Oh yeah, yeah

Now when I was a young boy at the age of 5
My mother said I'll be the greatest man alive
And now I'm a man, I'm over 21

You better believe me, baby, and I say we can have lots of fun

I'm a man
A man
Oh yeah

The line I shoot will never miss
The way I make love to you, baby, you just can't resist

Ain't that a man?
Spelled "M", "A", child, "N"
No "B", "O", child, "Y"
That spell mannish boy

I'm sitting on the outside, just me and my mate
I made the move, come up 2 hours late

I'm a full grown man, baby, Lord I say
Oh yeah, oh yeah

All you pretty women, stand in line
I make love with you, baby, in an hour's time
