I'm waiting for my man
Twenty-six dollars in my hand
Oh up to Lexington, 125
Just sick and dirty, more dead than alive
I'm waiting for my man

Hey, white boy
What you doing uptown?
Hey, white boy
You chasing our women around
Oh no, no, pardon me sir, it's the furthest from my mind
I'm just looking for a dear, dear friend of mine
I'm waiting for my man

Here he comes
He's all dressed in black
PR shoes and a big straw hat
Oh he is never early, he's always late
First thing you learn is that you always got to wait
I'm waiting for my man

Up to a Brownstone, and up three flights of stairs
No, everybody's pinned you, but nobody cares
Oh he's got the works, gives you sweet taste
Then you got to split because you got no time to waste
I'm waiting for my man
I'm waiting for my man
I'm waiting for my man

Oh baby, don't you worry
Darling, don't you bawl and shout
Oh, I'm feeling good
You know I'm gonna work it on out
Oh, I'm feeling good
I'm feeling oh so fine
Until tomorrow, but that's just some other time
I'm waiting for my man
Oh, I'm waiting for my man
Oh, I'm waiting for my man
