I'm a Man
Fabian Lyrics

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

Now I'm a man, Made twenty-one.
You know, baby,
We can have a lot o?fun.
I'm a man.
I spell M. A. N. man.
Ah, ah, ah, ah,
All you pretty women
Stand in line.

I can make love to you, baby,
In an hour's time.
I'm a man,
Spelled M. A. N. Man.

While he was not in same league as Elvis, Jerry Lee, Roy O, etc he still made some good songs. To date, Fabian has sold over 12 million albums and singles world-wide, not to be sniffed at!

I was so in love with Fabian...his songs were fun, and reminds me of my silly times long ago ...great memories waiting for my dates to meet my father...thanks for sharing!


His first, and probably his best. He always had great production, but was severely limited by his vocal range


thank you for people who are generous in helping others to show their talents..he was in North to alaska so good.


Fabian had some nice 'gravel' in his voice!..when he wanted to... He's right on the mark on this one.. Good delivery...!

Contains the great line: "I may be young and I still go to school, but when it comes to chicks I'm no 'poor little fool'. ('Poor LIttle Fool' was Ricky Nelson's song.) Great photos, nice editing job.


Oh! This one was a great hit in Germany for TED HEROLD I think in 1959 as well, so apparently the German version was released shortly after the English original. But I think without the Internet and all that, I would never have found out who sang the original! AFAIR it was only known to real connoisseurs.


On this day in 1958 {December 12th} Fabian performed "I'm A Man" on the Dick Clark ABC-TV weekday-afternoon program, 'American Bandstand'...
Exactly one month later on January 12th, 1959 the song enter Billboard's Top 100 chart at position #79, four weeks later it would peak at #31 {for 2 weeks} and it spent ten weeks on the Top 100...
Between January 1959 and October 1960 he had ten records on the Top 100 chart, three made the Top 10 and all three peaked in 1959, "Turn Me Loose" {#9 for 2 weeks}, "Tiger"* {#3 for 2 weeks}, and "Hound Dog Man" {#9 for 1 week, in the last week of 1959}...
Fabian, born Fabiano Anthony Forte, will celebrate his 75th birthday come next February 6th {2018}...
* And from the 'For What It's Worth' department, for the two weeks that "Tiger" peaked at #3, for those two weeks the #1 record was "Lonely Boy" by Paul Anka and at #2 was "The Battle of New Orleans" by Johnny Horton...


This is a great song by Fabian singing in key of D minus….. guy is so cute…. my favourite Fabian song….  


This was the very first 45 I owned (my parents got it for me). What memories. Thanks for the post.
