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
