  • Lyrics
  • Hey, man
    How come you treat your woman so bad?
    That's not the way you do it
    No, no, no, you shouldn't do it like that
    I could show you how to do it right
    I used to practice every night on my wife, now she's gone
    Yeah, she's gone
    You see, her mother and me
    We never got along that well, you see

    I'd love to help you
    But everybody's telling me you look like me
    But please don't turn out like me, you look like me
    But you're not like me I know
    I had one, two, three,
    Four shots of happiness, I look like a big man
    But I've only got a little soul
    I only got a little soul

    Yeah, I wish I could be an example
    Wish I could say I stood up for you
    And fought for what was right
    But I never did
    I just wore my trenchcoat and stayed out every single night
    You think I'm joking?
    Try me
    Try me
    Yeah come on, try me tonight
    I did what was wrong though I knew what was right
    I've got no wisdom that I want to pass on
    Just don't hang round here, no, I'm telling you son
    You don't want to know me
    Oh, that's just what everybody's telling me

    And everybody's telling me you look like me
    But please don't turn into me
    You look like me
    But you're not like me I hope
    I have run away form the one thing that I ever made, now
    Only wish that I could show you
    Wish I could show a little soul
