String Man Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

I fell in love with the string man
Who played guitar in a rock n' roll band
And every night I'd watch them play
But it happened at the matinee

How I squirmed when he bent those strings
And I screamed when he started to sing
The way he moved and looked so groovy
Well, ya know, he did something to me

String man
String man
String man

So I followed the string man
Who played guitar in a string band
And every night I watch them play
And they got better everyday

Pretty soon and what do ya think
Everybody's saying, they'e the biggest thing
Hit records and making the scene
Sexy pictures in the fan magazines

String man
String man
String man

I strung along with the string man
He always called me his biggest fan
Though he was kind, I should have known better
Than to think we'd always stay together

And then one night the show was wild and loud
And I saw a pretty girl out in the crowd
She waved at him and caught his eye
The way he looked at her it made me cry

String man
String man
String man
