Marvin Gaye – You’re the Man [Alternate Version 1] Lyrics

There’s misery in the land
[Verse 3]:
Hey, hey
People marching on Washington
Why not hear what they have to say? [Intro]:
A vote to you if you can
Pull the country through
You’re the man
[Verse 1]:
You been talking, talking to the people
Trying to get ’em to go your way
Telling us not to worry
You say we won’t be led astray
So blind from signifying
Your opponents, following ’em all with lies
Oh, think about the mistakes you made
I believe America’s at stake
Busing, busing is an issue
Come on, lemme hear your plan, mister
‘Cause, if you’ve got a plan
If you’ve got a master plan
[Chorus]:
I got to vote for you
I got to vote for you
You’re the man
[Verse 2]:
Oh, we don’t wanna hear no lies
No, how you plan to economize
We want our dollar value increased
And employment to rise
The nation’s taxation
Is causing all of this inflation
Don’t give us no peace sign
Then turn around
And rob the people blind
Economics is the issue
Come on, let me hear your plan, mister
‘Cause if you’ve got a master plan
[Chorus]:
I got to vote for you
You’re the man
Oh yeah
[Repeat x5]:
Don’t you understand? Because the tables
Might just turn against you, brother
Set around election day
Politics and hypocrites
Is turning us all into lunatics
Can you take the guns from our sons
And right all the wrong
This administration’s done
Peace and freedom are the issues
Come on, let me hear you plans, mister
‘Cause if you’ve got the master plan
If you’ve got the master plan
[Chorus]:
I got to vote for you
I got to vote for you
You’re the man
[Outro]:
Help the country
The colored folk
Equality
Unity
Stop them
Got to vote for you
Got to, got to, got to vote for you
Help the people
Save the land
Save the land
