Robinson, Tom - Hard Lyrics




Men are husbands, men are dads
Casanovas, Jack the Lads

Men are brothers, men are sons
Pray their fathers' will be done
Men of science, men of God
Men of action, in a squad
Men are Real and men are New
And men are people just like you
So hard

Men are friendly, men are flip
Laugh a lot and give you lip
Men are crazy, men are kind
Men are angels, men are swine
In the movies, men are brave
Seldom ever misbehave
Macho men are all the rage
Selling jeans and aftershave
Men are sexy, men are sweet
Men are faithful, never cheat
Men are tough and never cry
Men are truthful, never lie, and it's
So hard

Men are restless, men are shy
Commit themselves, they'd rather die
Hide their feelings with a front
Say 'I love you' when they're drunk
Throw their clothes off in a heap
Crawl in bed and fall asleep
Kiss you quick and say goodbye
And I should know, 'cause I'm a guy
Men are sexy, men are sweet
Men are faithful, never cheat
Men are tough and never cry
Men are truthful, never lie, and it's
So hard... to be a man

At the factory, at the pool
At the match or sat in school
Riding bikes or making deals
Sat behind a driving wheel
In the playground, in the pub
In the bedroom, there's the rub
Boys impersonating men
And I should know, I'm one of them
Men are sexy, men are sweet
Men are faithful, never cheat
Men are tough and never cry
Men are truthful, never lie
Clever men with clever brains
Spend the weekend watching trains
Handsome men with happy lives
Damaged men with damaged wives
So hard... they're
So hard... and it's
So hard... to be a man

    Great track, heard it on the radio back in mid-90's.

  5. David Cooper

    First heard this on bbc glr radio back in the early 90's along with days that changed the world. Tom is great as an artist & presenter. I will say I am not gay & I am right wing. Music bridges all people. Happy Christmas (today is Christmas day)
