Hey! yeah, yeah. Uh huh.

Bustin' ass all day
Just to put food on the table.
And I always will for as long as I am able.
Done all I could,
Ev'rything that a man should do.
Still they refuse to call me,
Call me what I am. Hey!

Do you know what it takes to be a man?
Don't take a whole lots of money,
Diamond rings upon your hand, no.
That ain't what it takes to be a man.
Do right by the ones you love,
Always give a helpin' hand. Yes, I do.

Now I've been through it all
Seen the good, the bad, the ugly.
Always take care of my share of responsibilities.
Now, just because I grow my hair
And play in a rockin' band,
Old folks are always telling me,
"Boy, why don't you grow up
And be a man." Hey!

I know what it takes to be a man.
It ain't the way you look
Or the clothes that you wear.
That ain't what it takes to be a man.
Do right by the ones you love,
Always lend a helpin' hand.

I know I got what it takes,
I know I got what it takes to be a man.
So go ahead and say what you will.
Because I know what I am,
Just what I am. Ow!

Alright. Ow! Hey!

I know what it takes to be a man.
I've got what it takes
And you know I know what I am.
I know what it takes to be a man.
So go ahead, say what you will
'Cause I know what I am.
I'm a man.
Hoo hoo hoo hoo. I'm a man.
I know I got what it takes,
I know I got what it takes, ow!
