Joseph's many coloured coat
Left him lyin' in the moat
He lived his life
As prince and slave
And in the end forgave
You wanna feel like a man
Then act like a man
You wanna be like a man
Then act like one yeah
You live your life
By bein' fair
You'll find that
Your strength lies there
For pigs and armies
Will fight in vain
Against a natural main
You wanna feel like a man
Then act like a man
You wanna be like a man
Then act like a man
The road of life
Is dark and steep
Sometimes it's like a
Nightmare creepin'
If you don't give for what you take
You may never wake
