Lyrics
I want to be, I got to be
I want to be, I got to be

I heard there was a future bride
Who will before your eyes
Oh, I guess I never knew
Yeah, what your woman's getting up to now

I want to be, I got to be
Man of the world
I want to be, I got to be
Man of the world
I want to be, I got to be
Man, man, man
I want to be, I got to be

I really tried to make ends meet
Keep your vow, turn off the streets
And I never wondered what you was feeling
All the time I was achieving and a stealing, yeah

I want to be, I got to be
Man of the world
I want to be, I got to be
Man of the world
I want to be, I got to be
Man of the world
I want to be, I got to be

And I tried to see the light
And I tried to turn back to fight
But all my friends that I was choosing, yeah
They were double dealers and a four time losers, yeah

I want to be, I got to be
Man of the world
I want to be, I got to be
Man of the world
I want to be, I got to be
Man, man, man

I want to be, I got to be
Oh, yeah

I want to be, I got to be
Man of the world

I want to be, I got to be
Man of the world

I want to be, I got to be
Man of the world
