Mannish Boy
Jimi Hendrix Lyrics

Oh yeah
Everything's gonna be alright this morning

Hey, when I was a young boy
At the age of five
I have fever in my pockets
keep a lot of folk alive
Now I'm a man, I made twenty-one
You know baby, we have whole lots of fun
Because I'm a man, spell them
Hey child, man boy
And be, oh why?
Now representing daddy's boy
Like a rolling stone

Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo, ooh doo doo ooh ooh ooh
Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo, ooh ooh oohooh ooh ooh ooh ooh

Now, all you pretty women
Standing around
I'll make love to you, baby
And all this time
The line I shoot
Will never miss
See the way I make love to you
You just can't resist
'Cause I'm a man
Girl, I'm a man
Man child
Man boy
And I represent man
Come around to the beat
Oh I, I said daddy's boy

Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo, doo doo doo doo
Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo

Yeah, 'cause I'm a man
'Cause I'm a man, baby
Yeah I'm a man, baby
No child

Stand on the side
With me and my maid
We made the moon, honey
Came up to ours, babe
Now my baby's standing
The beat in our hand
Say oh baby, uh huh
You're my desire
'Cause I'm a man
Real man
Man child, baby
Man boy
I represent man
Be old
Why child?
I represent this mannish boy

Hey, 'cause I'm a man
I said I'm a man
Yeah I'm a man
Said I'm a man

Jimi Hendrix was not from around this part of the galaxy. You could tell just by the way he talked and carried himself. Such an aura of peace and wisdom encompased his presence that everyone could tell that he we something special, even before he picked up his guitar. When he did he changed the world, he left the best of the best flabbergasted. Every guitarist of the time wanted a piece of his inspiration. He could paint pictures of a place, for those that have eyes to see it, so detailed and strange that no painting could do it justice. Not everyone gets hendrix but for those of us that do, there has never been nor ever will be a person so able to convey his vision the psychedelic experience.




Hendrix was so special
because is was a Native/African American
every white American wants to destroy
he had to go out of his own country
just to be praise in England😥😇✊✌💯

I have 15 year old beginner guitar students who love Jimi, and find his simple style/ pentatonic riffs easy to learn. He is over rated.
