A) As the band The Spencer Davis Group, with Steve Winwood sang those infamous lyrics.

Now Amadeus says I am a MAN! Now I take umbrage with that. Exactly WHAT did he mean?

1) The literal context. Hmmmm. Last I checked, unless I'm a hermaphrodite...Nope I only have girly parts. No male parts to speak of.

2) Or could he mean..I am THE man? As in the 1960's coined political soci-economic ultimate society establishment negative label, of a removed corporate whitey who is down on his
Afro-American and hard working disenfranchised brothers?

3) Or is this the ultimate compliment? As in the infamous songs by James Brown, Muddy Waters, and Bo Diddley. Yes, then my brothers and sisters, it is INDEED a MAN'S Man world. And I am a MAN!

Discussions please.

(disclaimer: yes this is entirely saracastic and written LMFAO!)

If you've gotten offended by amadeus' post, remember he's a jerk. You rock, he sucks. If you pity him for his dumbness, don't waste your pity on that pile of sh*t. If you liked his post, you need to look for therapy. :-P


If you read my disclaimer I said this is entirely SARCASTIC and I this is an obvious DIG at his idiocy.

But I thought I'd make some humorous lemonade out of Amadeus' lemons.

..Steve Winwood With The Spencer Davis Group

http://www.stevewinwood.com/releases/SDG.im.man.full.html

I'm A Man – Steve Winwood
Well, my pad is very messy and there's whiskers on my chin
And I'm all hung up on music, and I always play to win
I ain't got no time for lovin' 'cause my time is all used up
Just sittin' 'round creatin' all that groovy kind of stuff

Well, I'm a man, yes I am, and I can't help but love you so
Well, I'm a man, yes I am, and I can't help but love you so

2) Bo Diddley, I'm A Man

3) Muddy Waters, version known as Mannish Boy

http://blueslyrics.tripod.com/lyrics/muddy_waters/mannish_boy.htm

Ooooooh, yeah, ooh, yeah

Everythin', everythin', everytin's gonna be alright this mornin'
Ooh yeah, whoaw
Now when I was a young boy, at the age of five
My mother said I was, gonna be the greatest man alive
But now I'm a man, way past 21
Want you to believe me baby,
I had lot's of fun
I'm a man

I sometimes enjoy I'm A Man of Spencer Davis Group...yeah, it's one of their brilliant songs.
I also like Muddy Waters's I'm A Man... i.e. Mannish Boy...it's great! I sometimes listen to it. And I love the way Freddie sang it in Glasgow '77... :)

Check this out. Song by DVDA (South Park's Creators Group) To Arlene about her *ahem* his new manhood.

Now You're A Man

Hey

What makes a man?
Is it the power in his hands?
Is it his quest for glory?
Give it all you've got,
to fight to the top
So we can know your story

Now you're a man

A man, man man
Now you're a man

A manny manny man
A man man man

You are now a man
You're a man
Now you're a man

Live it, Live it

What make a man?
Is it the woman in his arms?
Just cause she has big titties?
Or is it the way he fights every day?
....No, it's probably the titties

Now you're a man

A man, man man
Now you're a man-man

Man-man man-man man
Now you're a man

M-A-N, man
Man, man-man man
Now you're a man

Rockin song. Though you have to hear it
http://mattntrey.com/
go to Sounds and DVDA and look for the song.

Michael, you're the boy with all the leather hips
Sticky hair, sticky hips, stubble on my sticky lips
Michael, you're the only one I'd ever want
Only one I'd ever want, only one I'd ever want

Beautiful boys on a beautiful dancefloor
Michael, you're dancing like a beautiful dance whore
Michael waiting on a silver platter now
And nothing matters now

I'm a man with a one track mind,
So much to do in one life time(people do you hear me)
Not a man for compromise and where's and why's and living lies.

I Want It All By Queen!
