Lyrics I'm Waiting for the Man

I'm waiting for my man
Twenty-six dollars in my hand
Up to Lexington
One two five
Feel sick and dirty
More dead than alive
I'm waiting for my man
Hey white boy
What you doing uptown
Hey white boy
You chasing our women around
Oh pardon me sir
It's furthest from my mind
I'm just lookin' for a dear
Dear friend of mine
I'm waiting for my man
Here he comes
He's all dressed in black
PR shoes and a big straw hat
He's never early
He's always late
First thing you learn is that you always gotta wait
I'm waiting for my man
Oh work it now
Up to a brownstone
Up three flights of stairs
Everybody bodies pinned you but nobody cares
He's got the works
Gives you sweet taste
Ah then you gotta split because you got no time to waste
I'm waiting for my man
Baby don't you holler
Darling don't you bawl and shout
I'm feeling good
You know I'm gonna work it on out
I'm feeling good
I'm feeling oh so fine
Until tomorrow but that's just some other time
I'm waiting for my man
Walk it home
That's alright
Ho oh
