    [Verse 1]
               F                   G
    I would be complex, I would be cool
                 C                                   Am
    They'd say I played the field before I found someone to commit to
                      F              G
    And that would be okay for me to do
          C                                 Am
    Every conquest I had made would make me more of a boss to you
     
     
    [Pre-Chorus]
    F
     I'd be a fearless leader
    G
     I'd be an alpha type
    C
     When everyone believes ya
    Am
     What's that like?
     
     
    [Chorus]
    F                         G
    I'm so sick of running as fast as I can
    C                                      Am
     Wondering if I'd get there quicker if I was a man
        F                          G
    And I'm so sick of them coming at me again
              C                 Am
    'Cause if I was a man, then I'd be the man
               F   G
    I'd be the man
               C   Am
    I'd be the man
     
     
    [Verse 2]
                 F                   G
    They'd say I hustled, put in the work
                  C                                       Am
    They wouldn't shake their heads and question how much of this I deserve
               F                 G
    What I was wearing, if I was rude
                 C                       Am
    Could all be separated from my good ideas and power moves
     
     
    [Pre-Chorus]
    F                             G
     And they would toast to me, oh, let the players play
    C                   Am
     I'd be just like Leo in Saint Tropez
     
     
    [Chorus]
    F                         G
    I'm so sick of running as fast as I can
    C                                      Am
     Wondering if I'd get there quicker if I was a man
        F                          G
    And I'm so sick of them coming at me again
              C                 Am
    'Cause if I was a man, then I'd be the man
               F   G
    I'd be the man
               C   Am
    I'd be the man
     
     
    [Bridge]
                                 F
    What's it like to brag about raking in dollars
                G
    And getting bitches and models?
                 C
    And it's all good if you're bad
              Am
    And it's okay if you're mad
                 F                             G
    If I was out flashing my dollars, I'd be a bitch not a baller
                    C
    They'd paint me out to be bad
              Am
    So, it's okay that I'm mad
     
     
    [Chorus]
    F                         G
    I'm so sick of running as fast as I can
    C                                      Am
     Wondering if I'd get there quicker if I was a man (You know that)
        F                          G
    And I'm so sick of them coming at me again (Coming at me again)
              C
    'Cause if I was a man (If I was a man)
         Am
    Then I'd be the man (Then I'd be the man)
    F                         G
    I'm so sick of running as fast as I can (As fast as I can)
    C                                      Am
     Wondering if I'd get there quicker if I was a man (Hey)
        F                          G
    And I'm so sick of them coming at me again (Coming at me again)
              C                                  Am
    'Cause if I was a man (If I was a man), then I'd be the man
               F   G
    I'd be the man
               C       Am
    I'd be the man (Oh)
               F         G
    I'd be the man (Yeah)
               C   Am
    I'd be the man (I'd be the man)
     
     
    [Outro]
    N.C.
    If I was a man, then I'd be the man
