​The Average Man

This song is by Simple Kid and appears on the album 1 (2003).

The average man is 35 years old
He owns a car but he dreams of a better one
He's overweight but he's working on losing some
The average man of the street is mad on Streep

And he will fall in love at least two times in his life
And he will be unfaithful at least three times
He loves his wife but he sometimes dreams of a better one
Co-co, the average man, co-co

What are you looking for, average man? x4

The average man will spend 3 hours
Watching moving images on TV everyday
He spends 20 pounds a week on drinking and cigarettes
But every man says he will give up one day

And he is unhappy with his general appearance
And will spend over 3,000 hours shaving in the mirror
He has a face but he sometimes dreams of a better one
Co-co, the average man, co-co

What are you looking for, average man? x4

The average man is living for tomorrow
He cared to face the limitations today
Works hard on 3-2-6 days of the year
For a two week holiday

I saw on TV bout this man from old Birmingham
Everyday he works 17 hours
One day he'll come home and shoot both children
And the neighbors said he was an average man

What are you looking for, average man? x4

Co-co, the average man
What are you looking for, average man?
What are you looking for, average man?

Ain't nothin' average about me, man
