I'm going to ask the question
Please answer if you can
Is there anybody's children can tell me
What is the soul of a man?


Won't somebody tell me
Answer if you can
Won't somebody tell me
Tell me what is the soul of a man?


I've travelled different countries
Travelled to the furthest lands
Couldn't find nobody could tell me
What is the soul of a man


Won't somebody tell me
Answer if you can
Won't somebody tell me
Tell me what is the soul of a man?


I saw a crowd stand talking
I just came up in time
Was teaching the lawyers and the doctors
That a man ain't nothing but his mind


Won't somebody tell me
Answer if you can
Won't somebody tell me
Tell me what is the soul of a man?


I read the Bible often
I try to read it right
As far as I can understand
It's nothing but a burning light


Won't somebody tell me
Answer if you can
Won't somebody tell me
Tell me what is the soul of a man?


When Christ taught in the temple
The people all stood amazed
Was teaching the lawyers and the doctors
How to raise a man from the grave


Won't somebody tell me
Answer if you can
Won't somebody tell me
Tell me what is the soul of a man?
