Born A Man

This song is by The Hollies and appears on the album Hollies (1974).

Some kids grow up with lots of toys
Some grow up knowing other boys
And I was born in the land of the free
But these things never happened to me

I was born a man, don't remember being a child
I was born a man, don't remember running wild
As soon as I was old enough to get my pay
I was working sixteen hours out of every day

Some kids grow up with mother's love
And some with even more
But me I just turned up one day
On someone else's door

' 'Cause I was born a man, don't remember being a child
I was born a man, don't remember running wild
Soon as I was old enough to get my pay
I was working sixteen hours out of every day

But I won't cry, no I won't bore you
It has been good, but it could have been better
Life's like a woman, go out and take her
She'll treat you good if you are good back to her

I was born a man, don't remember being a child
I was born a man, don't remember running wild
As soon as I was old enough to get my pay
I was working sixteen hours out of every day
