Ordinary Guy
Joe Bataan Lyrics


I can't move a mountain top
Everything's ordinary on my block

I don't drive a beautiful car
And I don't own an elegant home
'Cause I don't have thousands to spend
Or a seaside cottage for the weekend

I'm just an ordinary guy you left behind
Ordinary guy you left behind

Exclusive nightclubs are out of style with me
'Cause I don't associate with high society
I don't hang around playboy millionaires

I'm just an ordinary guy you left behind
Ordinary guy you left behind

Subways take me downtown
My apartment is my home
I spend the weekends with friends
Otherwise I'm alone

Walk hard
Pay me no mind
You're ashamed of me
You girl

Walk hard passing by
Don't you know that I'm not the guy
Moving non-stop
You can't see beyond my block

I'm never gonna let you go, girl
Never gonna let you go
Need love so badly

Lyrics 💕 enjoy

I don´t drive a beautiful car
And I don´t own an elegant home
I don´t have thousands to spend
Or a seaside cottage for the weekend
I´m just an ordinary guy
Afrofilipino average sort of guy
That´s what I am, ordinary guy
You left behind
Exclusive nightclubs are out of style with me
Cause I don´t a**ociate with high society
I don´t hang around playboy millionaires
I´m just an ordinary guy you left behind
Ordinary ordinary guy
Afrofilipino average sort of guy

Taxi´s take me downtown
My apartment is my home
I spend the weekends with my friends
Otherwise I´m alone
Don´t know much about psychology
My deegrees are in streetology
Ordinary ordinary guy
Afrofilipino average sort of guy

This one was on my Spotify Discover Weekly playlist, and good gracious, I was blown away. As a mixed race girl from the Philippines, I felt some pride swell up in the chorus. Haha ! But, compatriot pride aside, I love the soulfulness and grit in Joe's voice that works with the song. The percussion and drums also give me life here - delish. The keys too. Absolutely a gem !

Filipinos were have soul because our ancestors are black. Aetas and negrito tribe. We are beautiful people . Creole

The collaboration between Toro Y Moi and the matterson to remake this song is just endearing and beautiful tribute to Joe Bataan. I've never heard of this song before, but now, I'm LSS to it.

@Seph I didn’t even know that was an actual thing that happened until I read your comment just now! But now I am beyond stoked for it, thanks to your bit of info and letting us all know here. I love this song, and I so, so, so love Toro y Moi. I seriously can not wait to hear this, I’m gonna look it up ASAP because that just sounds like pure excellence.
