Joan Jett – Machismo lyrics

(Joan Jett/Kenny Laguna)

Machismo doesn't wanna know macho, macho, macho
It's always such a show, when anyone is watchin'
Even when you're wrong, you just won't admit it
You think you're bein' strong, so you take it to the limit

Everyone's watchin' everyone's watchin'
It's time to play the fool again
Everyone's watchin' everyone's watchin'
You think you're cool but baby you're not
Everyone's watchin' everyone's watchin'
You gotta rule and call the shots

Machismo doesn't understand macho, macho, macho
What makes a man a man, it ain't about your ego
You have to make your point but where the hell's it got ya
You're just a bunch a noise, but that ain't nothin' new

Always so macho, always so macho
If you could only see yourself
Always so macho, always so macho
You ain't got the balls to be yourself
Always so macho, always so macho
You take it out on everyone else
Always so macho, always so macho oooohh

Machismo loves to fight macho, macho, macho
That you think might is right!
But I know that it just ain't so
Bravado is veneer, and yours is one I see through
You're really insecure and you're afraid I know you

Everyone's watchin' everyone's watchin'
You gotta rule an' call the shots
Always so macho, always so macho
If you could only see yourself
Everyone's watchin' everyone's watchin'
You thing you're cool but baby you're not
Always so macho, always so macho ooooohh

You've got to have your say
Always have to get your way
Don't want Machismo anymore
