​Modern Man

This song is by Howard Jones and appears on the album The Very Best Of... (2003).

Give him something to hang on to
Give him something that won't fade
Give him dreams that won't be shattered
Give him a life with the bills all paid
But it never ever comes his way
They were telling him lies all day
Let him have a cast iron religion,
Give him something that's always right
Make love in one position
Give him justice without a fight

But it never ever comes his way
They were telling him lies all day
(I'm a modern man) what's it like to be a modern man oh oh
With a vision of a life that can't be found (I'm a modern man)
What's it like to be a modern man oh oh
With a vision of a life that can't be found
Let him have a life without conflict
While your at it give him everything he needs
He wants the cake and he wants the pudding
But he doesn't ever want to bleed

But it never ever comes his way
They were telling him lies all day
(I'm a modern man) what's it like to be a modern man oh oh
With a vision of a life that can't be found
(I'm a modern man) what's it like to be a modern man oh oh
With a vision of a life that can't be found
You told him it was always black and white
You wound up living in a world of grey
But it never ever comes his way oh oh
(I'm a modern man) what's it like to be a modern man oh oh
With a vision of a life that can't be found
(I'm a modern man) what's it like to be a modern man oh oh
With a vision of a life that can't be found
(I'm a modern man) what's it like to be a modern man oh oh (give me a life without conflict)
With a vision of a life that can't be found (give me everything I need)
(I'm a modern man) what's it like to be a modern man oh oh (I want the cake and I want the pudding)
With a vision of a life that can't be found (but I don't want to bleed)
