lyrics

(John Phillips and Michelle Gilliam)
I fell in love with the string man
Who played guitar in a rock and roll band.
And every night I抎 watch them play
But it happened at the matinee---
How I squirmed when he bent those strings,
And I screamed when he started to sing.
The way he moved and looked so groovy,
Well, ya know, he did something to me.
String man... String man... String man... String man...
So I followed the string man
Who played guitar in a string band.
And every night I抎 watch them play,
And they got better everyday.
Pretty soon, and what do ya think (what do you think),
Everybody抯 saying they抮e the biggest thing (the biggest thing)---
Hit records and making the scene (the scene),
S*** pictures in the fan magazines.
String man... String man... String man... String man...

I strung along with the string man;
He always called me his biggest fan.
Though he was kind, I should have known better
Than to think we抎 always stay together.
And then one night the show was wild and loud,
And I saw a pretty girl out in the crowd.
She waved at him and caught his eye;
The way he looked at her it made me cry.
String man---
String man... String man... String man...
String man... String man... String man...
String man... String man... String man...
