  • I'm a man
    That's what you raised me to be
    I'm not an identity crisis
    This was planned

    I'm a man
    There's innocence in all mankind
    It's what kind of animal I am
    It's that simple, oh

    I'm a man
    And not just casually
    I pull the sparks fulltime
    The tree house cannot support me

    I'm not the runt of the litter
    The fat fiends and bullies were no match for me
    So taste them in my teeth
    I'm a man

    I'm a man's man
    I've always been
    Make no mistake
    I invest in
    A woman's heart
    It's the watermark
    Of which I measure everything

    I'm a man
    That's what you raised me to be
    I'm not your identity crisis
    This was planned

    I'm a man
    You'll have to deal with me
    My proxy is mine
    You'll deal with me directly

    And if I'm dipshit drunk on the pink perfume
    I am the man in the fucking moon
    'Cause you didn't know what a man was
    Until I showed you Writer/s: Neko Case, Paul Rigby
