Now when I was a little boy,  
At the age of five,  
I had somethin' in my pocket,  
Keep a lot of folks alive.  
 
Now I'm a man,  
Made twenty-one,  
You know baby,  
We can have a lot of fun.  
 
I'm a man,  
I spell m. a. n. - man.  
 
All you pretty women,  
Stand in line,  
I can make love to you baby,  
In an hour's time.  
 
I'm a man,  
I spell m-a-n - man.  
 
I goin' back down,  
To kansas to  
Bring back the second cousin,  
Little john the conqueroo.  
 
The line I shoot,  
Will never miss,  
The way I make love to 'em,  
They can't resist.
