"Hey Mr. Manager" as written by and Thomas Evans....
Waiting for the phone to tell me you and I are through
And I'm not alone, I guess that everybody wants it, too

You got no feeling, you've been dealing all the wrongs
Your lies are stealing Lord, I think you should be gone

Hey, Mr. Manager
You're messing up my life
Hey, Mr. Manager
Don't think I need that kind of strife

It's the same old story, we all know it to the end
But without your boring glory, we could live again

You got no feeling, you've been dealing all the wrongs
Your lies are stealing God, I think you should be gone

Hey, Mr. Manager
You're messing up my life
Hey, Mr. Manager
Don't think I need that kind of strife

Laying down these lines This song's especially for you
It may be simple But in some ways, so are you!

Hey, Mr. Manager
You're messing up my life
Hey, Mr. Manager
Don't think I need that kind of, that kind of, that kind of strife

Waiting for the phone to tell me
You and I are through

    General CommentThis song is obviously about the band's manager. His name was Stan Polley and he ripped off Badfinger to the point where a pretty popular band that was making hits, selling lots of albums, and playing to sold-out crowds was suddenly bankrupt. But Polley drove fancy cars, had plenty of money, lived in Beverly Hills and was simply stealing away the money that the band had earned.

    The band finally figured out what he was up to but it was too late to do anything. So, bassist/singer Tom Evans wrote this song about hoping that the manager would just go away and die. Evans actually wrote this song while in anger while Polley was still their manager, and when they were supposed to record the song in the studio, Evans was scared to death, because the manager was also associated with the mafia too.

    Lesson is don't let just anybody take control of you. Badfinger just wanted to play music for a living and make enough money to support their families but they couldn't even do that.
