Well, I met Don Quixote in a bar the other night
He looked a little pale but he said he was alright
He loved Dulcenea but she left him all the same
For a long black limo and a pound of rock cocaine

He looked into his whiskey and took a little sip
He said "I never had much money and I've never been too hip,
I couldn't buy her clothes, I couldn't buy that great big boat
But I always held the door for her and helped her with her coat"

Then he turned to me and said "I hope you understand
Yeah, it's tough to be just an ordinary man"

I ran into Jesus at a luxury hotel
I could see by his expression that he wasn't feeling well
I said "What's the matter?" He said "Everything is cool"
Turned my Perrier to wine then he walked across the pool

So I just stepped right up and said "This seems a little odd"
He said "Steve, it ain't easy to be the son of God
And sometimes I wonder if I got what it takes
To assume responsibility for everyone's mistakes"

Then he turned to me and said "I hope you understand
All I want to be is an ordinary man"

Well, the devil left a message on my answering machine
He said "I see you're going nowhere so I thought I'd make the scene
If you make a few concessions maybe I could lend a hand
And you won't have to be no ordinary man"

Well, I called up the devil and said "I think I'm gonna pass
Indeed I'm kinda happy despite my sorry ass
I don't need no fame or fortune, I don't need you
All I need is a buxom woman and an occasional brew"

Then I turned to him and said "I hope you understand
All I want to be is an ordinary man"
