OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
*They buy you dinner, open your door
Other than that, what are they good for?
Men! I'm talkin' 'bout men!

Allemande left and weave
**They all want a girl just like the girl
That married dear old Dad - they make me SO mad!
Men! I'm talkin' 'bout men!


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*They make their noise, they like their toys,
They're nothin' but a bunch of overgrown boys!


**You can't beat 'em up, cuz they're bigger than you!
You can't live with 'em, and you just can't shoot 'em!


*You can't beat 'em up, cuz they're bigger than you
You can't live with 'em, and you just can't shoot 'em


** They're all silver-tongued devils!
Yeah, they're lyin' through their teeth


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads (Sides) you promenade, halfway 'round you go
Down the middle star thru and then pass thru
Touch 1/4, walk & dodge
Partner trade, and a right & left thru
Pass the ocean, recycle
Swing that corner girl, and promenade her too
Men! I'm talkin' 'bout men!


TAG

They'll tell you anything just to sweep you off your feet!
Men! Talkin' 'bout men! Mere mortal men!

 
Lyrics

They buy you dinner, open your door
Other then that, what are they good for?
Men! I'm talkin' 'bout men
They all want a girl just like the girl
That married dear old dad, they make me so mad

Men! I'm talkin' 'bout men
Well, you can't beat 'em up 'cause they're bigger then you
You can't live with 'em and you just can't shoot 'em
Men! I'm talkin' 'bout men

They love their toys, they make their noise
They're nothing but a bunch of overgrown boys
Men! I'm talking 'bout men
If you give 'em what they want, they never fall in love
Don't give 'em nothin', they can't get enough

Men! I'm talking 'bout men
Well, you can't beat 'em up 'cause they're bigger then you
You can't live with 'em and you just can't shoot 'em
Men! I'm talkin' 'bout men

In the beginning they always aim to please
They serve a purpose, they fill a need
They ensure survival of the species

They take you for a ride, run out of gas
Most of the time they're a pain in the a-a yeah, yeah
Men! I'm talkin' 'bout men
Well, you can't beat 'em up 'cause they're bigger then you
You can't live with 'em and you just can't shoot 'em
Men! I'm talkin' 'bout men

Silver tongue devils
Well, they're lying through their teeth
Saying anything
Just to sweep you off your feet
Ooh yeah, men! talkin' 'bout men
Mere mortal men

Lyrics by Robert Byrne and Alan Schulman.
Recorded by The Forester Sisters.
