alexthomasdavis – What One Man Can Do Another Man Can Do lyrics

This may have come to you
Out the blue
But what one man can do
Another man can do
It takes a broken man to fake a thousand smiles
Until he finally gets the sack

It takes a loving man to walk a thousand miles
Until he feels his love come back

Can I really play like hendrix
Can I really write like dylan
Can I really rhyme like marley
Can I really sing like lennon can

    This song was a bit of a steal, but I loved the sentiment so much I had to put it in a song. Its from a film (I forget the name) where Anthony Hopkins is being tracked by a grizzly bear. He remembers reading about how to kill it. Put a spear between two rocks then lure the bear on to the spear. He does this successfully, then states, What One Man Can Do Another Man Can Do! So this is true for most things, however, I would never be able to play like Hendrix or Maradonna, so maybe ..what do you think!?
