Thanks!

There's a guy (sung by Lucy Wainwright Roche & Suzzy Roche)

There's a guy in red (sneakers)
Lives in this place
(yes) dark brown eyes
(and at all baby-face)
he wears a (backwards) baseball cap
(I tiptoe around) (when he takes a nap)
Over there his socks on the chair
(On the back of the door) (?) his underwear
He's (sixty) years' old
(and works) like (?)
He's a man (of) few words
(and) thinks out of the box
He likes to eat cookies
And drink cheap champagne
He washes the windows
And (unclogs the drain)
(?) take the garbage (?) (brown) (?)
He's braver than (Tarzan?)
(Frightened of mice)
It's been twenty (and some) years
(we've?) (?)
In this apartment
Somewhere downtown
At times people ask me
What's up with us
The question (?) by me
Like (?)
You think by now I know (?)
But I probably fail
(?)
When he walks in the room
He never says hi
Just opens the door
(And) (?)
He only (?) never (?)
And I laugh aloud
(At most) (of his) jokes
I don't understand
But oh never mind
(If there's) (one thing) (about him)
He's kind
I have my (troubles)
I have my (mojo?)
I go up and down
Like a child (?)
One thing is for sure
There's no place like home
Especially when you (?)
Someone (will can be) explain (?)
Who picks up your heart
When it falls on the ground

There's a guy in red (sneakers)
Lives in this place
(yes) dark brown eyes
(and at all baby-face)

Here you go:


THERE'S A GUY
As recorded by Lucy Wainwright Roche & Suzzy Roche on "Mud & Apples" (2016)

There's a guy in red sneakers
Lives in this place
He has dark brown eyes
And an old baby-face
He wears a backwards baseball cap
I tiptoe around when he takes a nap
Over there his socks on the chair
On the back of the doorknob, his underwear

He's sixty years' old
And works like an ox
He's a man of few words
Who thinks out of the box
He likes to eat cookies
And drink cheap champagne
He washes the windows
And unclogs the drain
Won't take the garbage out, won't eat brown rice
He's braver than Tarzan,
Frightened of mice

It's been twenty and some years
We've rattled around
In this apartment
Somewhere downtown
At times people ask me
What's up with us
The question goes by me
Like wizard dust
You'd think by now I'd know who he is
But I probably fail
If there were a quiz

When he walks in the room
He never says hi
Just opens the door
And sings the word "why"
He only eats egg whites
Never the yolks
And I laugh out loud
At most of his jokes
I don't understand him
But oh never mind
If there's one thing about him
He's kind

I've had my troubles
I've had my mojo
I go up and down
Like a child's yoyo
One thing's for sure
There's no place like home
Especially when you live with a poem
Someone who can't be explained or pinned down
Who picks up your heart
When it falls on the ground

There's a guy in red sneakers
Lives in this place
He has dark brown eyes
And an old baby-face

I hear one line differently in verse 5:

Someone who can't be explained or pinned down
