You may never buy me a big house,
A Cadillac to cruise in with the top down,
That ain't the way I am.
I judge a man by the gold on the inside,
I'm not fooled by the glitter on the outside,
That ain't the measure of a man.

(Chorus:)
It's not how far you go,
It's not how much you make. 
Boy it's what you've give,
Not what you take.
It's being strong and true,
To those counting on you.
It's lending a hand, making a stand,
That's the measure of a man. 

Give an honest day's work for an honest day's pay.
Stand behind every word you say.
Seal a deal with a shake of your hand.
If you're a few rungs short of the top of the ladder,
When you meet your Maker what will it matter?
That ain't the measure of a man.

(Chorus)

It's lending a hand, making a stand,
That's the measure of a man.
