Just Like A Man

lyrics

Worms and water that's all I need
Love and attention a pound of birdseed
Tie me down to a styrofoam nest
White picket fence and a bullet proof vest
You're just, just like a man
You're going to save me from myself if you can
Just like a man
You want to take me back to the promised land
Just, just like a man
You say you try, try try to understand
Just, just like a man

You tell me
"Stool pidgin sitting duck fly away home
Helpless little chickadee now don't you roam
Never, never get away from what you are
An appetite for love in a bell fruit jar"

You're just, just like a man
You're going to save me from myself if you can
Just like a man
You want to take me back to the promised land
Just, just like a man
You say you try, try try to understand
Just, just like a man

Worms and water that's all I need
Love and attention a pound of birdseed
Tie me down to a styrofoam nest
White picket fence and a bullet proof vest

You're just, just like a man
You're going to save me from myself if you can
Just like a man
You want to take me back to the promised land
Just, just like a man
You say you try, try, try to understand
Just, just like a man
