"Family Man" as written by Maggie Reilly, Mike Fry, David Brough Pert-morris, Timothy Kjell Cross, Eddie Fenn and Michael Gordon Oldfield....
Walk down this road
When the road gets rough
I fall down
I get up
I am what I am
A family man
I am what I am
A family man
Mother, father, brother
Mother, father, brother
Walk down this road
In the cool of the night
Don't know what's wrong
But I do know what's right
I am what I am
A family man
I am what I am
A family man
Mother, father, brother
Mother, father, brother
I am what I am
A family man
I am what I am
A family man
Mother, father, brother
Mother, father, brother

    General CommentI love this song. However, whenever I recommend it to anyone, they end up disliking it.

    The song is about being devoted to and taking responsibility for your family.

    My OpinionThe lyrics of the song don't say much but the musical arrangement just feels like cocaine, the contrast between the music and the text does the work for me

    General CommentI don't think Lindsey had a child quite yet when this was written. It was on the 1987 Tango in the NIght album and also on their compilation album The Very Best of Fleetwood Mac. This song is perfectly fine to skip, it's annoying.
