Chicago – I'm A Man lyrics
Written by Stevie Winwood and Jimmy Miller
Lead Vocals by Terry Kath, Peter Cetera and Robert Lamm

(Terry:)
Well my Daddy sent a message
'bout the whiskers on my chin
Never had no problems
'cause I've always paid the rent
I got no time for lovin'
'cause my time is all used up
I spend that time creatin'
For some groovy kinds of love

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

(Peter:)
If I had my choice of matter
I'd rather be content
Being closer to the chatter
Than where your mind is at
While relating to each other
How strong your love will be
'cept that only sometimes
Groovy chicks you see

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

(Robert:)
I've got to keep my image
While I'm standing on the floor
If I drop upon my knees
It's just to keep her on my nose
You think that I'm not human
And my heart is made of stone
But I've never had no problems
And my body's pretty strong

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
I'm a man, yes I am, and I can't help but love you so
Man, yes I am, and I can't help but love you so
Oh God I love you so, I love you so

(Peter:)
If I had my choice of matter
I'd rather be content
Playing closer to the chest
Knowin' where your mind is at
While relating to each other
How good your love can be
Resisting only sometimes groovy chicks you see

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

(Robert:)
I gotta keep my image
While I'm standin' on the floor
If I drop upon my knees
It's just to keep them on my nose
You think that I'm not human
And my heart is made of stone
But I never had no problems
And my body's pretty strong

I'm a man, yes I am, and I can't help but love you so
Man, yes I am, and I can't help but love you so
Man, yes I am, and I can't help but love you so
Man, yes I am, and I can't help but love you so
