"What Is a Man?" as written by Johnny William Bristol and Doris Mc Neil....
A man can walk proudly,
Down in the street.
A man's not ashamed of what he believes.

He knows how to laugh,
He knows when to cry.
He knows it's best to live.
He's afraid to die.

What is a man,
What is a man?
What is a man,
What is a man?

A man searches,
For the key to success.
He'd rather be sure,
Than take a wild guess.

He knows how to love,
He knows how to hate.
He knows when to move.
He knows just when to wait.

What is a man,
What is a man?
What is a man,
What is a man?

A man can be angry,
& still hold his tongue
A man don't give up
Till the battle is won.

He knows how to win,
He's not ashamed to lose.
He knows his destiny
is his alone to choose

What is a man,
What is a man?
What is a man,
What is a man?
What is a man,
What is a man?
What is a man,
What is a man?
Just what is a man?

    General CommentMaybe this is how the songwriter feels about his own life, but this song is just speculation and generalization about everyone else. Obviously not all men or people are like this song says, because not everyone thinks the same way and cares about the same things. Or hopefully they don't. It would be scary if they did.
