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

Bo Diddley is the REAL American Bad Ass... many of Rock's greatest musicians and singers owe him a lot of their success... only George Thorogood has truly acknowledged Bo's greatness. "Bad to the Bone" is his salute to Bo Diddley's I'm a Man...

Mike Stidham

which serves to explain Bo's appearance in the "Bad to the Bone" music video...


I was just thinking that "Bad to the Bone" sounds just like it.

Samala Henry

Everytime I hear this song, I think of my father. He loved this song because of the way he pronounces man as, "Main." I love and miss you Daddy.

Lemon Dishonor

My uncle B Boy was like that. Always in a suit and hat.

Joshua Stephens

One if the best and most important rock and roll blues songs of all time!

"My nephew, Christopher.. was handling the garbage contract problem.

But on this, i will also not go into detail."

Peter Crowley

Flip side to Bo Diddley... the first record I ever bought (in '55, when I was 14yo).

Aleks Vitek

Cheers from Bulgaria, this is one of my favourite US songs

@S L I thought the only sausages they have are Italian and Jimmy Dean's...
