Mannish Boy

"Mannish Boy" is a blues standard by Muddy Waters first recorded in 1955. It is both an arrangement of and an "answer song" to Bo Diddley's "I'm a Man", which was in turn inspired by Waters' and Willie Dixon's "Hoochie Coochie Man". "Mannish Boy" features a repeating stop-time figure on one chord throughout the song and is credited to Waters, Mel London, and Bo Diddley.

Famous quotes containing the words boy and/or mannish:

    ‘You’re wounded!’ ‘Nay,’ his soldier’s pride
    Touched to the quick, he said:
    ‘I’m killed, Sire!’ And his Chief beside,
    Smiling the boy fell dead.
    Robert Browning (1812–1889)

    We’ll have a swashing and a martial outside,
    As many other mannish cowards have
    That do outface it with their semblances.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
