Lou Rawls - A Natural Man Lyrics

(Spoken)

You know, there was a time when, if someone told you to
Do somethin', you did it. Bam! Right on! No questions asked.
It was "Yes, sir" and "Yes, mam". You never said no. You know? Huh.

But, you know, things are changing nowadays. It's a new day,
Babies. Folks want to take their own lives into their hands and
Make their own choices. No longer do they wanna go along with the program 'cause everybody say it's right. You know what I mean?

Let me tell ya what I'm talkin' about, ya see, 'cause

I don't want no gold watch for workin' fifty years from nine till five

A-while the boss is guzzling champagne and I'm beltin' beer in some dive

'Cause I want to be happy and free
Livin' and loving for me
I want to be happy and free
Livin' and lovin' for me
Like a natural man (like a natural man)
A natural man (like a natural man)

Well now, I refuse to listen to people's thinkin' that I live too high I'm gonna taste it now before my one life streaks on by
'Cause I want to be happy and free
Livin' and lovin' for me
I want to be happy and free
Livin' and lovin' for me
Just like a natural man (like a natural man)
I said a natural man (just like a natural man)

Well now, I tried to do what others say that I should do
They say that I should fit in, fool 'em, fake it, well
Those kinda dues just make me crazy and blue
Man, I just can't take it

So when ya see me walkin', won't ya notice that proud look in my eyes my feet are on the ground and my soul is searchin' for the sky 'cause I want to be happy and free
Livin' and lovin' for me
I want to be happy and free
Livin' and lovin' for me
Just like a natural man (just like a natural man)
A natural man (just like a natural man)
Just like a natural man (just like a natural man)
My feet are on the ground (just like a natural man)
My soul is searchin' for the sky (just like a natural man)
Like a natural man (just like a natural man)
No more "Yes, sir" (just like a natural man)
No more "Yes, mam" (just like a natural man)
Huh, 'cause I'm a natural man (just like a natural man)
I'm a natural man (just like a natural man)
