lyrics

VERSE 1

I love the way you smile
When nothing’s going right
You take a deep, deep breath
And stick on in the fight

Yeah

The way your body swerves
You got it going on
This is a war of nerves
But you got brains and brawn

CHORUS

‘Cos you're a soulful man
So happy your mine
You’re happiest in your own skin
Play the game, you always win

‘Cos you're a soulful man
And I’m so happy your mine
You got something that no wealth can buy
And it can’t be faked, though many try

VERSE 2

You are my Sugar Ray
You are my Marvin Gaye
Yeah, you are my Ellery from back in ’83

You gotta move your feet
You don’t know when you’re beat
Life is a marathon
And you keep on keeping on, on, on


CHORUS

‘Cos your a soulful man
So happy your mine
You’re happiest in your own skin
You play the game, you always win

‘Cos you're a soulful man
So happy your mine
You got something wealth can’t buy
And it can’t be faked, though many try

Hey!

ORGAN SOLO

CHORUS

Oh, you're a soulful man
So happy your mine
You’re happiest in your own skin
You play the game, you always win

‘Cos you're a soulful man
So happy your mine
You got something that no wealth can buy
And it can’t be faked, though many try

Hey, Hey, Hey!
