"I Wanna Be Your Man" as written by and Shakespeare/bonner/taylor/willis/dunbar....
I want to be your lover baby,
I want to be your man,
I want to be your lover baby,
I want to be your man.
Love you like no other baby,
Like no other can,
Love you like no other baby,
Like no other can.

I want to be your man, I want to be your man,
I want to be your man, I want to be your man.

Tell me that you love me baby,
Let me understand,
Tell me that you love me baby,
I want to be your man.
I want to be your lover baby,
I want to be your man,
I want to be your lover baby,
I want to be your man.

I want to be your man, I want to be your man,
I want to be your man, I want to be your man.

I want to be your lover baby,
I want to be your man,
I want to be your lover baby,
I want to be your man.
Love you like no other baby,
Like no other can,
Love you like no other baby,
Like no other can.

I want to be your man, I want to be your man,
I want to be your man, I want to be your man.
I want to be your man, I want to be your man.

    General CommentOne day, before the Rolling Stones went to their tryouts for some record company, they asked the Beatles "Do you have any good songs?" and they said "yeah," and gave them this song. It was the first song that got them on the charts, I believe.

    General Comment'We sort of played it roughly to them [Rolling Stones] and they said, 'Yeah, OK, that's our style.' But it was only really a lick, so Paul and I went off in the corner of the room and finished the song off while they were all still sitting there talking. We came back, and that's how Mick and Keith got inspired to write... because, 'Jesus, look at that. They just went in the corner and wrote it and came back!' You know, right in front of their eyes we did it. So we gave it to them. It was a throw-away. It shows how much importance we put on them. We weren't going to give them anything great, right? I believe it was the Stones' first record'

    John Lennon said that about the song in 1980, I think.

    General CommentI fell in love with this song when I heard it on the anthology movie. I like their version better than the Stones version, and pretty much all the songs sung by Ringo have a soft-spot in my heart. John is my fave, but Ringo rocks my socks!

    General CommentYeah, anything Ringo sings is up there on my list. :D
    But..I do like the Stones' version a lot. Very different, yet it's the same song.

    General CommentI agree w/ doublexfantasy, with the exception of yellow submarine, too many posers listen too it, and it's not a very good song

    General Commentpants, THANK YOU!!! That's the exact reason why 'Yellow Submarine' has been spoiled for me!!
    'Course, I always ask them what part of the movie was their favorite. ^^ They never have a good answer.

    General CommentThis song is the answer to the people who seem to think Ringo was bad. Fucking destroying his drumset and singing at the same time, without you hearing any panting in the background, and he played it live a number of times. Basically, Ringo fucking rapes all of you.
