A Man Is a Man  The Who









[G]You talk about c[Fadd9]razy affairs
Dm C G D C | G D C |
You talk about your life as though it mattered
[G]You get attention 'cos you [Fadd9]block the stairs
[Dm]Bragging about some [C]bottles you have [Fadd9]shattered
Well, [C]I met a man who rea[G/B]lly lives
[C]He really does it [Em]all
[C]But what really matters is the [G/B]heart he gives
[C]He makes your talk seem [D]small[Dsus4] [D]
When a [C]man is a [G]man[D]
He doesn't [C]act to a [Em]plan[D] [C]
He don't h[G]ave to perform like John [D/F#]Wayne in some B-feature [Fadd9]flick
[C] [G] [D] [A] [man] [is] [a] [man] When he can [C]offer his [Em]hand[D] [C]
Not af[G]raid of appearing in[D/F#]sane if he can't break a [Fadd9]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
[A]He[man] can[is] fa[a]ll[man], 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
[E] Every one of us is [D]looking for fame
He's a [A]looker
He's a dresser
He's a genius under pressure
[E] I know a man who could [D]tighten your rein
He's a [A]father
He's a brother
He's a [D]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
[A]Wh[man]en h[is]e c[a]an[man] offer his hand
Not afraid of apprearing insane if he can't break a brick
Be a [C]man who's a [G]man
