One man he disappoint me
He give me the gouge and he take my glee
Now every other man I see
Remind me of the one man who disappoint me

Wait til I get him back
He won't have a back to scratch
Yeah keep turning that chin
And you will see my face
As i figure how to kill what i cannot catch

So I say and on I go
To another one who disappoint
The next one up a contemptible snob
He lived to put things in their place
He did a commendable job
He put himself so low
He can hardly even look me in the face

Wait til I get him back
He won't have a back to scratch
yeah, keep turning that chin
And you will see my face
As i figure how to kill
what I cannot catch

Oh he made my blood just burn
I've looked so far
I thought that I would not return
But the last one I had who was getting my hopes up
I might have been a little fast of this mess
I think he let me down when he didn't disappoint me
He didn't always guess right but he usually got my gist

So wait til I get him back
Gonna bring him home and watch him unpack
Hey, keep turning that chin
And you will see my face is fixed on the one
I'm going to get back

I'm going to get him back
