The Lyrics

A sequel of sorts to Airfarcewon's "Jamaica Fare not too Well."
I'm a grovelin' man.
Felt myself stopped
all over the world.
'Cause in every town
I get turned down
by at least one lovely girl.

There's a pretty senorita laughing at me
down in old Mexico.
It seems even in the cold, I'm not too stiff
for my cute little Eskimo.

Oh, my sweet fraulein down in Berlin town
thinks my bratwurst is raw.
And my China doll down in old Hong Kong
won't ride in my rickshaw.

Pretty Polynesian baby, over the sea
I remember the night
when you looked down and laughed
"Ha ha ha, tee hee!"
and you made much worse my plight.

(James Burton guitar break)

Oh, my Chowdah-head up in Boston town
she won't give me a Yank.
And my elfin chick out in Wyoming?
I'm not her diesel tank.

Pretty Democratic baby, down in D.C.
I remember the night
when you told me, "Mike, you're no Jack Kennedy"
and you turned wing to the right.

Oy, I'm a grovelin' man!
Yes, I'm a grovelin' man!
Oy, I'm a grovelin' man!
Yes, I'm a grovelin' man!
