The Man

Album: Lover (2019)
Charted: 21 23
  • I would be complex
    I would be cool
    They'd say I played the field before
    I found someone to commit to
    And that would be okay
    For me to do
    Every conquest I had made
    Would make me more of a boss to you

    I'd be a fearless leader
    I'd be an alpha type
    When everyone believes ya
    What's that like?

    I'm so sick of running
    As fast as I can
    Wondering if I'd get there quicker
    If I was a man
    And I'm so sick of them
    Coming at me again
    'Cause if I was a man
    Then I'd be the man
    I'd be the man
    I'd be the man

    They'd say I hustled
    Put in the work
    They wouldn't shake their heads
    And question how much of this I deserve
    What I was wearing, if I was rude
    Could all be separated from my good ideas and power moves
    And we would toast to me, oh, let the players play
    I'd be just like Leo, in Saint-Tropez

    I'm so sick of running
    As fast as I can
    Wondering if I'd get there quicker
    If I was a man
    And I'm so sick of them
    Coming at me again
    'Cause if I was a man
    Then I'd be the man
    I'd be the man
    I'd be the man

    What's it like to brag about raking in dollars
    And getting bitches and models?
    And it's all good if you're bad
    And it's okay if you're mad

    If I was out flashin' my dollas
    I'd be a bitch, not a baller
    They'd paint me out to be bad
    So it's okay that I'm mad

    I'm so sick of running
    As fast as I can
    Wondering if I'd get there quicker
    If I was a man (you know that)
    And I'm so sick of them
    Coming at me again (coming at me again)
    'Cause if I was a man (if I was man)
    Then I'd be the man (then I'd be the man)

    I'm so sick of running
    As fast as I can (as fast as I can)
    Wondering if I'd get there quicker
    If I was a man (hey!)

    And I'm so sick of them
    Coming at me again (coming at me again!)
    'Cause if I was a man (if I was man)
    Then I'd be the man
    I'd be the man
    I'd be the man (oh)
    I'd be the man (yeah)
    I'd be the man (I'd be the man) Writer/s: Joel Little, Taylor Swift
