Lyrics

(Quealy,Gullbergh)

I drove my road king through the alley round the back of her garage
So no one could see
She was waiting in the bedroom, candles and a bottle
Wearing nothing but a smile for me
We had to hide it from the world: still she left the curtains open
For the element of danger it would bring
He’d call on his way home around a quarter to eleven
I’d bepullin’ on my boots and that phone would ring

I am the other man
Doin’ what the other man does
A little change of plans
Not the man I once was
We’ll have a little fun /sorry, I can’t stay
But I wouldn’t have it any other way

We got a little careless, he came home an little early
Now I wake up every morning in her bed
I go out and work the day shift down at the Monahan’s Garage
And I tend bar 3 nights a week to get a head
Now I’m bringin home the bacon
Taking out the trash
I sold my bike and bought a blue SUV
Trying to do the right thing; be loyal and upstanding
Intending to fulfill her every need

Now I am the other man
Doin’ what the other man does
A little change of plans
Not the man I once was
Came looking for some fun but now I’m here to stay
I wouldn’t have it any other way

I just picked up some roses, a box of chocolate candy
And a bottle of her favorite chardonnay
She thinks that I forgot, but I made dinner reservations
We got an anniversary to celebrate

As I drove up to the house I saw a roadking in the alley
She pulled the curtains closed; I heard the back door slam
I just drove on down the road and that’s when I began
Looking for some other woman looking for some other man

I am the other man
Doin what the other man does
A little change of plans
Not the man I once was
We had a little fun/ sorry, I can’t stay
But I wouldn’t have it any other way
