"Son Of Man" as written by and Phil Collins....
Oh, the power to be strong
And the wisdom to be wise
All these things will
Come to you in time
On this journey that you're making
There'll be answers that you'll seek
And it's you who'll climb the mountain
It's you who'll reach the peak

Son of Man, look to the sky
Lift your spirit, set it free
Some day you'll walk tall with pride
Son of Man, a man in time you'll be

Though there's no one there to guide you
No one to take your hand
But with faith and understanding
You will journey from boy to man

Son of Man, look to the sky
Lift your spirit, set it free
Some day you'll walk tall with pride
Son of Man, a man in time you'll be

In learning you will teach
And in teaching you will learn
You'll find your place beside the
Ones you love
Oh, and all the things you dreamed of
The visions that you saw
Well, the time is drawing near now
It's yours to claim in all

Son of Man, look to the sky
Lift your spirit, set it free
Some day you'll walk tall with pride
Son of Man, a man in time you'll be

Son of Man,
Son of Man's a man for all to see

    General Commenti cant understand why no1 has commented on most of tarzan songs lol ( or any of them.. duno ) i love these songss. love phil collins. most of these songs have a meaning, reguardless of what type of movie they wer from. telling the boy to slow down instead of rushing to be a man.. theres plenty of time to grow up.. live your life first!

    General CommentThis, despite being from Tarzan, is basically saying live life and have patience. Because all of what he'll learn to be a 'man' will come to him in time with patience and practice and he should enjoy childhood while he can.

    General CommentIn my opinion it is song about human weakness and overcoming it. You are not born strong, you are not born wise... but if you try hard enough, and are willing to progress, there is no way in the world that you won't reach your peak. It's all about devotion, patience, and faith.
    Oh, the power to be strong
    And the wisdom to be wise
    All these things will
    Come to you in time
    On this journey that you're making
    There'll be answers that you'll seek
    And it's you who'll climb the mountain
    It's you who'll reach the peak
