LOUDON WAINWRIGHT III


Men Lyrics

When a ship is sinking and they lower the lifeboats
And hand out the life jackets, the men keep on their
coats
The women and the children are the ones who must go
first
And the men who try to save their skins are cowards and
are cursed

Every man's a captain, men know how to drown
Man the lifeboats if there's room, otherwise go down

And it's the same when there's a war on: it's the men
who go to fight
Women and children are civilians, when they're killed
it's not right
Men kill men in uniform, its the way war goes
When they run they're cowards, when they stay they are
heroes

Every man's a general, men go off to war
The battlefields a man's world, cannon fodders what
they're for

It's the men who have the power, it's the men who have
the might
And the world's a place of horror because each man
thinks he's right
A man's home is his castle so the family let him in
But what's important in that kingdom is the women and
the children

A husband and a father, every man's a king
But he's really just a drone, gathers no honey, has no
sting
Have pity on the general, the king, and the captain
They know they're expendable, after all they're men
