Comments

When first played the title was assumed to be 'Shufflemania' but that turned out to be the name of the album it would be released on and the track title was 'The Shuffle Man'

Lyrics

I sit out the window
I sit out the law
I’m gonna see what the Shuffle Man saw
Oh yes, oh yes, oh yes, oh yes, oh yes!

Stags are lit by gaslight
Stars are lit by jazz
I wanna have what the Shuffle Man has
Oh yes, oh yes, oh yes, oh yes, oh yes!

Don’t forget to function
Don’t be one of those
I’m gonna go where the Shuffle Man goes
Oh yes, oh yes, oh yes, oh yes, oh yes!

Ready for the bagels?
Ready for the hoot?
Ready to fly round the world in the Shuffle Man’s boot?
Oh yes oh yes oh yes oh yes oh yes

Oooh Shufflemania
Oooh

Do yourself a favour
Don’t forget the jam
You need an offering for the Shuffle Man
Oh yes oh yes oh yes oh yes oh yes

Got the picture?
Got the frame?
You wanna call me by the Shuffle Man’s name?
Oh yes oh yes oh yes oh yes oh yes

Shuffle Man is ritzy
Shuffle Man is rad
I wanna have what the Shuffle Man had
Oh yes oh yes oh yes oh yes oh yes
Oh yes oh yes oh yes oh yes oh yes

Oooh Shufflemania
Oooh Shufflemania

Money is the answer
To the question that you pose
I’m gonna know what the Shuffle Man knows
Oh yes oh yes oh yes oh yes oh yes

Money is the answer
So you say
I’m eating seaweed the Shuffle Man way
Oh yes oh yes oh yes oh yes oh yes

Oooh Shufflemania
