A Man Is A Man Is A Man 1954

A Man Is A Man Is A Man


There are girls who think that cause a guy’s got dough,

He’s got added charm, but I don’t think that’ so.

Why, the only thing his dough improves

Is what he wears and how he move

In upper bracket circles of society.

There are also girls who idolize good looks;

Love men who only read the latest books.

But all I the same I do dissent,

By saying that a gent’s a gent,

And that they’re all alike in what they represent.


A man is a man is a man.

A necessary evil in your plan.

A man is a man is a man.

Be he beggar, thief or king, he’s still a man.

A man is a man is a man.

It reveals itself superbly in his pan.

A man is a man is a man.

With him you play the game catch as catch can.

Dear old Gertie Stein set out with wrong intent.

When she said a rose, she should have meant the gentleman.

A man is a man is a man.

And the one thing Boston doesn’t dare to ban.

We ignore him adore him – the brute –

Cause we haven’t found a better substitute.

Each one thinks he’s nature’s gift to humanity,

And we women know it’s naught but pure insanity;

So until he’s replaced, I maintain,

Be he handsome, be he small,

Be he anything at all,

Be he poor or be he rich,

Own a bank or dig a ditch;

Be he tall, short, fat or slim,

Be he slow or full of vim,

There’s no understanding him, but he’s a man:

And a man is a man is a man.

Little addition:

A guy is a guy is a guy.

Like the onion he can make a woman cry.

Of course, the onion’s excuse is the peel,

While the guy’s excuse is just that he’s a heel.

They do feats of bold and they explore the earth,

While we girls sit back and laugh in quiet mirth.

We allow them to think that they’re kings,

While, like puppet masters we pull all the strings.

(Go back to ‘Until he’s replaced’ –end) with title.
