Mean Old Man (What You See Is What You Get)

 

If I look like a mean old man, that's what I am

If I look like a mean old man, that's what I am

If I look like a mean old man

Who'll do you any way he can

To break your heart and kiss your hand

That's what I am

 

And if I look like a good old friend, that's what I am

And if I look like a good old friend, that's what I am

If I look like a good old friend

Who's good at bending with the wind

To be your friend right to the end

That's what I am

 

****Chorus

         And if I look like a voodoo doll, that's what I am

         If I look like a voodoo doll that's, what I am

         If I look like a voodoo doll

         Who takes his licking standing tall

         Who'd rather bite you back than crawl

         That's what I am

 

If I look like your Uncle Bob, that's what I am

If I look like your Uncle Bob, that's what I am

If I look like your Uncle Bob

Who likes to slap your back and rob you

While he still can do the job

That's what I am

 

****Repeat Chorus
