about

Second Favorite Man is the debut single by Tight Pajamas, a Bay Area creative team whose sly and unpredictable songs peck and gnaw at the default mindset, challenging social and sexual mores.

Tight Pajamas is an eclectic collaboration between polymath musician Susie Davis, free-range writer Jeff Greenwald, and their odd menagerie of family and friends.

Like many artistic inspirations, Second Favorite Man came to life on a napkin. Jeff and Susie were enjoying hot sake in a Japanese restaurant when—while wistfully describing his unusual "poly" relationship—Jeff uttered the title line. Susie lit up, a pen was filched from the waiter, and (as the song says) "the rest is history."

Second Favorite Man
Music & Lyrics by Susie Davis and Jeff Greenwald

Well I met her at a party near the hot tub and the beer
Our connection sparkled like a crystal chandelier
Her playful smile and bedroom eyes put visions in my head
But then she introduced me to the man who shares her bed

I hung my head in sorrow and turned away to fill my plate
She said, “Hey Baby, don’t you look so sad – just ask me for a date!
My man and I just don’t subscribe to guilt or jealousy”
So I took her invitation, and the rest is history

I don’t care if my preacher and my friends don’t understand
Sometimes love works better with an extra ampersand
Well I know it ain’t perfect, but I’m taking it in hand
‘Cause she’s my favorite woman, and I’m her second favorite man.
She’s my favorite woman and I’m her second favorite man

I won’t pretend this kind of love is easy to achieve
But I’m crazy about Sharon, and I like her boyfriend, Steve
Now, we don’t go for threesomes, though there’s nothing wrong with that
But we share our beer and bourbon, and one frisky jungle cat.

I don’t care if my rabbi and my friends don’t understand
Sometimes love works better with an extra ampersand
Well I know it ain’t perfect, but I’m taking it in hand
‘Cause she’s my favorite woman, and I’m her second favorite man.
She’s my favorite woman and I’m her second favorite man

Now we’re cuddlin’ in her Camry, and I can’t believe my luck
I not only get to kiss her – we even get to …
buckle up our seatbelts, and drive into the future holding hands
My very favorite woman, with her second favorite man.
My very favorite woman, with her second favorite man.
