SECOND HAND MAN
music & lyrics: Dave Divis | arranged by: George Peterson

Well I knew a man who had a few
Oh, he loved a lot but the people knew him
As a lonely man, didn't have a plan
Didn't have a fan
He was a second hand man
'Cause he never had a lover
That he could call his friend
Didn't want any worries
Didn't have the time to spend
Couldn't have the compromises
Never thought it right to bend
Didn't want to be relied on
Didn't want to depend

And he had a book of the girls that were good
And he put them in order as best as he could
He'd watch them fall as he would stand
'Cause it made him feel bigger
Made him feel like a man
And he never believed that he could truly be
Somebody's only partner
And he could still stay free
So he tried to look
And he never seemed to see
The moments that he missed
And the opportunities

Didn't he know that
He would turn out to be a lonely man?
He never wanted
To turn out to be somebody's only man
Now he's second hand

He's a second hand man
He's just a second hand man

Then he met a girl who turned his head
Oh, his love was true
At least that's what he said
But she didn't fit in the life he led
He wrot her poems, sang her songs
And bought her flowers instead
He said, “Girl,won't you love me
There is no other way
Then to promise you won't leave me
Please promise that you'll stay
Together us forever
That's the way that it should be
Please never walk away from here
always stand right next to me”

He looked at her and in her face
The truth that he saw
Put him right in his place
And he turned away
As she stood her ground
'Cause he just couldn't face
The answers he'd found
She said, “I know your reputation
And what you used to be
And now I'll never love you
The way that you love me
To like you as a good friend is all that I can
I'm not in the market for a second hand man”

Didn't he know that
He would turn out to be a lonely man?
He never wanted
To turn out to be somebody's only man
Now he's second hand

He's a second hand man
He's just a second hand man
He's a second hand man
He's just a second hand man
