middle man lyrics – little river band

time to turn an ear to the middle man
there’s another lesson to be learned
he who laughs the last is the better man
a man needs his soul when he’s getting burned
i was made to feel like a sinner man
left without a home to do or die
only half a chance to begin again
a man wants to be alone when he needs to cry
the first will be the last, the week will be strong
does anybody know who is right and who is wrong?
i gave it all i had, i tried to understand
pushed it all away, with a sweep from my hand
now it’s time to turn an ear to the middle man
i feel, it’s time to run to the middle man
there’s another heartache on its way
he who takes it all, is the better man
a man needs to step aside when he’s in the way
now it’s time to turn to the middle man
there’s another lesson to be learned
he who laughs the last is the better man
(time to turn an ear)
to the middle man
