>> home : lyrics : the man from manhattan (eddie howell 1976)

Hey little lady do you love me
As much as you tell me you do
Oh I'm not the man you think I am
The game I've been playing is through

Hey little girl do you trust me
Oh I'm gonna tell you no lies
I'm gonna come clean, don't make a scene
I've been hiding behind a disguise

Oh I'm the man from Manhattan, olé
The man with a price on his head (lots of money)
The man from Manhattan, the surface is satin
But the lining is laden with lead

Oh I've been a fugitive too long
Running away from my fame
My enemies flee at the sight of me
They shake at the sound of my name

Cause I'm the man from Manhattan, olé
The man with a price on his head (go and get the deputy)
The man from Manhattan, the surface is satin
But the lining is laden with lead

Don't be afraid, it's only a dream (I'm only dreaming)
An imaginary hero, a vision I've seen
(Ah ah ah ah ah) Cuckoo

I know my true destination
The day will eventually come
I tell you my friend I know my end will be
When I'm standing alone in the sights of a gun (Ooooh)

Oh I'm the man from Manhattan, olé
The man with a price on his head, yeah
The man from Manhattan, the surface is satin
But the lining is laden with lead

Coz I'm the man from Manhattan, olé (everybody listen)
The man with a price on his head (lots of money)
The man from Manhattan, the surface is satin
But the lining is laden with lead
