NOTHING MAN

Album version


I don't remember how I felt, I never thought I'd live
To read about myself in my hometown paper
How my brave young life was forever changed
In a misty cloud of pink vapor

Darling give me your kiss, only understand
I am the nothing man
(I am)

Around here everybody acts the same
Around here everybody acts like nothing's changed
Friday night, the club meets at Al's Barbecue
The sky's still the same unbelievable blue

Darling give me your kiss, come and take my hand
I am, the nothing man
(I am)

(Doo doo doo doo, doo doo doo doo)
(Doo doo doo doo, doo doo doo doo)
(Doo doo doo doo, doo doo doo doo)
(Doo doo doo doo, doo doo doo doo)

You can call me Joe, buy me a drink and shake my hand
You want courage, I'll show you courage you can understand
The pearl and silver resting on my night table
It's just me Lord, I pray and I'm able

Darling with this kiss, say you understand
I am the nothing man
I am the nothing man

(Doo doo doo doo, doo doo doo doo)
(Doo doo doo doo, doo doo doo doo)
(Doo doo doo doo, doo doo doo doo)
(Doo doo doo doo, doo doo doo doo)
(Doo doo doo doo, doo doo doo doo)
(Doo doo doo doo, doo doo doo doo)
(Doo doo doo doo, doo doo doo doo)
(Doo doo doo doo, doo doo doo doo)
