See the lonely man there on the corner What he's waiting for, I don't know But he waits every day now He's just waiting for something to show. And nobody knows him, and nobody cares 'Cause there's no hidin' place There's no hidin' place For you. Lookin' everywhere at no one He sees everything and nothing at all, oh When he shouts, nobody listens Where he leads, no one will go, oh. He's a lonely man there on the corner What he's waiting for, I don't know But he waits every day now He's just waiting for something to show.

Side b is the original version of "Submarine", which is also included on the "Archive set, for which it was extended, but faded out during the main theme.

Man on the Corner" from the "abacab" album was maybe Phil Collins& first attempt to write a song with lyrics about homeless people and poverty, some social themes that he was going to address in other songs like "Tell Me why" (from GENESIS& "We Can& Dance" album from 1991) and "Another Day in Paradise" (from his solo album "But Seriously. Submarine", in the side "B" of this single, is a good instrumental piece of music, but it is clear for me that it really was destined to be a "B" side of a single, because it sounds more like an improvised piece of music, with some slow Jazz-Rock drums by Collins and good musical atmospheres. But this kind of musical piece sounded a bit out of place in an album like "abacab", so maybe the main reason to record it was more to be a "filler" of a side "B" of a single than anything else.
