( Ex-convict song lyrics )
( THEY SAY HE'S )   A DIFFERENT MAN
( PRETTY BOY GETS OUT TODAY )
Copyright 2004 - MickTerry.com

6/8
The magnolia's bloomed 7 times since we've seen him.
The prison has bars made of steel for a reason.
They say he has changed. They say he is strange.
THEY SAY HE'S A DIFFERENT MAN.

The women won't find him as handsome and thrilling.
Each one that he'd had was compliant and willing.
Consensual, of course. There never was force.
THEY SAY HE'S A DIFFERENT MAN.

    Bar all the doors and lock all the shutters.
    Herd them inside: all your sisters and mothers.
    Watch out for your wives,
    'cause PRETTY BOY GETS OUT TODAY.
    Bar all the doors and bolt all the windows.
    The stories you've heard aren't just innuendo.
    No one is safe,
    'cause PRETTY BOY GETS OUT TODAY.

The men of the town made the fuss and the clamor
and trumped up the charges to give him the slammer.
He'd always proclaimed that he had been framed.
THEY SAY HE'S A DIFFERENT MAN.

But, now that he's out will he be seeking vengeance?
Or quietly go back to work tuning engines?
The townspeople pray that he'd just move away.
THEY SAY HE'S A DIFFERENT MAN.

    CHORUS

So, what do you do and regard as your choices?
Do you cringe at night and hear all kinds of noises?
And fear for your life or distrust your wife?
THEY SAY HE'S A DIFFERENT MAN.

So, where can you hide where you're safe from your conscience?
And where can you run so that peace has a good chance?
To brave it and stay or move far away?
THEY SAY HE'S A DIFFERENT MAN.

    CHORUS
