​Threatened

This song is by Julie Brettell.

Grown up girls used to learn real quick, that they could change the way you turn
By just a smile, or a glance your way, they'd make you walk that extra mile.
We don't sit back and wait for you gods to decide
Who, why and what we will do with our gift of life.

And if you're feeling threatened by our existence
Its because the roles have changed
The manual stayed the same
And no one thought to tell you.

Men have it hard, I'm sure they'll agree. They weren't handed on a plate
The tools to deal with this new way to the be, Millennium man, new age guy
The pretty apron and the permit to play wife.

In a traditional man's world, I know we've had to fight; Just to be heard
To be given some simple rights. No one said it would be easy
And both sides felt the strain

And if you're feeling threatened by our existence
Its because the roles have changed
The manual stayed the same
And no one thought to tell you.

Roles undefined, it's a free for all; Choose the mask that fits
And make it work for you, no longer governed, by the old set of rules
They're gone forever.

And if you're feeling threatened by our existence
Its because the roles have changed
The manual stayed the same
And no one thought to tell you.
