MEAN MAN
(Thomas L. Yearsley)
THE PALADINS (ALLIGATOR, 1988)

You tell me that I'm mean
You tell me that I'm cruel
You say I don't treat you right
Every word you say is true!
That's because I'm a mean man
Meaning to make it up to you

You're very unhappy, sweet baby
You tell me that you're blue
You say you're gonna leave me
Gonna find somebody new
That's because I'm a mean man
Meaning to make it up to you

You say you're gonna find another man
But he will treat you wrong
The tables have turned for you baby
You want a bigger Santa Claus
That's because I'm a mean man
Meaning to make it up to you

That's because I'm a mean man
Meaning to make it up to you
