From “The Darkest Part Of The Night” (1996)

by Bob Malone

Well you sure looked surprised to see me leaning on the bar
When you came in the door
On the arm of that cat I seen you with
A couple of times before
And you looked a little nervous as you introduced me
As your “old friend from out of town”
And I reached out to shake his hand
‘Cause I know he’s your husband
But he don’t know that I’m your man

Now I don’t mean to make you so uneasy
On your romantic evening out
I guess I’ll slip out the back before the dude starts wondering
What all your nervous laughter’s about
‘Cause all that itchin’ and a twitchin’s gonna blow your cover
And honey that ain’t hard to understand
‘Cause I know he’s your husband
But he don’t know that I’m your man

BRIDGE I
Now he’s the one that keeps you comfortable
But I’m the one that makes you squirm
He’s always there to keep you warm
But I’m the one you call when you need to burn…

You were relieved to see me leave but I do believe
I’ll hear from you in a day or two
You’ll say your husband’s working late at the office
And could I come by and do some work on you?
And I guess he don’t know that he’s doing me a favor
When he’s making all those business plans
‘Cause I know he’s your husband
But he don’t know that I’m your man

BRIDGE II
Now he ain’t got no nasty vices
And I got more than a few
But I think that he’d agree that out of all my bad habits
The worst one I’ve got is you…
