mystery man (lyrics)

by steven allen

(verse i)
come on, gather 'round I've got a story for you friends
'bout a man who's kinda quiet with a mind to pretend
he's not tall, he's not short, just nestled in the middle
word on the street he's tough, but he'll break like peanut brittle

this sweet n' salty, smooth 'n bumpy tale of a man
changes when he meets a woman named charice donovan
she's strong, she's mean, she's fierce as nails
her switchy witchy talky walky never fails

(chorus)
oh
mister, mister, mister, mister
mystery man
are you a foe
I wanna know
or a friend

tell me
mister, mister, mister, mister
mystery man
are you a foe
I wanna know
or a friend

(verse ii)
she said kiss me, kiss me, kiss me on the back of my neck
'till my hair stands taller than a man with no debts
now I know you're trying to be the proper gentleman
but come on, fight my fire, be a fireman

he said love, love, love can't handle my kiss
so I keep it tucked tightly in a place I won't miss
dug deeper than the deepest depths of quicksand
you got my heart fighting a fever of 110

(chorus)
oh
mister, mister, mister, mister
mystery man
are you a foe
I wanna know
or a friend

tell me
mister, mister, mister, mister
mystery man
are you a foe
I wanna know
or a friend

(verse iii)
now, charice more clever than what's his name, ben
said I bet he's got a thirsty urge a drink can't mend
and I'm a tall glass filled right to the brim
spending all my time trying to swoon over him

am I right
I am right
am I wrong
for how long
is it me
could be
is it him
I out on a limb

oh, no, no, no, no, no, no, no,
little ol' me
oh, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes
now I see

(chorus)
oh
mister, mister, mister, mister
mystery man
are you a foe
I wanna know
or a friend

tell me
mister, mister, mister, mister
mystery man
are you a foe
I wanna know
or a friend

oh
mister, mister, mister, mister
mystery man
are you a foe
I wanna know
or a friend

tell me
mister, mister, mister, mister
mystery man
are you a foe
I wanna know
or a friend
