If you want a lover
I’ll do anything you ask me to
And if you want another kind of love
I’ll wear a mask for you
If you want a partner, take my hand, or
If you want to strike me down in anger
Here I stand
I’m your man

If you want a boxer
I will step into the ring for you
And if you want a doctor
I’ll examine every inch of you
If you want a driver, climb inside
Or if you want to take me for a ride
You know you can
I’m your man

Ah, the moon’s too bright
The chain’s too tight
The beast won’t go to sleep
I’ve been running through these promises to you
That I made and I could not keep
Ah, but a man never got a woman back
Not by begging on his knees
Or I’d crawl to you baby and I’d fall at your feet
And I’d howl at your beauty like a dog in heat
And I’d claw at your heart, and I’d tear at your sheet
I’d say please (please)
I’m your man

And if you’ve got to sleep a moment on the road
I will steer for you
And if you want to work the street alone
I’ll disappear for you
If you want a father for your child
Or only want to walk with me a while across the sand
I’m your man

If you want a lover
I’ll do anything you ask me to
And if you want another kind of love
I’ll wear a mask for you

It was raining hard in 'Frisco
I needed one more fare to make my night
A lady up ahead waved to flag me down
She got in at the light

“Oh where you going to, my lady blue
It’s a shame you ruined your gown in the rain”
She just looked out the window
She said, “Sixteen Parkside Lane”

Something about her was familiar
I could swear I’d seen her face before
But she said, “I’m sure you’re mistaken”
And she didn’t say anything more

It took a while, but she looked in the mirror
And she glanced at the license for my name
A smile seemed to come to her slowly
It was a sad smile, just the same

And she said, “How are you Harry?”
I said, “How are you Sue?
Through the too many miles and the too little smiles
I still remember you.”

It was somewhere in a fairy tale
I used to take her home in my car
We learned about love in the back of the Dodge
The lesson hadn’t gone too far

You see she was gonna be an actress
And I was gonna learn to fly
She took off to find the footlights
And I took off to find the sky

Oh, I’ve got something inside me
To drive a princess blind
There’s a wild man, wizard
He’s hiding in me, illuminating my mind.

Oh, I’ve got something inside me
But it’s not what my life’s about,
Cause I’ve been letting my outside tide me
Over 'till my time, runs out

Baby’s so high that she’s skying
Yes she’s flying, afraid to fall
I’ll tell you why baby’s crying
Cause she’s dying, aren’t we all

There was not much more for us to talk about
Whatever we had once was gone
So I turned my cab into the driveway
Past the gate and the fine trimmed lawns

And she said we must get together
But I knew it’d never be arranged
And she handed me twenty dollars for a two fifty fare
She said, “Harry, keep the change.”

Well another man might have been angry
And another man might have been hurt
But another man never would have let her go
I stashed the bill in my shirt

And she walked away in silence
It’s strange how you never know
But we’d both gotten what we’d asked for
Such a long, long time ago

You see she was gonna be an actress
And I was gonna learn to fly
She took off to find the footlights
And I took off for the sky

And here, she’s acting happy
Inside her handsome home
And me, I’m flying in my taxi
Taking tips and getting stoned

I go flying so high, when I’m stoned

Look at the world I have conquered,
I’ve won every spin of the wheel.
I get everything I go after,
They ask me how does it feel.
I tell them that I’d trade the moon
For a string with an orange balloon,
And the days when my only dream
Was a dish of vanilla ice-cream.
Give me one more chance at the midway,
Let me laugh and be gay as a clown,
Give me back the world I remember,
One more ride on the merry go round.

I do my shopping in Paris,
My clothes are Cardin and Dior.
There’s money to buy friends and lovers,
Well, isn’t that what it’s for?
But when I go to my bedroom
And stare at my handpainted sky
I think of a world far behind me,
A world that my money can’t buy
Give me one more chance at the midway,
Let me dance with my feet off the ground.
Give me back the world I remember,
One more ride on the merry go round.

Now that I stare at the future,
I feel so close to the past.
I’m so afraid of tomorrow,
Wondering which one is the last.
Here in the cold of December,
I cling to a fragment of May.
I’ll trade you the world I have conquered
For a moment of one yesterday.
Give me one more chance at the midway,
Stop the clock from spinning around.
Give me back the world I remember,
One more ride on the merry go round.
La la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la,
Give me back the world I remember,
One more ride on the merry go round
