ABBA - Man In The Middle Lyrics




Did you see that man in the limousine
With the pretty doll, he is fifty and the girl's only seventeen
But she doesn't care, and she never will
If he's ninety-five she don't give a damn
Just as long as he pays the bill

Did you see that man with a fat cigar
He just left his lovers with a belly full of lobster and caviar
He can choose the wine from a vintage year
He will drink champagne in his limousine
Where the rest of the street can peer

'Cause he's the man in the middle, never second fiddle
Just like a spider in a cobweb
Hard as a hammer, not the kind of boss you double-cross
'Cause he's the man in the middle, knows the way to diddle
He's never bothered by his conscience
Deals with the Devil, 'cause he wants to be
Man in the middle, the middle, the middle
In the middle (in the middle, in the middle...)

But you see that man made a big mistake
Even though he's got all his servants and a mansion beside a lake
And the money too, all that he can spend
He can buy the most, nearly anything
But he can't buy the lot, his friend

'Cause he's the man in the middle, never second fiddle
Just like a spider in a cobweb
Hard as a hammer, not the kind of boss you double-cross
'Cause he's the man in the middle, knows the way to diddle
He's never bothered by his conscience
Deals with the Devil, 'cause he wants to be
Man in the middle, the middle, the middle
In the middle (in the middle, in the middle...)

ABBA Man In The Middle Comments
  1. Nicholas Foreman

    And let’s not forget English is not their first language. ABBA get better with age.

  2. Helvett222

    I had this original record at home - a great song I like today much more than I did years ago

  3. Daniel K.

    Ich liebe ABBA deswegen, weil sie auch solche Songs produziert haben. Sie sind ohnehin als Gruppe unglaublich abwechslungsreich. Locker konnten sie auch einen solch funky Song schaffen. Wenn die Damen nicht so prägnant im Refrain wären, glaubt keiner, dass das ABBA sind.

    N-Bahner 2005

    Sehe ich genau so. Überhaupt ist das ganze Album geil. Und Intermezzo No.1 setzt dem ganzen die Krone auf. :-)

    Saphira Jack

    ABBA war die beste Band die ich kenne ♥️

  4. Kris A

  5. Juan Kasper

  7. jerryonspeed

    The sax-soloo is awesome!

  8. Owen Reese

    it's funny, Bjorn must be talking about himself on the album cover.

  9. Sebastián Matías Zmener

    Yeah, it's funkier than My Mamma Said, but not so good as that. This song is so obvious! Something rare in ABBA.

  10. Dylan Arthur

    Perfect example of Mr. Ulvaeus kissing up to Swedish Social Democrats.

  11. Dylan Arthur

    Probably ABBA's funkiest track.
