You watch every move
And call it slide of hand
You know, it's what I do
But never who I am, never who I am

Started on the street
With cards and dollar bills
Shuffling my feet
But never could be still, never could be still

And I am an orphan man but ain't we all?
I can make myself disappear
I am an orphan man but ain't we all?
And I know somewhere worse than here

I had a bride, I sawed her in half
Couple people cried
Most of them just laughed
Most of them just laughed

Well, I had a son
Strong of hand and will
I taught him how to run
But never how to steal, never how to steal

And I am an orphan man but ain't we all?
And I can make myself reappear
I am an orphan man but ain't we all?
And I could be somewhere worse than here

I was called amazing
And I make folks believe
With nothing in my pockets
And nothing up my sleeve, yeah

I am an orphan man but ain't we all?
I can make myself disappear
I am an orphan man but ain't we all?
And I know there's somewhere worse than here
Worse than here, worse than here
