A Man (Album Version)

A Man (Album Version)

Alanis Morissette

I am a man as a man i´ve been told
Bacon is brought to the house in this mold
Born of your bellies I yearn for the cord
Years I have groveled repentance ignored

And I have been blamed
And I have been repented
I'm working my way toward our union mended

I am a man who has grown from a son
Been crucified by enraged women
I am a son who was raised by such men
I'm often reminded of the fools i´m among

And I have been shamed
And I have relented
I'm working my way toward our union mended
And I have been shamed
And I have repented
I'm working my way toward our union mended

We don't fare well with endless reprimands
We don't do well with a life served as a sentence
This won't work well if you´re hell bent on your offense
I am a man who understands your reticence

I am a man who still does what he can
To dispel our archaic reputation
I am a man who has heard all he can
Cause I don't fare well with endless punishment

Cause I have been blamed and I have repented
I'm working my way toward our union mended
And we have been blamed and we have repented
I'm working my way toward our union mended
