      I, I'm waitin' for the man
      Twenty six dollars in my hand
      Up to Lexington, 125
      Too sick and dirty, more dead than alive
      I'm waitin for the man

      Hey, white boy, what you doin' uptown?
      Hey, white boy, you chasin' our women around?
      Oh pardon me sir, it's the furthest from my mind
      I'm just lookin for a really great time
      I'm waiting for the man

      Here he comes, he's all dressed in black
      New York shoes and a big straw hat
      He's never early, he's always late
      First thing you learn is you always gotta wait
      I'm waiting for the man

      Up to a Brownstone, up three flights of stairs
      Everybody's 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 the man

      Baby don't you holler
      Darlin' don't you bawl and shout
      I'm feeling good, I'm gonna work it on out
      I'm feeling good, I feel oh so fine
      Until tomorrow, but that's just some other time

      I'm waitin for the man.
      I'm waitin for the man.
      I'm waitin for the man.
      I'm waitin for the man
