Hands Off The Man (Flim Flam Man)

Album: More Than A New Discovery (1967)
  • Hands off the man, the flim flam man
    His mind is up his sleeve and his talk is make believe
    Oh lord, the man's a fraud, he's flim flam man
    He's so cagey, he's a flim flam man

    Hands off the man, flim flam man
    He's the one in the Trojan horse making out like he's Santa Claus
    Oh lord, the man's a fraud, he's a flim flam man He's a fox, he's a flim flam man
    Everybody wants him, the people and the police and all the pretty ladies disarm
    Oh yeah, the beautiful gent, you know he has hardly a cent
    He pays his monthly rent with daily charm

    Hands off the man, the flim flam man
    His mind is up his sleeve and his talk is make believe
    Oh lord, the man's a fraud, he's flim flam man He's so cagey, he's an artist
    He's a fox, he's a flim flam man
    Don't believe him, he's a flim flam Ole road runner, he's a flim flam
