This is a man's world
This is a man's world
But it wouldn't be nothing
Nothing without a woman or a girl
You see man made the car
To take us over the road
Man made the train
To carry the heavy load
Man made the electric light
To take as out of the dark
Man made the boat for the water
Like Noah made the ark
This is a man's man's man's world
But it wouldn't be nothing
Nothing without a woman or a girl

Man thinks about the little betty baby girl
And the baby boys
Man makes them happy
Cause man made them toys
And after man made everyhing
Everything he can
You know that man makes money
To buy from other men
This is a man's world
But it wouldn't be nothing
Nothing not one little thing
Without a woman or a girl

He's lost in the wilderness
He's lost in bitterness
