Robyn Hitchcock – Man With A Woman's Shadow lyrics

He's a man with a woman's shadow
He's a man but he doesn't moan
And so softly does he creep
That he'll kiss you in your sleep
When you're alone
He's a man with a woman's shadow
He's a man out in West L. A.
And I hate to tell you this
But I love the way you kissed
Him yesterday
He never gets the girl he wants
Because the girl inside him haunts
The living room
And the dressing room
He's a man with a woman's shadow
Hieroglyphics on a yellow cone
And you can reach inside yourself
And you can find another self
And you can carve your soap and wash your spine
He's a man with a woman's shadow
