I am an auditory man
I do not understand the optical machine
I am not present in the scene of being seen
I am an auditory man

I am a listening device
I hear what you’re saying you don’t have to tell me twice
I name the numbers from the rattle of the dice
I am a listening device

Oh but I am one for whom all sounds make sense
Sizzle of a steak and the rattle of the bones
Grandfather clocks tell tolling out like Big Bens
Ringing chime of power saws and diesel on the roll
Distant howl of hounds who answer sirens on patrol

I cannot she what dress she wore
I can’t even see the flowers hanging in the trees
Facial expressions to deny or to displease
I cannot see what dress she wore

Oh I am one for whom all sounds make sense
Big hall hollers and the noble saxophone
High bird callers and the voice that calls me home

I am an auditory man
I love you talking dirty on the telephone
I love to hear my baby make delicious moan
I am an auditory man
