"I'm Your Man" as written by Richie Mcdonald, Frank Meyers and Gary Baker....
I'm your man (I'm your man)
I'm your man (I'm your man)
It's so good that you can get it from my hand
I'm your man (I'm your man)

I'm your man (I'm your man)
I'm your man (I'm your man)
It's so good that this way hey
I'm your man (I'm your man), yes I am baby!

You've know them since age ten
What men can do babe
What they did for themselves
I'll do for you
It's so good that
Oh no, yeah
I'm your man (I'm your man)
I'm your man I'm your man I'm your man babe

You say the time, I can't wait
The place and the time and the date
Just tell me when, I can't wait
'Cause baby, oh no

If I seem unromantic
You're glad that I do babe
What you say to me proves I'm
More romantic than you
It's so good that
You're so glad that
I'm your man (I'm your man)
Yes I am, baby

I'm your man (I'm your man)
I'm your man (I'm your man)
It's so good that uh huh, yeah
I'm your man (I'm your man)

You say the time, oh babe you're on
I will serve you plates containing light, it's dawn
Retaining face and form my fingers linger on
'Cause baby oh, oh, oh, oh, oh no!

We'll talk about me babe, whaddaya see?
Before you talk I'm gonna get down on my knees
It's so good that you can get it from my hand
I'm your man, baby, I'm your man

    General CommentThis song always makes me think of male prostitution. With lines like "What men can do / what they do for themselves / I'll do for you," I definitely feel Hell's talking about men who pleasure themselves using a woman (or man) and he will now proceed to "give back to" this "sex object," in a sense.

    "If I seem unromantic / You're glad that I do / What you say to me proves / I'm more romantic than you."
    Many times, prostitutes and their clients try to detach themselves from the romantic aspects of sex, some prostitutes even refusing to kiss, as many consider it the most intimate sexual act. I think Hell's talking about how it's his job to have sex, making it an unromantic, automatic act, and his client simply wants to get off and doesn't have the passion and emotion Hell believes he himself poses.

    If I remember correctly, I think I've read somewhere that Hell was a male prostitute at one point. It would make sense; lots of New York punk junkies were back in the 70s.

    General CommentIt sounds to me like the singer/narrator is supposed to be a woman, trying to convince her male lover that she's as good as a man. It's as if he'd prefer to be with a man, and she's either an energetic substitute (presumably a prostitute), or perhaps just an eager girl trying to nudge a guy in a new (bisexual) direction with some friendly coaxing. Either way, she feels the need to keep reminding him to forget she's a woman just now, saying, over and over again, "I'm your man, baby, oh yeah, yes I am, I'm your man"... This kinda explains the constant references to getting it by hand, which is pretty much as androgynous as sex can get. Is there such a difference between the hand of a woman or man that it really matters?

    Whichever the case, I think the song is an oddly romantic, albeit ultra quirky and kinky, little number... It's beautifully constructed and passionately performed--simple and elegant--a real treasure from the early CBGB punk scene.
