It's A Man's, Man's, Man's World

Lyrics: James Brown
Music: James Brown

Sung by Pigpen with the Grateful Dead in 1970. Interestingly, James Brown's version was one of the songs picked by Jerry Garcia and Phil Lesh to play when they appeared on Tom Donahue's show on KMPX-FM in 1967.:

It's a man's world
It's a man's world
But it would be nothing without a woman or a girl

Man made the electric light to take us out of the dark
Man made the boat for the water, like they said that Noah made the ark

Man thinks about a bit of baby girl, and a baby boy
Man makes them happy because man makes them toys

Man make everything, everything he can
You know that man makes money, the root of all evil
To buy every woman and every man
