The only boy I understand
The one ashamed to be a man
Just rape the world
Because you can
That's what it takes
To be a man
Well, knock her up
Just slap her hand
Prove it to me, just be a man
I think I can
I think I can
I'm big enough to be a man
Tell you the truth
I'm jealous yeah
Give anything
To be a man
Be a man
So impotent
Be a man
Ohh...
Take off your dress
Your master plan
Give anything
Just be a man
Oh cut it off
Of course you can
Got what it takes
To be a man
Oh rape us all
Just 'cause you can
Well give it up
Just be a man
Oh fuck the world
Because you can
Give anything
To be a man
Cut it off
I know you can
'Cause no one cares if you're a man
Be a man
So impotent
Be a man
Ohhh...
Can't get it up?
I understand
Under the gun to be a man
I think I can
I think I can
I'm big enough to be a man
Oh take this world just cause I can
I'm everything
Oh be a man
I rape the world just cause I can
Give anything ah ah
Be a man
I'm potent yeah
Be a man
I'm potent yeah
Be a man
I'm potent yeah
I'm potent yeeeah

    This song is riddled with the male stereotype. A man is strong, a man likes sex, a man uses women. And of course, "impotent" has a double meaning. It can mean weak, which a man tries not to be, and also it means inability to keep an erection. I think that's a really important part of the song that ties it all together.
