Dr. Frank – Institutionalized Misogyny lyrics

I'm not complaining, I'm just figuring out
How everything left us behind
I got my problems, I'm aware of them
I'll take care of them, never you mind
You're still repeating pre-recorded things
They used to say in universities
And books on left wing politics and law
About underlying structures
That so far as they mean anything
Still won't support the personal connections that you draw

Institutionalized misogyny
That's all that stands between my baby and me

Now science tells us I'm hard-wired to, I'm required to
Do it with you
'Cause I'm a man, and you're a woman
And that's what those kind of people do

I stole that line from Woody Allen
Isn't it amusing?
I wish I could make you understand
What Woody Allen meant.
If there's no such thing as objective reality
Why can't we quit our jobs and just imagine
We won't have to pay the rent

Institutionalized misogyny
That's why they're charging rent
To my baby and me

Michelle, ma belle: ton beau, Michel Foucault
A Foucault dependent is always ready to go
I think we're alone
I might have known
She's got Chomsky on the phone

Institutionalized misogyny
That's all that stands between my baby and me.
