There's a man who leads a life of danger 
To everyone he meets he stays a stranger 
With every move he makes another chance he takes 
Odds are he won't live to see tomorrow 
 
Secret agent man, secret agent man 
They've given you a number and taken away your name 
 
Beware of pretty faces that you find 
A pretty face can hide an evil mind 
Ah, be careful what you say 
Or you'll give yourself away 
Odds are you won't live to see tomorrow 
 
Secret agent man, secret agent man 
They've given you a number and taken away your name 
 
[Lead guitar] 
 
Secret agent man, secret agent man 
They've given you a number and taken away your name 
 
Swingin' on the Riviera one day 
And then layin' in the Bombay alley next day 
Oh no, you let the wrong word slip 
While kissing persuasive lips 
The odds are you won't live to see tomorrow 
 
Secret agent man, secret agent man 
They've given you a number and taken away your name 
 
Secret agent man
