She's A Girl And I'm A Man
Lloyd Cole Lyrics


She said she didn't understand
And so she guessed he was deep
She swore he'd never been to college
And was too tall to be
So as she led him to the slaughter
Thinking she'd be laughing last
Now the lady in the question is his better half
She's gotta be the stupidest girl I've ever seen
She don't care who, why, where I've been
She's got a right to be
With all that's wrong with me
But she doesn't want to understand
That she's a girl, and I'm a man
He thought that women and drink would make a man out of him
But the extent of his studies left a jaded man
So as she led him to the altar, he was easily led
And when they asked him if he did
Wwell then this is what he said
She's gotta be the stupidest girl I've ever seen
She don't care who, why, where I've been
She's got a right to be
With all that's wrong with me
But she doesn't want to understand
That she's a girl, and I'm a man
Well she's a girl, and I'm a man
She's a girl, and I'm a man
She's a girl, and I'm a man
She's a girl, and I'm a man
She's a girl, and I'm a man
She's a girl
She's gotta be the stupidest girl I've ever seen
She don't care who, why, where I've been
She's got a right to be, with all that's wrong with me
But she doesn't want to understand
That she's a girl, and I'm her man
Every time she's near me
She gives me any reason to be alive
Try to get right
Yeah, she looks right through me
She says you're not cool
You're just like me
You're a stupid man
Get over here, hold my stupid hand
She's all right, yeah
You wouldn't understand
Sister is a man fan
She's gotta be the stupidest girl I've ever seen
She don't care who, why, where I've been
She's got a right to be
With all that's wrong with me
But she doesn't want to understand
That she's a girl, and I'm a man
