Hendrix, Jimi - Mannish Boy Lyrics

Mama hasn't... take one
Oh ooh yeah
Whoo ooh ooh yeah

Everything's gonna be all right this mornin'
Have mercy

Ow wah
Wow wowwa wowwa

When I was a young boy
Right about the age of five, I think
I had a certain kinda problem
Keepin' my folk alive
Now I'm a man, made 21
You now baby, we'll have whole lots of fun
'Cause I'm a man, spelled 'M'
'A' child, 'N' boy

Dididdy diddy
Dididdy diddy

All you pretty woman
Stand in line
I'll make love to you, baby
Always time
I'm not shootin'
Will never miss
The way I make love
Takes care of you
'Cause I'm a man
Spelled 'M'
'A' child, now
Oh me
'N' child

Doodoodoo doody
Doodoodoo doody

Uh uh an uh uhha

'Cause I'm a man


'Cause I'm a man, child
I said I'm a man, here me say
'Cause I'm a man, babe
I said I'm a man
Yeah baby


I'm goin' down south
To Kansas, to... bring back my second cousin
Little John the Choncheroe
'Cause I'm a man
What fun we had
Chasin' rabbits
In the sand
Hey hey hey

Hendrix, Jimi Mannish Boy Comments
  1. Live Wire

    The description says it's an up tempo version of the Muddy Waters song. Sounds more like the original by Bo Diddley to me, considering that the famous Muddy Waters version was recorded at least 5 years after this.

  2. Official GeoSt0rm

    Doo Doo Da Doo Doo DooDooDoouuuuouuoo 🎶

  10. antimnimoniakos

    Best of guitars

  11. Santiago Ayala

    I have always been a 70's hardrock psychedelic lover and I rejected Hendrix without knowing him.

    Now that I'm giving myself the opportunity to face it, can understand why he's a rock deity.

  33. littleclay

    i've heard this song b4, somewhere in my memory
    4 U's

  34. Paul Rose

    If only he could have had 6 months off from treadmill touring schedule his management had him shackled to. Just think where he could've gone on to from there. With the funk and fusion explosion of the 70s he'd have been right at home and blazing a trail. Tragic waste of an incredible talent and human being.

  35. Crepsecular Corvus


  36. Dalton Blair

    Just think Jimi never thought his voice was ever good enough! Well millions are so thankful he sang anyways!
