or
Neal McCoy

Jerry he's a workaholic never made time for a family
He's dedicated to his gin and tonics but they don't give him what he needs
Joey he pays alimony to two wives in different towns
Tries to act like he ain't lonely but the single life will wear you down
As for me I'm no different from the rest
I've been comin' here ever since that woman left

Now it's every man for himself tonight
We're lookin' out for number one, tryin' to get on with our lives
And it's heart breakin' and it's soulachin'
When you got nobody else
So friends it's good to have ya here tonight
But it's every man for himself

In walks that long haired beauty, we're all prayin' she's unattached
I felt a chill go straight through me I've never seen a smile like that
I ain't worried ?bout Bill or Darryl, they're both wearin' wedding bands
The rest of us are fish in a barrel she could have her pick but I understand
She can't save us all from the lonely lives we lead
So bartender would you send her a drink and tell her it's from me

Now it's every man for himself tonight
We're lookin' out for number one, tryin' to get on with our lives
And it's heart breakin' and it's soulachin'
When you got nobody else
So friends it's good to have ya here tonight
But it's every man for himself

I'll be your shoulder friends
When you feel like givin' up
But if it ever comes down
To finding love

Now it's every man for himself tonight
We're lookin' out for number one, tryin' to get on with our lives
And it's heart breakin' and it's soulachin'
When you got nobody else
So friends it's good to have ya here tonight
But it's every man for himself
