Neil Diamond – I'm A Man lyrics

I'm a man
And I just want to live like one
Why must I fight for what I've won
I'm weary
And it's more than I can stand
I'm a man

I wanna hold my head up high
I'm flesh and blood and I got pride
Can't they see it?
Will they ever understand
I'm a man

How do I hide the tears in my eyes
When I go to tell my son
The things he's heard
Are no more than lies
He's as good as anyone
I'm a man

And soon the day is gonna come
When I'll be free to live like one
Then I'll stand tall
And be seen for what I am
I'm a man
I'm a man
I'm a man
