Miguel has set up home
With a woman half my age
A half-wit in a leotard
Stands on my stage

The standards have fallen
My value has dropped
But don't shed a tear
Some walk like they own the place
Whilst others creep in fear

Try if you can
To walk like a man
But if you don't come near
You've got to fly like an eagle
Prowl like a lion in Africa
Leap like a salmon home from the sea
To keep up with me
You've got to walk like a panther tonight

The old home town just looks the same
Like a derelict man who has died out of shame
Like a jumble sale left out in the rain
It's not good
It's not right

The standards have fallen
My value has dropped
But don't shed a tear
Some walk like they own the place
Whilst others creep in fear

Try if you can
To walk like a man
But if you don't come near
You've got to fly like an eagle
Prowl like a lion in Africa
Leap like a salmon home from the sea
To keep up with me
You've got to walk like a panther tonight

Where did you leave your self respect
You like look like a reptile
Your house is a wreck
Your existence an insult
And stains that are suspect
Cover your clothes

The standards have fallen
My value has dropped
But don't shed a tear
Some walk like they own the place
Whilst others creep in fear

Try if you can
To walk like a man
But if you don't come near
You've got to fly like an eagle
Prowl like a lion in Africa
Leap like a salmon home from the sea
To keep up with me
You've got to walk like a panther tonight
Walk like a panther tonight
To keep up with me you've go
