There's a man that comes to our house every single day Papa comes home and the man goes away Oh, Papa does the work and Mama gets the pay And the man comes around when Papa goes away The man who comes to our house, Mama thinks is nice He comes in the summer and he brings Mama ice Just a teeny weeny bit that soon melts away And he has to come back again later in the day There's a man that comes to our house every single day Papa comes home and the man goes away Oh, Papa does the work and Mama gets the pay And the man comes around when Papa goes away The man who comes to our house comes to mow the lawn He always seems to get here after Papa’s gone After he leaves the house, Mama says to me “You don’t have to tell your Pa everything you see” There's a man that comes to our house every single day Papa comes home and the man goes away Oh, Papa does the work and Mama gets the pay And the man comes around when Papa goes away The man who comes to our house drives a Cadillac He drives it round the corner and he parks it in the back Mama rushes to the door; he's right there to greet her With "Open up, honey, and let me check your meter" There's a man that comes to our house every single day Papa comes home and the man goes away Oh, Papa does the work and Mama gets the pay And the man comes around when Papa goes away The man who comes to our house isn't such a dope He climbs up on the porch and says, "I hope, I hope, I hope" You can tell that he's a salesman by the way he slips inside He never sells a single thing but walks out satisfied There's a man that comes to our house every single day Papa comes home and the man goes away Oh, Papa does the work and Mama gets the pay And the man comes around when Papa goes away The man who comes to our house comes to sell a brush He comes in a hurry but he goes out in a rush And after he has gone away, Mama's in a fret If she didn't get everything she thought she ought to get There's a man that comes to our house every single day Papa comes home and the man goes away Oh, Papa does the work and Mama gets the pay And the man comes around when Papa goes away The man who comes to our house comes to take the trash He’s tall, dark and handsome, with a little black moustache It's all a bit strange, because it always seems to me That he's much more familiar than a trashman ought to be There's a man that comes to our house every single day Papa comes home and the man goes away Oh, Papa does the work and Mama gets the pay And the man comes around when Papa goes away The man who comes to our house comes to bring the milk He walks right in the kitchen and he talks as smooth as silk I always have to hold his horse out by the gate Because the milkman stays so doggone long the horse don't want to wait There's a man that comes to our house every single day Papa comes home and the man goes away Oh, Papa does the work and Mama gets the pay And the man comes around when Papa goes away The man who comes to our house comes to fix the phone He brings his tools along with him, and he always comes alone And just before he leaves the house, I guess I ought to mention He goes upstairs to Mama's room and fixes her extension There's a man that comes to our house every single day Papa comes home and the man goes away Oh, Papa does the work and Mama gets the pay And the man comes around when Papa goes away The man who comes to our house, he's quite a jitterbug He cuts it on the carpet and he cuts it on the rug He cuts it in the hallway and he cuts it on the floor When Papa comes home he cuts it out the door There's a man that comes to our house every single day Papa comes home and the man goes away Oh, Papa does the work and Mama gets the pay And the man comes around when Papa goes away Now, when I grow up, I don't wanna be A plumber or a janitor, no sirree I won't be a doctor with an office downtown No, I'd rather be just a man that comes around There's a man that comes to our house every single day Papa comes home and the man goes away Oh, Papa does the work and Mama gets the pay And the man comes around when Papa goes away ++++++++++ As recorded by NAT GONELLA & HIS NEW GEORGIANS: There's a man who comes to our house every single day Papa comes home and the man goes away Oh, Papa does the work and Mama gets the pay And the man comes around when Papa goes away There's a man that comes to our house, he's very nice He comes in the summertime to bring Mama ice But the teeny-weeny little bit soon melts away And he has to come back later in the day There's a man who comes to our house every single day Papa comes home and the man goes away Oh, Papa does the work and Mama gets the pay And the man comes around when Papa goes away There's a man that comes to my house, he comes to take the trash In a little white jacket and a little black moustache Now it's all very strange, I don't mind telling you, but it always seems to me He's a little more familiar than a trashman ought to be There's a man who comes to our house every single day Papa comes home and the man goes away Oh, Papa does the work and Mama gets the pay And the man comes around when Papa goes away There's a man that comes to my house, he comes to bring the milk He walks right in the kitchen and talks as smooth as silk I always have to hold his horsey by the gate 'Cause he always stops so long, the horsey hates to wait There's a man who comes to our house every single day Papa comes home and the man goes away Oh, Papa does the work and Mama gets the pay And the man comes around when Papa goes away The man that comes to my house isn't such a dope He rings the bell, says "I hope, I hope, I hope" You can tell he is a salesman, the way he steps inside He nevers sells a single thing, but walks out satisfied There's a man who comes to our house every single day Papa comes home and the man goes away Oh, Papa does the work and Mama gets the pay And the man comes around when Papa goes away Now when I grow up, I don't want to be a plumber Or a drummer with Nat Gonella What for, what do I get, buttons, no sirree I don't want to be a doctor with an office uptown You know what I want to be I want to be the man what comes around, see Oh, he'd rather be just the man who calls around Oh, he'd rather be just the man who calls around The man comes around, Papa goes away Papa comes home, the man goes away The man comes around, Papa goes away Papa comes home, the man goes away +++++++++ As recorded by WILL OSBORNE & HIS SLIDE MUSIC: MALE VOICE: There's a man who comes to our house ev'ry single day Pappy comes
