The Lyrics

This is certainly not autobiographical in any way, for sure. Really. But, for the record, I do not live in a trailer.
There's a man who lives inside a trailer
To all the girls he meets, he feels a failure
With every girl he likes, he lets himself get psyched
Odds are he won't have the nerve to call her

He's a single man
He's a single man
He's asking for her number, I sure hope he's got game

Too many pretty faces that he sees
A pretty face can send him to his knees
Oh how he'd like to kiss
Those voluptuous red lips
Odds are he won't have the guts to do it

He's a single man
He's a single man
He's asking for her number, I sure hope he's got game

Sitting in his apartment on Monday
Still lying on the couch a week from Sunday
You know he'd like to date
But he always hesitates
Odds are he won't have the nerve to call her

He's a single man
He's a single man
He's asking for her number, I sure hope he's got game
He's a single man
He's a single man
Oh, you'd better get her number before she walks away
