The Yardbirds Mr. You're a Better Man Than I Lyrics

Last updated: 11/12/2008 10:00:00 AM

Can you judge a man
By the way he wears his hair?
Can you read his mind
By the clothes that he wears?
Can you see a bad man
By the pattern on his tie?

Chorus:

Then Mister you're a better man than I
Yeah Mister You're a better man than I
Oh Mister You're a better man than I
Yeah Mister You're a better man than I

Could you tell a wise man
By the way he speaks or spells?
Is this more important
Than the stories that he tells?
And call a man a fool
If for wealth he doesn't strive

Chorus:

Then Mister you're a better man than I
Yeah Mister You're a better man than I
Oh Mister You're a better man than I
Yeah Mister You're a better man than I

Could you condemn a man
If your faith he doesn't hold?
Say the colour of his skin
Is the colour of his soul?
Or could you say if men
For king and country all must die?

Chorus
Then Mister you're a better man than I
Yeah You're a better man than I
Oh Mister You're a better man than I
Yeah Mister You're a better man than I

Mr. You're A Better Man Than I | Reviewer: Duane | 11/11/2008

There are two versions of this song. A longer version has an extra set of lyrics. After the second chorus is an instrumental break then an additional set of lyrics are added. I believe they are something close to this.
Do you think if often the majority is right.
That men with individuality should never fight.
Can you hate a man that shouts out Freedom's cries.



Some part is missing | Reviewer: Mom in CA | 3/11/2007

Hi there,
My little son pointed out that there's a missing part between "Yeah, Mr. you're a better man than I" and "Can you condemn a man".
I'm not very good at catching the words, but it should start like this, "Do you think...all thing, the mutty...should never fight. Can you hate a man..."
If any of you are able to write this part down, could you please email me at jicywaf@yahoo.com. I really appreciate it.

Thanks a lot!
