Well my pad is very messy
And there's whiskers on my chin
And I'm all hung up on music
And I always play to win
I ain't got no time for lovin'
Cause my time is all used up
Just to sit around creatin'
All that groovy kind of stuff.
I'm a man
Yes I am
And I can't help
But love you so
I'm a man
Yes I am
And I can't help
But love you so.

Well if I had my choice of matter
I would rather be with cats
All engrossed in mental chatter
Moving where our minds are at
And relating to each other
Just how strong our wills can be
I'm resisting all involvement
With each groovy chick we see

Well I'm a man
Yes I am
And I can't help
But love you so
I'm a man
Yes I am
And I can't help
But love you so.

I got to keep my image
While suspended from a throne
That looks out upon a kingdom
Full of people all unknown
Who imagine I'm not human
And my heart is made of stone
I never had no problems
And my toilet's trimmed with chrome

I'm a man
Yes I am
And I can't help
But love you so.
I'm a man
Yes I am
And I can't help
But love you so.

"I'm a Man" is a song written by Spencer Davis Group singer-songwriter Steve Winwood and record producer Jimmy Miller.

The original recording was a fast, Hammond organ-driven blues rock track released as a single by the Spencer Davis Group in early 1967, reaching no. 9 in the UK singles charts and no.10 in the US. It was the last hit single by the band before the brothers Steve and Muff Winwood left to pursue their own separate careers.

The song is sometimes confused with another SDG hit, "Gimme Some Lovin'", which has been a hit for various other bands, and was also covered by Steve Winwood's next band, Traffic.

"I'm A Man" was included on the band's summer 1967 album I'm a Man, as well as being featured on the recent Spencer Davis Group DVD "Gimme Some Lovin' Live 1966", which was recorded live in late 1966.

Marzio Vincenzi, lead and background vocalist originally from Bologna, Italy, and Mauro Malavasi produced in 1978 a version of "I'm A Man" under the name "Macho" which is a classic of Disco music, or as some have classified it, "rosco music", a hybrid between Rock and Disco genres.
