Not the Shadow of a Man

This song is by Malvina Reynolds.

I have learned I can stand
On my feet and all alone,
I'm a being of my own,
Not the shadow of a man,
Not the shadow of a man.

Well a man is something great
With his head against the sky,
Something to appreciate,
So is he, and so am I,
So is he and so am I.

Not the shadow of a man,
Not his heart nor his right hand,
Something special and apart,
Not the shadow of a man,
Not the shadow of a man.

I will move in my own way,
Be what I decide to be,
Do my work and have my love,
But forever I'll be free,
And forever I'll be me.
