lyrics

If you want to be a man
Be good to your mother
If you want to be a man
Try to love one another
If you want to be a man
Be true to your wife
If you want to be a man
You’ve got to treat her right
Spend time with your children
Open your mind and listen
If you want to be a man
If you want to be a man
Be an attentive lover
If you want to be a man
Get down and satisfy her
If you want to be a man
Learn how to dance
If you want to be a man
You’ve got to take a chance
Learn how to cook and do laundry
Don’t legislate a woman’s body
If you want to be a man
You can let your emotion show
Say goodbye to Mr. Macho
Admit when you’re wrong
So many gentle ways to be strong
You can cry and you can love
A man, woman, or the Lord above
It’s alright to be vulnerable
Protect the earth’s animals
And stop starting wars
That isn’t what we’re here for
No, that isn’t what we’re here for
If you want to be a man
Put down your gun
If you want to be a man
Make sure to teach your son
How to be a man
