"Man In The Middle" lyrics

Man In The Middle

Did you see that man in the limousine
With the pretty blond
He is fifty and the girl's only seventeen
But she doesn't care, and she never will
If he's ninety-five she don't give a damn
Just as long as he pays the bill

Did you see that man with a fat cigar
He just left his lunch with a belly
Full of lobster and caviar
He can choose the wine from a vintage year
He will drink champagne in his limousine
When the rest of us drink a beer

Cause he's the man in the middle
Never second fiddle
Just like a spider in a cobweb
Hard as a hammer
Not the kind of boss you double-cross
Cause he's the man in the middle
Knows the way to diddle
He's never bothered by his conscience
Deals with the Devil
Cause he wants to be
Man in the middle, the middle, the middle
In the middle

But you see that man made a big mistake
Even though he's got all his servants
And a mansion beside a lake
And the money too, all that he can spend
He can buy the most, nearly anything
But he can't buy an honest friend

Cause he's the man in the middle
Never second fiddle
Just like a spider in a cobweb
Hard as a hammer
Not the kind of boss you double-cross
Cause he's the man in the middle
Knows the way to diddle
He's never bothered by his conscience
Deals with the Devil
Cause he wants to be
Man in the middle, the middle, the middle
In the middle
