Lou Rawls – A Natural Man lyrics

You know, there was a time when, if someone told you to
Do somethin, you did it. Bam! Right on! No questions asked.
It was Yes, sir and Yes, mam. You never said no. You know? Huh.
But, you know, things are changing nowadays. It's a new day,
Babies. Folks want to take their own lives into their hands and
Make their own choices. No longer do they wanna go along with
The program cause everybody say it's right. You know what I mean?
Let me tell ya what I'm talkin about, ya see, cause...

I don't want no gold watch for workin fifty years from nine till five
A-while the boss is guzzling champagne and I'm beltin beer in some dive

Cause I want to be happy and free
Livin and loving for me
I want to be happy and free
Livin and lovin for me
Like a natural man
A natural man

Well now, I refuse to listen to peoples thinkin that I live too high
I'm gonna taste it now before my one life streaks on by

Cause I want to be happy and free
Livin and lovin for me
I want to be happy and free
Livin and lovin for me
Just like a natural man
I said a natural man

Well now, I tried to do what others say that I should do
They say that I should fit in, fool em, fake it, well
Those kinda dues just make me crazy and blue
Man, I just can't take it

So when ya see me walkin, wont ya notice that proud look in my eyes
My feet are on the ground and my soul is searchin for the sky

Cause I want to be happy and free
Livin and lovin for me
I want to be happy and free
Livin and lovin for me
Just like a natural man
A natural man
Just like a natural man
My feet are on the ground
My soul is searchin for the sky
Like a natural man
No more Yes, sir
No more Yes, mam
Huh, cause I'm a natural man
I'm a natural man
