Man In The Middle

Did you see that man in the limousine?
with a pretty blonde; he is fifty and the
girl's only seventeen.
but she doesn't care, and she never will
if he's ninety-five she don't give a damn
just as long as he pays the hill.

Did you see that man, with the fat cigar?
he just left his lunch with a bellyfull of
lobster and caviar,
He can choose a wine, from a vintage year
he will drink champagne in his limousine
when the rest of us drink a beer.

'Cause he's the man in the middle
never second fiddle
just like a spider in a cobweb
Hard as a hammer
not the kind of boss -
you double cross
'Cause he's the man in the middle
knows the way to diddle
he's never bothered by his conscience
Deals with the devil
'cause he wants to be
man in the middle, the middle, the middle
in the middle

But you see that man made a big mistake.
even though he's got all his servants and a
mansion beside a lake,
And the money, too, all that he can spend,
he can buy the most, nearly anything,
but he can't buy an honest friend.

'Cause he's the man in the middle
never second fiddle
just like a spider in a cobweb
Hard as a hammer
not the kind of boss -
you double cross
'Cause he's the man in the middle
knows the way to diddle
he's never bothered by his conscience
Deals with the devil
'cause he wants to be
man in the middle, the middle, the middle
in the middle
