Graham Parker – Just Like A Man lyrics

Intro A D A A D A E
A D A D E
Just like a man, flexing his muscle and not really usin' it
A D A D E F#m
Just like a fool, making her suffer And stuffing her feelings with cotton wool
D A F#m D A F#m E
Well, forgive him, forgive him

A D E
Just like a man, carrying a picture but seeing in the negative
A D E F#m
Just like a fool, all double standards baby do this but never do that
D A F#m D A F#m D A F#m E
Well, forgive him, forgive him, forgive him

Bridge
E F#m E F#m
He makes her fall, face down into the pillow
E F#m E F#m
Climbing the wall, weeping like a weeping willow
E F#m E
Hands her a tissue he's already used

Just like a man, just like a man
Dragging her under for everything he'll never be
Ripping her asunder, said he didn't really love her anyway
Well, forgive him, forgive him

Instrumental section

Just like a man, thrashing out blindly way out of his depth
Just like a fool, there's no device he won't employ
He even cries like a little boy
E C#m A
Well, forgive him, forgive him Forgive him
D A D A
Just like a man, just like a man
Just like a man, just like a man
