​Mean Man

This song is by The Detroit Cobras and appears on the album Baby (2004).

These salty tears falling from my eyes
He's a mean man, he's that kind of guy
Well I been lovin' him since school days
I guess for me I should say fool days

After waiting all this time
Thinkin' he would just be mine
He acts as if he doesn't know
Just how much I love him so

Mean man, he's a cool man
Mean man, a break-the-rule man

Took me so long you know it's a sin
And I forgive him time and time again
Some day I may break these ties that bind
I see no hope for this soul of mine

When I try to face the truth
Tell myself I'll cut him loose
He puts his arms around me tightly
Ooh, he's so divine

Mean man, he's a cool man
Mean man, a break-the-rule man

Jimmy loves me and Henry, too
But I still wait around for you-know-who
Just when I need him, he's a goner
But still my love keeps getting stronger

When I get to feelin' tired
He decides to come around
He acts as if he doesn't know
I'm alive, he hurts me so

Mean man, he's a lover man
Mean man, like no other man
Mean man, but he's a sweet man
Mean man, he's my main man
