Joe Jackson – Man In The Street lyrics
I'm not a happy guy
But I'm not always sad
And I'm no millionaire
But I don't do so bad

But no matter who you think you are
There's always someone with a different view
There's always someone thinks he's got a right
To say what's good for you

So how do you know
That the man in the street don't care
And why don't you care
When the man in the street don't know
Anyway

I'm not a clever guy
But I'm sure not that dumb
Don't have the inside news
But I know what goes on

And if you put your faith in God above
Or if you watch the skies for superman
There's always times when you can see the answers
Slip right through their hands

So how do you know
That the man in the street don't care
And why don't you care
When the man in the street don't know
Anyway

So no matter who they think they are
As they tell you who to fight or how to dance
Why don't you give yourself a break
And give us all a chance

'cause how do you know
That the man in the street don't care
And why don't you care
When the man in the street don't know
