A Man Is A Man








 You talk about crazy affairs
Dm C G D C | G D C |
You talk about your life as though it mattered
 You get attention 'cos you block the stairs
 Bragging about some bottles you have shattered
Well, I met a man who really lives
 He really does it all
 But what really matters is the heart he gives
 He makes your talk seem small  
When a man is a man 
He doesn't act to a plan  
He don't have to perform like John Wayne in some B-feature flick
                                  When he can offer his hand  
Not afraid of appearing insane if he can't break a brick
G D C | G D C (intro pattern)
I know a man who's a man
Can't you sometimes crack a smile
Do you think if you did, we would run and tell
I know one day your big villian style
Will collapse as they turn the key in the door of your cell
I know a man who was once like you
But he opened his heart
No one is really bad right through
He's just another part
When a man is a man
And he drinks 'til he's canned
He can drop to the floor, he can weep, we won't ask the price
 He can fall, he can stand
We won't love him more if he keeps his soul on the ice
I know a man who's a man
   Every one of us is looking for fame
He's a looker
He's a dresser
He's a genius under pressure
   I know a man who could tighten your rein
He's a father
He's a brother
He's a rocker
He's a lover
He's a man, he's a man
He doesn't act to a plan
He don't have to get hitched to a train in some muscle beach trick
 When he can offer his hand
Not afraid of apprearing insane if he can't break a brick
Be a man who's a man
