"I'm A Man" as written by Jimmy Miller and Steve Winwood....
Well my pad is very messy, got whiskers on my chin
Never had no problems 'cause I've always paid the rent
I got no time for lovin'
'Cause my time is all used up

I stand outside creatin'
All the groovy kinds of love
I'm a man, yes I am and I can't help but love you so
I'm a man, yes I am and I can't help but love you so

If I had my choice of matter
I'd would rather be with cats
All engrossed in mental chatter
Showing where your mind is at

While relating to each other
How strong the love can be
By resisting all the good times with each groovy chick we see

I'm a man yes I am and I can't help but love you so
I'm a man yes I am and I can't help but love you so
I've got to keep my image
While I'm standing on the floor

If I drop upon my knees
It's just to keep them on my nose
You think that I'm not human
And my heart is made of stone

But I've never had no problems
'Cause my body's pretty strong

I'm a man yes I am and I can't help but love you so
I'm a man yes I am and I can't help but love you so
I'm a man yes I am and I can't help but love you so

If I had my choice of matter
I would rather be with cats
All engrossed in mental chatter
Showin' where your mind is at

While relating to each other
How strong your love can be
By resisting all the good times with each groovy chick we see

I'm a man yes I am and I can't help but love you so
I'm a man yes I am and I can't help but love you so
I'm a man yes I am and I can't help but love you so

I gotta keep my image
While I'm standin on the floor
If I drop upon my knees
It's just to keep them on my nose

You think that I'm not human
And my heart is made of stone
But I never had no problems
'Cause my body's pretty strong
I'm a man, yes I am, and I can't help but love you so

Man, yes I am, and I can't help but love you so
Man, yes I am, and I can't help but love you so
Man, yes I am, and I can't help but love you so

    General CommentCatchy chorus - not too sure what the rest means [an intellectual type who falls in love despite himself?] - but a rocking arrangement and seriously good guitar solo.

    General CommentThis is one of the few (if not the only) songs that Chicago did not write. I can't remember the original writers, but it has been redone several times.

    My OpinionThis sounds like it would be really fun to perform. There's so much you can do with it.

    General CommentThe song was originally written by Steve Winwood and performed by Spencer Davis Group when Winwood was still with them.

    On a side note, I hate Steve Winwood haters. Ditto for Chicago haters.
