Wednesday Words – The Man In Me

“The man in me will hide sometimes to keep from being seen
But that’s just because he doesn’t want to turn into some machine”

 

“The Man In Me” – Bob Dylan

The man in me will do nearly any task
As for compensation, there’s a little he will ask
Take a woman like you
To get through to the man in me.

Storm clouds are raging all around my door
I think to myself I might not take it anymore
Take a woman like your kind
To find the man in me.

But, oh what a wonderful feeling
Just to know that you are near
It sets my heart a-reeling
From my toes up to my ears.

The man in me will hide sometimes to keep from being seen
But that’s just because he doesn’t want to turn into some machine
Take a woman like you
To get through to the man in me.

The Man in Me” is a song from Bob Dylan’s 1970 album New Morning.

It is featured in the soundtrack to the 1998 Coen Brothers film The Big Lebowski. It plays during the stylized opening title sequence and during the hallucination sequence after the Dude is punched and his rug stolen.

More recently it has been performed live by the film’s star, Jeff Bridges, at Lebowski Fest, an audience-participation oriented event commemorating the film. The Dude hallucination sequence is also featured in The Front Porch, an episode of the television series How I Met Your Mother in 2009.

In 1975 the song was covered by London reggae band Matumbi. The song was also covered by The Clash during sessions for the album that was to become London Calling. It is available on The Vanilla Tapes.
