IT'S A MAN (EVERY TIME IT'S A MAN)
Jimmy McHugh - Al Dubin)
'65 copyright control

Now who breaks a heart like a child breaks a toy
it's a man every time it's a man
Who brings the heartaches and takes all the joy
it's a man every time it's a man
When a man makes a blunder the whole world forgives
While she has to suffer as long as she lives
Then who's to blame if her head hangs in shame
it's a man every time it's a man

[ guitar - steel ]

When a man makes a blunder the whole world forgives
While she has to suffer as long as she lives
Then who's to blame if her head hangs in shame
it's a man every time it's a man

Now that i know who he is ,it seems he was a very talented songwriter.He also wrote "Coming in on a wing and a prayer"one of my favourites,as a collaboration.Here are some more of his songs.Surprised at the hits he either wrote or worked on.
