Amy Winehouse - What It Is About Men Lyrics




Understand once he was a family man
So surely I would never, ever go through it first hand
Emulate all the shit my mother hated
I can't help but demonstrate my Freudian fate

My alibi for taking your guy
History repeats itself, it fails to die
And animal aggression is my downfall
I don't care 'bout what you got I want it all

It's bricked up in my head, it's shoved under my bed
And I question myself again, "What is it 'bout men?"
My destructive side has grown a mile wide
And I question myself again, "What is it 'bout men?"
What is it 'bout men?

I'm nurturing, I just wanna do my thing
And I'll take the wrong man as naturally as I sing
And I'll save my tears for uncovering my fears
Our behavioural patterns that stick over the years

'Cause it's bricked up in my head, it's shoved under my bed
And I question myself again, "What is it 'bout men?"
Now my destructive side has grown a mile wide
And I question myself again, "What is it 'bout men?"

Ooh it's bricked up in my head, and it's shoved under my bed
And I question myself again, "Now what is it 'bout men?"
My destructive side, has grown a mile wide
And I question myself again, "What is it 'bout men?"
What is it 'bout men?

    I love the fret buzz on the guitar on this thing. So raw and melancholic. Listen to that 20 second outro. I must mention Amy's sublime vocals as well.

  12. Ana Arbona

    vellos de punta, única! <3

  13. Ça ne Vous regarde pas bande de fils indignes fdp

    It's about her being confused in between the need of sex or of her daddy's love ? And just 9yr old Amy losing her daddy to another woman, and her repeating the history of her family without meaning to completely because it's just how it is with men.. :(

  14. riqwe e

  23. Lefty Jones

    Understand, once he was a family man
    So surely I would never, ever go through it first hand
    Emulate all the shit my mother hates
    I can't help but demonstrate my Freudian fate
    My alibi for taking your guy
    History repeats itself, it fails to die
    And animal aggression is my downfall
    I don't care about what you got, I want it all

    [Chorus]
    It's bricked up in my head, It's shoved under my bed
    And I question myself again "What is it 'bout men?"
    My destructive side has grown a mile wide
    And I question myself again "What is it 'bout men?"
    What is it 'bout men?

    [Verse 2]
    I'm nurturing, I just wanna do my thing
    And I'll take the wrong man as naturally as I sing
    And I'll save my tears for uncovering my fears
    Our behavioral patterns that stick over the years

    [Chorus]
    It's bricked up in my head, It's shoved under my bed
    And I question myself again "What is it 'bout men?"
    My destructive side has grown a mile wide
    And I question myself again "What is it 'bout men?"
    What is it 'bout men?

    [Chorus]
    It's bricked up in my head, It's shoved under my bed
    And I question myself again "What is it 'bout men?"
    My destructive side has grown a mile wide
    And I question myself again "What is it 'bout men?"
    What is it 'bout men?

  46. Brooke Bryan

    Understand, once he was a family man
    So surely I would never, ever go through it first hand
    Emulate all the shit my mother hated
    I can't help but demonstrate my Freudian fate

    My alibi for taking your guy
    History repeats itself, it fails to die
    And animal aggression is my downfall
    I don't care 'bout what you got, I want it all

    It's bricked up in my head, it's shoved under my bed
    And I question myself again, "What is it about men?"
    My destructive side has grown a mile wide
    And I question myself again, "What is it about men? What is it about men?"

    I'm nurturing, I just wanna do my thing
    And I'll take the wrong man as naturally as I sing
    And I'll save my tears for uncovering my fears
    Our behavioral patters that stick over the years

    'Cause it's…

  55. vivi love

    This song is speaking to me right now. Fucken men!! lmfao

  56. tecdessus

    She wrote this while still a teenager , the insight and maturity of the lyrics ...while others of her age and older blab ´ i love you baby baby baby baby´.. Listen to the North Sea Jazz Festival live version, it´s way better this album track.

    Andrea M

    tecdessus yes, I go with you, but it appear on the credits that she co-wrote this with a few others. Truth. Really awesome, touching and strong song.

    Jeri Mccombs

    She was tellin us about. Her cheating Dad
    Her hurt and the rest
    ..love Her so much

    tecdessus

    Andrea M True, but I am pretty certain that the lyrics are all hers.

  57. Rose Cerqueira

    Mitch seu safado essa música a Amy fala de você

  59. Lisa Robson

    It's bricked up in my head, shoved under my bed,
    And I question myself again.
    What is it 'bout men?

    I'm nurturing. I just wanna do my thing
    And I'll take the wrong man as naturally as I sing
    Our behavioural past is thick over the years
    'Cause it's bricked up in my head, it's shoved under my bed
    And I question myself again, what is it 'bout men?

  60. Susie Q Norton

    Amy Winehouse is one of a kind! there's no one that could top and do what she is done she's needed no filter she was always performing live.
    true Talent from the soul that's why she did not want to be part of the music industry..
    I saw her documentary I
    it touched me deeply!! I haven't gotten her out of my mind since I saw her documentary it just kills me to know that she died too damn young!!
    I wish I would have known her like a frnd I would have not let the effing demonic music industry tear her apart!
    :'( :'( :'(
    R.I.P Amy Whitehouse
    you are a true legend an angel in heaven ♥️ ♥️

  61. Susie Q Norton

    Amy was her own talent and I don't ever want to compare her to any other performer out of respect to her artistry. She was unique in her own powerful way but.... I just can't help but think that this particular song gives me strong Lauryn Hill vibes.
