Woah, Jocko, don't expect me
To come out drinking, messing around.
Spending my time with a bunch of crazy people.
Yes, I been there before,
I don't need to go back no more.
I'm just a family man, like it or not,
I am a family man.
I'm a-holding onto what I've got.
I'm a family man,, right by damn.
Finally, find out what I am is a family man.

And don't expect me to hit the road
At a moment's notice without my suitcase
With some crazy bunch of strangers
In some unknown car,
Well, I'm just not willing to go that far.

The life I used to lead was a little too frantic. I guess I just got eyes to grow old and grey.
And if what I have in mind isn't super romantic,
I guess I always saw myself this way,
I'm just a family man, like it or not,
Said I'm a family man, holding onto what I've got,
I'm a family man, right by damn,
I finally, find out what I am is a family man.

Sears and Roebuck.
Howard Johnson.
Colonel Sanders.
Station wagon.
Briggs and Stratton.
Second mortgage.
If I can ever lose my blues.
Walk on over and turn on the TV.
What I'd like to do is
Lie down on the sofa later on.
I might walk my dog, baby.
Bo Diddley's a family man.
