Quiet Man (Ray Dorset)
 
When the party's over the whiskey's all run dry
It's five o'clock in the morning the folks have said goodbye
Baby says she loves me the music's playing low
We're laying on the sofa having one last smoke
Sometimes I like relaxing sometimes I like to be a quiet man
 
When work has been quite heavy bin sweating all day long
It's great to take a shower a drink nice cool an' long
Catch the late night movie just my girl an' me
Take a little stroll no one on the streets
I like to take it easy sometimes I like to be a quiet man
 
MIDDLE
I like my share of ball games
Sometimes I like a fight
I really dig those nightclubs big sounds an' them strobe lights
An' cruisin' through the city with the radio up real loud
But sometimes I really dig to get away from all that crowd
 
When work has been quite heavy I've bin sweatin all day long
It's great to take a shower a drink nice cool an' long
Catch the late night movie just my girl an' me
Take a little stroll no one on the streets
I like to take it easy some times I like to be a quiet man
 
The weekends can be hectic when all the folks drop in
Especially when it's hot an' we bowl down to the beach
An' if you're going steady sometimes you want to pass
But it's good to stick together who knows how long it'll last
It's good to slow down sometimes it can be cool to be a quiet man
