You try to put a tag on me, mama / You try to make out to be so good / You try to make love you like you think I should / You're hearin' stories 'bout me, baby / I'm not what you want me to be / Before you leave me, honey / I just want you to see / (chorus) / I am just what I am / I'm an ordinary man / If you love me, you'll understand / I'm an ordinary man / When we first met the fire was burning, girl / But now I'm tied to so many things / But I still love you, honey, please don't set me free / (chorus) / You went and left me all alone, baby / But I still want you, girl, to see / I'll always love you, honey, please come back to me / (chorus)
