Well everybody knows down Ladbrook grove 
You have to leap across the street 
You can lose your life under a taxi cab 
You gotta have eyes in your feet 

You find a nice soft corner and you sit right down 
Take up your guitar and play 
But then the law man comes says move along 
So you move along all day 

Well I'm a one man band 
Nobody knows nor understands 
Is there anybody out there want to lend me a hand 
With my one man band 

For three days now I haven't eaten at all 
My my you must be getting so thin 
And soon my cap won't be large enough 
To drop a half a crown in 

So hey there mister don't you look so sad 
Don't look so ill at ease 
Well I can play you any song you like 
To cheer up that life you lead 

Well I'm a one man band 
Nobody knows nor understands 
Is there anybody out there want to lend me a hand 
With my one man band 

And oh oh oh look at the rain falling 
Oh oh oh look at it rain 
Oh look at it rain 

Well nobody sees the minstrel boy as he sings his tale of woe 
Nobody sees him coming 
Nobody see him go 
So hey there mister don't you look so sad 
Don't look so ill at ease 
Well I can play you any song you like 
To cheer up that life you lead 

Well I'm a one man band 
Nobody knows nor understands 
Is there anybody out there want to lend me a hand 
With my one man band 

Well I'm a one man band 
Nobody knows nor understands 
Is there anybody out there want to lend me a hand 
With my one man band 

Oh I'm a one man band 
Just a one man band 
Oh I'm a one man band
