A man alone is trying to hold his own
A man alone, reduced to holding his own
All this new-found freedom is so out of sight
I've got a hot date with a baked potato tonight

And you may not want to see it
But you had better believe it
This is my one man show

Ah, this is my one man show
Ah, this is my one man show
Though it ain't very funny
It's on an extended run, yeah
This is my one man show

Well it's the same performance playing out night after night
(Night after night after night)
So take a seat and, baby, I will turn down the light
(I will turn down the light)
The curtain is raised and the audience is in for a shock
It's a holocaust of chrome, black leather and a tissue box

And I am so glad you showed up
Just in time for 'Men and Motors'
Ah, this is my one man show

Yeah
Ah, this is my one man show
Ah, this is my one man show
Though it ain't very funny
It's on an extended run, yeah
Ah, this is my one man show

Yeah this is my one man show
Yeah this is my one man show
Yeah this is my one man show
Oh this is my one man show
Yeah this is my one man show
Oh this is my one man show
Yeah this is my one man -

And if you still treat your girl like you do
Well it may be coming to a town near you, oh
Oh this is my one man show
Oh this is my one man show
Yeah this is my one man show

    General CommentOK, Jarvis quote (from when he did it live at Coachella): "This one's about a guy who kinda stays in on a Friday or Saturday night, and orders a lot of food over the telephone, and watches the TV a drinks a lot. In other words... Er... Me. No, me about four or five years ago. That's the thing, guys kinds think 'Yeah, I wanna be on my own, I don't wanna be tied down, I want to be a free agent. I want to be able to, like, roam the field. And then in the end it's like... Hmm. Yeah. Watching the TV on a Saturday night, d'you know what I mean? It's a kinda weird thing - start it, please!"

    I don't think I have to add to that. Lol.
