Real Men

Okay, here's my first contribution...

Joe Jackson--"Real Men" (from the album Body & Soul, I believe)



Take your mind back

I don't know when.

Some time when it always seemed to be just us and them.

Girls that wore pink,



And boys that wore blue

Boys that always grew up better men than me and you.



What's a man now?

What's a man mean?

Is he rough or is he rugged? Is he cultural and clean?

Now it's all changed

It's got to change more

'Cause we think it's getting better but nobody's really sure.



And so it goes, go round again

But now and then we wonder who the real men are...



See the nice boys,



Dancing in pairs

Golden earring, golden tan and blow wave in their hair.

Sure they're all straight

Straight as a line

All the gays are macho, can't you see their leather shine.



You don't want to sound dumb

Don't want to offend

So don't call me a faggot, not unless you are a friend.

Then if you're tall

And handsome and strong

Then you can wear a uniform and I can play along.



And so it goes, go round again

But now and then we wonder who the real men are...



Time to get scared

Time to change plan

Don't know how to treat a lady, don't know how to be a man.

Time to admit

What you call defeat

'Cause there's women running past you now and you just drag your

feet.



Man makes a gun,



Man goes to war

Man can kill and man can drink and man can take a whore

Kill all the blacks

Kill all the reds

And if there's war between the sexes then there'll be no people left.



And so it goes, go round again

But now and then we wonder who the real men are...
