I'm A Man
Bo Diddley Lyrics


Now when I was a little boy
At the age of five
I had somethin' in my pocket
Keep a lot of folks alive

Now I'm a man
Made twenty-one
You know baby
We can have a lot of fun

I'm a man
I spell m-a-n, man

All you pretty women
Stand in line
I can make love to you baby
In an hour's time

I'm a man
I spell m-a-n, man

I goin' back down
To kansas to
Bring back the second cousin
Little john the conqueroo

I'm a man
I spell m-a-n, man

The line I shoot
Will never miss
The way I make love to 'em
They can't resist

I'm a man
I spell m-a-n, man

Now when I was a little boy,
At the age of five,
I had somethin' in my pocket,
Keep a lot of folks alive.

Now I'm a man,
Made twenty-one,
You know baby,
We can have a lot of fun.

I'm a man,
I spell M-A-N, man.

All you pretty women,
Stand in line,
I can make love to you baby,
In an hour's time.

I'm a man,
I spell M-A-N, man.

I goin' back down,
To Kansas to
Bring back the second cousin,
Little John the conqueroo.

I'm a man,
I spell M-A-N...man.

The line I shoot,
Will never miss,
The way I make love to 'em,
They can't resist.

I'm a man,
I spell M-A-N, man.

I met him. Worked with him. Was to this day the best live gig I have ever seen. He sent me a bottle of homebrewed moonshine from his ranch as thanks - disguised as a wine bottle. Hehe. He was a legend. I will miss him.

This song is definitive proof of just how creative an artist George Thoroughgood really was.

@Winston Churchill i always understand Mannish Boy to be Muddy Waters ribbing Bo Diddley. Sot of a response to this track.

@Wessel van Santen mm

Winston Churchill

thielees Even if that’s true, this is by no means proof of it. First of all, I do believe that Hoochie Coochie Man by Muddy Waters came out before this, which if you listen to it is very similar. Muddy Waters also released Mannish Boy, which sounds even more similar to this song. Does that mean Muddy was a bad musician? I don’t think so, he’s my favorite blues musician!

Yep. "Bad to the bone" is a direct copy
