“A Man Left Lonely”
A man left lonely will soon grow tired of waiting,
He’ll do crazy things, yeah, on lonely occasions.
A simple conversation for the new women now and again
Makes a touchy situation when a good face come into your head.
And when he gets lonely, he’s thinking ’bout her women,
He knows she’s taking him for granted, yeah yeah,
Honey, he doesn’t understand, no no no no!
Well, the fevers of the night, they burn an unloved man
Yeah, those red-hot flames try to push old love aside.
A man left lonely, he’s the victim of the life, yes he is.
When he can’t keep up his own way, good Lord,
He’s got to do the best that he can, yeah!
A man left lonely, Lord, that lonely boy,
Lord, Lord, Lord!
