lyrics

When I'm a man
will I be a hunter
when I'm a man
will I be a slave
when I'm a man
will I be a father
when I'm a man
will I learn to behave?

Living ain't easy but there ain't no choice
scream out loud if you have a voice
take every chance be strong in your will
Don't listen to the man who tells you to kill

When I'm a man will I be a soldier
When I'm a man will I be a slave
when I'm a man will I be father
when I'm a man will I learn to behave?

Living ain't easy but there ain't no choice
scream out loud if you have a voice
take every chance be strong in your will
Don't listen to the man who tells you to kill

I saw you staring out the window
with a longing gaze upon your face
How long has your man been gone?
How many days since he went away?

I see your man has become a soldier
I see your man, he is so brave
I see your man has become a killer
I see your man has found his grave

Living ain't easy but there ain't no choice
scream out loud if you have a voice
take every chance be strong in your will
Don't listen to the man who tells you to KILL
