I heard about a man, walking on the water
He had hope in his eyes
He didn't wear a crown or have any money
He didn't have any lies

He had holes in his pockets
He had holes in his hands
He looked like an outlaw talking to his lover

He was a spiritual man

I wanna be a prince, not a king or a warrior
I wanna have a special light in my eyes
Wanna climb up a mountain, find a tree of wisdom
I wanna feel good when I cry

And maybe someday I could be a teacher
I want that karma when you touch my hand
I'll walk through the streets,
Talking to the homeless in winter

I wanna be a spiritual man, yeah

I heard about a man who was born in the desert
He rode for days and nights across the sand
And one day, he came upon an angel
The angel said, "Hey you, you're gonna be a spiritual man!"

Last night I saw a man walking toward a club in Harlem
He had a black case in his hands
Went through the back door and pulled out his gold companion
He closed his eyes and played all night like a self-taught spiritual man
