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

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...
