Manfred Mann's Earth Band – One In The Middle lyrics

THE ONE IN THE MIDDLE
Manfred Mann

Let me tell you 'bout the Manfreds
The music that they're puttin' down
They started to play
On a rainy day
& the people came from miles around

CHORUS:
They didn't come for the rhythm
They didn't come for the beat
The people of the town
Came just to stand around
& see the singer lookin' sweet

Mike Hugg plays the drums, yeah
Tom McGuiness plays the diamond bass
But the one in the middle
Sings "Hey diddle diddle"
God, he's just a pretty face

(chorus)
They couldn't have!

(instrumental)

Manfred Mann plays the organ
Mike Vickers plays guitar
& there's a geezer called Paul
Who's so thin & so tall
& sure wants to be a star

(chorus)

(x6): See the singer lookin'...
Sweet
