When is a boy a man?
When can he stand with the world in his hand?
And say hey
Break me if you can
I'm a man, I'm a man

My mother she tells me I'm too young to roam
But sooner or later I've got to leave home
A boy has a right to go out on his own
And show the world that he's a man

When is a boy a man?
When can he stand with the world in his hand?
And say hey
Break me if you can
I'm a man, I'm a man

My youth is a prison but I'll find the keys
So I can escape and be free as a breeze
I'll thank the good Lord then I'll do as I please
And show the world that I'm a man

My future's-a-calling, I'll answer the call
The world's gonna fight me, but I'll never crawl
I'll be a giant who's 20 feet tall
And show the world that I'm a man

Some day I'll be a man
Some day I'll stand with the world in my hand
And say hey
Now you understand
I'm a man, I'm a man

I'm a man, I'm a man, I'm a man
