"Mannish Boy" as written by and Ellas Mcdaniel Mckinley Morganfield....
Oh yeah, oh yeah.
Everything gonna be alright this mornin.

Now, when I was young boy,
At the age of five.
My mother said I would be,
The greatest man alive.
But, now I'm a man,
I made twenty-one.
I want you to believe me, honey,
We're havin lots of fun.

I'm a man,
I spell, m - a, chile, - n.
That well within man.
An ol' b - o, chile, - y.
That spell mannish boy.

I'm a man, I'm a full grown man.
I'm a man, I'm a rollin stone.
I'm a man, I'm a hoochie coochie man.

Sittin on the outside,
Was just me and my mate.
I made the move,
Come up two hours late.

Wa'n't that a man?
I spell, m - a, chile, - n.
That well within man.
An ol' b - o, chile, - y.
That spell mannish boy.

I'm a man, I'm a full grown man.
I'm a man, I'm a rollin stone.
I'm a man, I'm a full grown man.

Oh well, oh well...
