Negative FX – Feel Like A Man Lyrics



Yeah, no clever title for this post. Just what it says on the tin. There’s a few online interpretations of the song that are worth reading for a laugh, but as far as I know the actual lyrics have never been printed and some of them are hard to make out on the recording. One of my bands even covered the song a few times and I made up the bits I didn’t know. I sent a message to Choke the other night asking what the actual lyrics are, and luckily he had a minute before Slapshot had to load out of a gig in Germany so he just typed them out on his phone. Two thousand and sixteen, ladies and gentlemen. Nice one, Mr Kelly. Let the covers commence.

Negative FX – Feel Like A Man

Too much fighting in the streets
We don’t recognize who we’re for
I see you and you see me
We’ve got to fight for just one cause
What can you do when you’re in the dumps
Social stature keeps you down
Obey the rules, keep in line
Do what they want and everything’s fine

Do what they say and maybe someday
I’ll feel like a man and do what they tell me to x2

It’s a crime saying all is fine
Then they turn and stab your back
Use your fists that’s what they’re for
Use your fists or they’ll close the door
See the rich they’re so neat
Now see the poor living on the street
The rich have everything to survive
The poor have to fight to stay alive.

Chorus x (whatever)
