Warren Zevon – Mannish Boy lyrics

Written by Melvin London, Mckinley Morganfield, Ellis Mcdaniels
Arc Music Corp /Watertoons Music /Bmi

When I was a little boy
About the age of five
My Mama told me
I'd be the greatest thing alive
Now I'm a man
Way past twenty-one
Come on with me honey
We'll have lots of fun
I said mmm, aaaa, child, nnn
That represent man
That indicate I'm grown
But when I say "waaaannnngggggg"
That mean mannish boy

I see that woman
Standin' in that light
I'll make love to ya baby
For three hours tight
What nother man?

And when I shoots
Won't never miss
Make love to your cousin
She can't resist
I said, "mmm, aaa, child, nnn
That indicate "Man"
When I say "waaannnnggg"
That mean mannish boy

I'm a man
Hoochi Koochi man
Natural born lover's man
I'm a rollin' stone
I'm a rollin' stone
I'm a rollin' stone
I'm a rollin' stone
I'm a rollin' stone

Well I'm going down To Kansas soon
Bring back my second cousin Little John the Conkeroo
I say "MMM, AAA, child, NNN"
That indicate I'm grown
I'm a man
Hoochi Koochi man
Natural born lover's man
I'm a rollin' stone
I'm a rollin' stone
I'm a rollin' stone
