You talk about crazy affairs
You talk about your life as though it really mattered
You get attention 'cause you block the stairs
Bragging about some bottles you have shattered

Well I met a man who really lives
He really does it all
But what really matters is the heart he gives
He makes your talk seem small

When a man is a man, he doesn't act to a plan
He don't have to perform like John Wayne in some B feature flick
A man is a man, when he can offer his hand
Not afraid of appearing insane if he can't break a brick
I know a man who's a man

Can't you sometimes crack a smile?
Do you think if you did we would run and tell?
I know one day your big villain style
Will collapse as they turn the key in the door of your cell

I know a man who was once like you
But he opened his heart
No one is really bad right through
He's just another part

When a man is a man and he drinks 'til he's canned
He can drop to the floor, he can weep, we won't ask the price
A man is a man, he can fall he can stand
We won't love him more if he keeps his soul on the ice
I know a man who's a man

Every one of us is looking for fame
He's a looker, he's a dresser, he's a genius under pressure
I know a man who could tighten your rein
He's a father, he's a brother, he's a rocker, he's a lover

He's a man he's a man, he doesn't act to a plan
He don't have to get hitched to a train in some muscle beach trick
A man is a man, when he can offer his hand
Not afraid of appearing insane if he can't break a brick

Be a man who's a man
