Soul Ii Soul – Be A Man lyrics

Being a man don't mean you have to fight for honour
Being a man don't mean you got the right to all the
All the things that make your eyes grow open wide
Those things don't earn you true respect,
They are not a measure of your pride
It takes more strength sometimes to turn and walk away
When you feel like you got to prove that you're a man
And you don't play
Being a man isn't easy but please try to be a man

Being a man isn't measured by your way with women
I need a man who will stand by me
Through thick and thin cause
Any boy can make a child and disappear
And deny responsibilities crying on that life ain't fair
It isn't easy to stay on an raise a child
But you took the time to make a baby
Take the time to make a life
Being a man isn't easy but please try to be a man

Sometimes the things you've got to do they seem so wrong
No-one said that life was fair we all got to carry on
Being a man isn't easy but please try to be a man
