I'm A Man

Words & Music:

Steve Winwood & Jimmy Miller



Well, my pad is very messy, got whiskers on my chin.

Never had no problems cause I've always paid the rent.

I got no time for loving 'cause my time is all used up.

I stand outside creating all the groovy kinds of love.



      Eb           D        Db             Cm7

I'm a man.  Yes, I am and I can't help but love you so.

I'm a man.  Yes, I am and I can't help but love you so.


If I had my choice of matter, I would rather be with cats.

All engrossed in mental chatter, showing where your mind is at.

While relating to each other how strong the love can be.

By resisting all the good times with each groovy chick we see.




I've got to keep my image while suspended on a throne

That looks out upon a kingdom filled with people all unknown,

Who imagine I'm not human and my heart is made of stone.

And I've never had no problems and my body's made of stone.
