Your mouth said this never
but your fingers have shown me
that your head is so clever
you claim that you own me
forever

You have the right to conduct me
in whatever fashion
your attempt construct me
in the interest of passion
you sent me
to toledo

I came back with handfulls
I did what you asked me
but after the thank yous
that you quickly got passed me
I'm expected
you're expecting
I'm expected
expected

    General CommentSince Jack has said he likes to write stories about random characters, I'm going to say that this song is about a guy whose significant other (wife , girlfriend) is pregnant (expecting). She is, like many hormonal pregnant women, sending him on a thousand arrands just because she can. (she's expecting and therefore he's expected)

    General Commentits a long shot but i think he may be talking about his mother. maybe youve noticed but he seems to be obsessed with talking about mothers in so many songs maybe hes talking about his mother in this song aswell. maybe its his mother that was expecting of him. You have the right to conduct me
    in whatever fashion
    your attempt construct me
    in the interest of passion
    that sounds like a mother to me

    General Commentthis doesn't sound like iron man at all. As to what it means, not a clue. Not all of Jacks lyrics make sense. This song has a great rythm if you can appreciate its simplicity.
