​Just Like a Man

This song is by Graham Parker and appears on the album The Real Macaw (1983) and on the compilation album The Official Art Vandelay Tapes, Volume Two (2005).

Just like a man, flexing his muscle and not really usin' it
Just like a fool, making her suffer And stuffing her feelings with cotton wool
Well, forgive him, forgive him

Just like a man, carrying a picture but seeing in the negative
Just like a fool, all double standards baby do this but never do that
Well, forgive him, forgive him, forgive him

He makes her fall, face down into the pillow
Climbing the wall, weeping like a weeping willow
Hands her a tissue he's already used

Just like a man, just like a man
Dragging her under for everything he'll never be
Ripping her asunder, said he didn't really love her anyway
Well, forgive him, forgive him

Just like a man, thrashing out blindly way out of his depth
Just like a fool, there's no device he won't employ
He even cries like a little boy
Well, forgive him, forgive him Forgive him
Just like a man, just like a man
Just like a man, just like a man
