    The Man
    Released


      About "The Man"

      "The Man" from Aloe Blacc has been getting lots of play on TV recently as the background on a prominent ad for Beats by Dr. Dre featuring Colin Kaepernick of the 49ers. In it, Blacc sings of standing up for oneself and sticking to your guns, a message that is sure to resonate in all times. Indeed, one of the central lines, "You can tell everybody", was sampled from Elton John. It is also interesting to note that "The Man" came as Blacc's response to Dr. Dre hearing his earlier work and thinking it wasn't his best. Evidently Dre was right in thinking Blacc could create a true chart topper. "The Man" is slated to be released along with the rest of the Lift Your Spirit album on March 11, 2014.

      Lyrics for Aloe Blacc - "The Man"

      Girl you can tell everybody
      Yeah you can tell everybody
      Go ahead and tell everybody
      I'm the man, I'm the man, I'm the man
      Yes I am, yes I am, yes I am
      I'm the man, I'm the man, I'm the man

      I believe every lie that I ever told
      Paid for every heart that I ever stole
      I paid my cause and I didn’t fold
      Well it ain’t that hard when you got soul (this is my world)
      Somewhere I heard that life is a test
      I been though the worst but still I give my best
      God made my mold different from the rest
      Then he broke that mold so I know I’m blessed (this is my world)

      Stand up now and face the sun
      Won’t hide my tail or turn and run
      It’s time to do what must be done
      Be a king when kingdom comes

      Girl you can tell everybody
      Yeah you can tell everybody
      Go ahead and tell everybody
      I'm the man, I'm the man, I'm the man

      Girl you can tell everybody
      Yeah you can tell everybody
      Go ahead and tell everybody
      I'm the man, I'm the man, I'm the man
      Yes I am, yes I am, yes I am
      I'm the man, I'm the man, I'm the man

      I got all the answers to your questions
      I’ll be the teacher you could be the lesson
      I’ll be the preacher you be the confession
      I’ll be the quick relief to all your stressing (this is my world)
      It’s a thin line between love and hate
      Is you really real or is you really fake
      I’m a solider standing on my feet
      No surrender and I won’t retreat (this is my world)

      Stand up now and face the sun
      Won’t hide my tail or turn and run
      It’s time to do what must be done
      Be a king when kingdom comes

      Girl you can tell everybody
      Yeah you can tell everybody
      Go ahead and tell everybody
      I'm the man, I'm the man, I'm the man
      Girl you can tell everybody
      Yeah you can tell everybody
      Go ahead and tell everybody
      I'm the man, I'm the man, I'm the man
      Yes I am, yes I am, yes I am
      I'm the man, I'm the man, I'm the man

      I’m the man
      Go ahead and tell everybody what I’m saying y’all
      I’m the man
      Go ahead and tell everybody what I’m saying y’all

      Girl you can tell everybody
      Yeah you can tell everybody
      Go ahead and tell everybody
      I'm the man, I'm the man, I'm the man
      Girl you can tell everybody
      Yeah you can tell everybody
      Go ahead and tell everybody
      I'm the man, I'm the man, I'm the man
      Girl you can tell everybody
      Yeah you can tell everybody
      Go ahead and tell everybody
      I'm the man, I'm the man, I'm the man
      Girl you can tell everybody
      Yeah you can tell everybody
      Go ahead and tell everybody
      I'm the man, I'm the man, I'm the man
      Yes I am, yes I am, yes I am
      I'm the man, I'm the man, I'm the man
