​Middle Man

This song is by Little River Band and appears on the album First Under the Wire (1979).

Time to turn an ear to the middle man
There's another lesson to be learned
He who laughs the last is the better man
A man needs his soul when he's getting burned

I was made to feel like a sinner man
Left without a hope to do or die
Only half a chance to begin again
A man wants to be alone when he needs to cry

The first will be last
The meek will be strong
Does anybody know
Who is right and who is wrong?
I gave it all I had
I tried to understand
Pushed it all away
With a sweep from my hand
Now it's time to turn an ear to the middle man

I feel it's time to run to the middle man
There's another heartache on it's way
He who takes it all is the better man
A man needs to step aside when he's in the way

Oh the first will be last
And the meek will be strong
Does anybody know
Who is right and who is wrong?
I gave it all I had
I tried to understand
I pushed it all away
With a sweep from my hand
And now it's time to turn to the middle man

There's another lesson to be learned
He who laughs the last is the better man

Time to turn an ear ... To the middle man
Time to turn an ear ... To the middle man
Time to turn an ear ... To the middle man
Time to turn an ear ... To the middle man
Time to turn an ear ... To the middle man
Time to turn an ear
