  • CHORUS
    Walk like a man, and talk like a man.
    Walk like a man, hey baby, you can call me your man.


    A little girl asked me what am I gonna' do,
    When I get old and blue and worn clear through?
    And I say by that time I ought to be in my prime,
    I'm gonna' strut like a cock until I'm ninety-nine.


    I'm gonna' ...
    CHORUS


    Sometimes I feel it's gettin' late.
    In life -- all that settlin' down can wait,
    'Till my routine days all seem the same.
    Right now, I've got to get on out, I've got to make my day.


    I'm gonna' ...
    CHORUS

    As everyone knows today, Farner and the boys are very religious and anti drug people, and they were so in the 70s.
    Protest Songs where the "right thing" and they took their chance, although them, denying today, they did this song to make guys "talk like a man"!.
