Lyric of the Week: JUST A MAN

You saw right away that I don’t ask for much

So you assumed you got me in the bag

You tell me you need me, and you use me like a crutch

But you treat me like a rag

You seduce my brains out to ensure your success

Something I never let anyone do

You give me orders and tell me how to dress

Just because I said I’d do anything for you


Try

Try to understand

Try

Try to understand

That I

I’m just a man

I’m just a regular man


You bring your friends along on our dates

But you get mad if I stop to talk to one of mine

When I come pick you up, I always have to wait

But you yell at me if I’m a minute overtime

You want me to give it to you every night, all night

Then you expect me to get up and go to work every day

And then you get all hurt and uptight

When I tell you I can’t go on this way


Try

Try to understand

Try

Try to understand

That I

I’m just a man

I’m just an ordinary man

Sunday I called, you said you were tired

Monday you had nothing to wear

Tuesday you claimed you had a flat tire

Wednesday you had to wash your hair

Thursday you said you’d be working late

Friday you went shopping in town

Saturday we finally made a date

Saturday night you were nowhere to be found!


Try

Try to understand

Try

Try to understand

That I

I’m just a man

I’m just an everyday man

I'm just a regular man.

This song goes back to 1984, when I was involved with the Girlfriend From Hell™. She really did treat me the way the scenarios play out in the verses. The choruses are my protests against being treated like ... well, the way she treated me: I'm just a regular, ordinary, everyday man ... not the idealized figure who is capable of catering to your every whim. Sometimes even the ordinariest, most regular guys have enough of being treated like a doormat by people who supposedly love them.


The music takes a little bit from Lou Reed's "I'm Waiting For The Man," from Lou Reed Live, albeit in a 6/8 shuffle. Not recorded, yet.
