      About "Real Men"

      Lyrics for Joe Jackson - "Real Men"

      Take your mind back, I don't know when
      Sometime 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 change, 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
      Blow-wave in the 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 fagot
      Not unless you are a friend
      Then if you're tall and handsome and strong
      You can wear the uniform and I could 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
