lyrics

Where’s Your Man

Once upon a time, it wasn’t long ago
I took a little trip, found myself in Mexico
I thought I knew it all, but there’s so much I didn’t know

The sun hung low and hot upon the bay
A mile just down the beach, saw her standing in the shade
I saw her look at me a moment then she looked away

I guess I should have asked her
I wish I would have asked her
Who knows what comes after now

Where’s your man, little girl, does he know what you’re doing
What’s your plan, little girl, are you leading me to ruin by your hand
Where’s your man
Where’s your man, little girl, does he know what you’re pulling
Where’s your hand, little girl, does it know what the other’s doing
Where’s your man

The sun went down, it took with it the day
The moonlight on her hair, the salt upon the wave
When I heard her say my name, I swear I heard some music play

I’m not one for letting heart rule mind
And I never quite believed in love at first sight
But I guess she didn’t care, somehow we got married that night

I guess I should have asked her
I wish I would have asked her
Who knows what comes after now

Where’s your man, little girl, does he know what you’re doing
What’s your plan, little girl, are you leading me to ruin by your hand
Where’s your man
Where’s your man, little girl, does he know what you’re pulling
Where’s your hand, little girl, does it know what the other’s doing
Where’s your man

Just look at you, I can tell I’m losing you
Every single word is true
Sort of
Okay I must confess, this story never happened
Yet it still feels real, doesn’t it, my love

The sun came up, rose high above the plane
Another hundred miles, we’re landing in the States
We rushed right off the plane, we barely made it through the gate

When suddenly a tall and handsome man
Comes walking up to me, a pistol in his hand
By the time I heard the shot, I knew I’d made my big mistake

I guess I should have asked her
I wish I would have asked her
Who knows what comes after now

Where’s your man, little girl, does he know what you’re doing
What’s your plan, little girl, are you leading me to ruin by your hand
Where’s your man
Where’s your man, little girl, does he know what you’re pulling
Where’s your hand, little girl, does it know what the other’s doing
Where’s your man
