This is a song about an idealist politician seeking the love of the people.


The rain was pouring down on us, the deadlines fast approaching us.
The cubicles enclose them, the moistened air supposes
The people scowling, the wind was howling.
The raindrops dripped upon our sheets. Like love letters wet, their ink will bleed.
Warm bodies sparingly seen, there are more we need to see
To petition to sign on, I'm your man, will you sign on?

I'm your man, I'm your man, I'm your man, I'm your man.

The gradual sun was coming out, the people soon were crawling out.
We waited at the store, out front for folks to implore,
And some were timid, the clock was ticking.
The tired time was cutting close, each moment try to make the most.
I'll need some backing real soon to put myself out there for you.
I'm your man, will you sign on? I'm losing time, please sign on..

I'm your man, I'm your man, I'm your man, I'm your man.

I want to win, I want to win, you don't know how much I want to win, I really want to win your heart.
So won't you count me in, I cannot petition your heart if your love's not within.

I'm your man, I'm your man, I spell M, A, chlld, N. Represent man, soul-grown man, way past 21, natural born lover's man, for you..

I'm your man, I'm your man, I'm your man, I'm your man
