The Big Lebowski - title sequence with Bob Dylan - The Man In Me - YouTube
The Big Lebowski title sequence with Bob Dylan "The Man In Me" The Big Lebowski is a 1998 American comedy film written and directed by Joel and Ethan Coen. Jeff Bridges stars as Jeffrey Lebowski, an unemployed Los Angeles slacker and avid bowler, who refers to himself as "The Dude". The Man In Me The man in me will do nearly any task, And as for compensation, there's little he would ask. Take a woman like you To get through to the man in me. Storm clouds are raging all around my door, I think to myself I might not take it any more. Take a woman like your kind To find the man in me. But, oh, what a wonderful feeling Just to know that you are near, Sets my a heart a-reeling From my toes up to my ears. The man in me will hide sometimes to keep from bein' seen, But that's just because he doesn't want to turn into some machine. Took a woman like you To get through to the man in me.
