Capo 2
Dmaj7      xx0222
A*         x02225

D               Dmaj7            A             A*
When a ship is sinking and they lower the lifeboats
     G                             D
And hand out the lifejackets, the men keep on their coats
D                  Dmaj7            A                A*
The women and the children are the ones who must go first
         G                                   D
And the men who try to save their skins are cowards and are cursed

G                       D
Every man's a captain, men know how to drown
A                                   G            D
Man the lifeboats if there's room, otherwise go down

And it's the same when there's a war on; it's the men who go to fight
Women and children are civilians, when they're killed it's not right
Men kill men in uniform; it's the way war goes
When they run they're cowards, when they stay they are heroes

Every man's a general, men go off to war
The battlefield's a man's world; cannon fodder's what they're for

It's the men who have the power; it's the men who have the might
And the world's a place of horror; because each man think he's right
A man's home is his castle, so the family let him in
But what's important in that kingdom, is the women and children

A husband and a father, every man's a king
But he's really just a drone, gathers no honey has no sting

Have pity on the general, the king and the captain
They know they're expendable, after all they're men
