Thread Name: Lyr Req: There's a Man that Comes to Our House
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: The Man That Comes To Our House
This is a song that my father sang when I was a kid in the late 40's. I have three verses and a chorus. Does anyone have any more? I seem to remember that he sang a lot of verses.


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.

Oh, the man that comes to our house, he comes to bring the milk.
He comes up to the door and he talks as smooth as silk.
I always have to hold his horse outside the gate.
And the man he stays so doggone long and the horse don't wanna wait.

Oh, the man that come to our house, he comes to bring the ice.
He walks right in the kitchen and he talks so awful nice.
But the little piece of ice he brings soon melts away,
And the man he has to come again later in the day.

When I grow up, I don't wanna be
A doctor or a lawyer. No siree.
Don't want a fancy car or an office in the town.
I just wanna be the man that comes around.
