Man Of The World Lyrics

Shall I tell you about my life
They say I'm a man of the world
I've flown across every tide
And I've seen lots of pretty girls

I guess I've got everything I need
I would't ask for more
And there's no one I'd rather be
But I just wish that I'd never been born

And I need a good woman
to make me feel like a good man should
I don't say I'm a good man
Oh, but I would be if I could

I could tell you about my life
And keep you amused I'm sure
About all the times I've cried
And how I don't want to be sad anymore
And how I wish I was in love

this is about being a man who has everything he could want except the love and companionship of a woman.

This song is my life. Except I'm a woman who is alone. This line really sums the song up so beautifully:

"how I wish I was in love."

Such a simple end to a simple beginning.

@webmasterdee I used to play and sing this song a lot when I was in a band years ago. I still play it from time too to ti me . I hope you found the love you were looking for.

For more than 40 years I've believed the final verse goes:

"And I need a good woman to make me feel like a good man should. I don't say I'm a good man Or that I would be if I could."

And to tell the truth I prefer my version of the final line.

I guess I've got everything I need I would't ask for more And there's no one I'd rather be But I just wish that I'd never been born

Such a heartfelt song, Green really nails it, he's been around the world and bagged more than his share but has no one to go home to at the end of the day.

Is Peter Green dead or alive? His wiki page said that he's still alive. :/

He's alive. If you were wondering about the comment by pennywinters, they're just talking about how they miss Peter Green's fleetwood mac
