Walk Like A Man Lyrics –
Bob Crewe and Bob Gaudio

Oh how you tried to cut me down to size
Telling dirty lies to my friends
But my own father said give her up don’t bother
The world isn’t coming to an end

(he said it) Walk like a man
Talk like a man
Walk like a man my son
No woman’s worth
Crawling on the earth
So walk like a man my son

Good-bye baby I dont mean maybe
I’m gonna get along somehow
Soon you’ll be cryin on account of all your lyin
Oh yeah just look who’s laughing now

(I’m gonna) walk like a man
Fast as I can
Walk like a man from you
I’ll tell the world forget about it girl
And walk like a man from you

From Wikipedia

“Walk Like a Man” is a song written by Bob Crewe and Bob Gaudio and originally recorded by The Four Seasons.

The song features the counterpoint of Nick Massi’s bass voice and the falsetto of lead singer Frankie Valli. It was their 3rd #1 hit, initially reaching the top of the Billboard Hot 100 on March 2, 1963, remaining there for three weeks.

During the sessions that produced the hit recording, the fire department received an emergency call from the Abbey Victoria Hotel (the building that housed the Stea-Phillips Recording Studios). As producer Bob Crewe was insisting upon recording the perfect take, smoke and water started to seep into the studio as the group repeated their efforts upon Crewe’s insistence: the room directly above the studio was on fire, yet Crewe blocked the studio door and continued recording until a few firemen used their axes on it and pulled Crewe out.

Cover versions of the song have been recorded by other musicians such as the Mary Jane Girls and Dreamhouse.

The song “Walk Like a Man” is part of the The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s 500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll list
