Lyrics

Don Juan

picaresque wife-beater vest cold hand ice man warring caveman well, if this is what it takes to describe I'm not a man

Wheeler-dealer mover-shaker Casanova Beef-a-roni ah, but lonely well, if this is what it takes to describe I'm not a man I'm not a man I'm something much bigger and better than a man

Wise-ass Smart-ass workaholic thick-skinned two-fisted hombre, ole well, if these are terms you'd use to describe oh, I'm shaking! look at me - I'm quaking! True grit, true blue kill crazy! so very manly of you! you are the soldier who won't get much older you are the Slow Joe who signed up to go

Wolf down, wolf down T-bone steak wolf down cancer of the prostate ways to sit, and of course ways to stand I'm not a man! I'm not a man! no big fat locker-room hockey-jock laughing I am not a man! I'd never kill or eat an animal and I never would destroy this planet I'm on well ... what do you think I am ... a man?
