Men and women, take II

Ok, I’m a little behind the times, but I heard this song for the first time this afternoon on the way home from work and I laughed out loud and immediately thought, “I have to blog that!”

Actually, it goes with this post about what makes men and women both wonderful. Lyrics are below in case you can’t understand, don’t like country music (Hi, Terri!) or I can’t get this video to embed.

When you see a deer you see Bambi
And I see antlers up on the wall
When you see a lake you think picnics
And I see a large mouth up under that log
You’re probably thinking that you’re gonna change me
In some ways well maybe you might
Scrub me down, dress me up aww but no matter what
Remember, I’m still a guy

When you see a priceless French painting
I see a drunk, naked girl
You think that ridin’ a wild bull sounds crazy
And I’d like to give it a whirl
Well love makes a man do some things he ain’t proud of
And in a weak moment I might walk your sissy dog, hold your purse at the mall
But remember, I’m still a guy

And I’ll pour out my heart
Hold your hand in the car
Write a love song that makes you cry
Then turn right around knock some jerk to the ground
‘Cause he copped a feel as you walked by

I can hear you now talkin’ to your friends
Saying, “Yeah girls he’s come a long way”
From draggin’ his knuckles and carryin’ a club
And buildin’ a fire in a cave
But when you say a backrub means only a backrub
Then you swat my hand when I try
Well now, what can I say at the end of the day
Honey, I’m still a guy

And I’ll pour out my heart
Hold your hand in the car
Write a love song that makes you cry
Then turn right around knock some jerk to the ground
‘Cause he copped a feel as you walked by

These days there’s dudes gettin’ facials
Manicured, waxed and botoxed
With deep spray-on tans and creamy lotiony hands
You can’t grip a tacklebox

Yeah ith all of these men linin’ up to get neutered
It’s hip now to be feminized
I don’t highlight my hair
I’ve still got a pair
Yeah honey, I’m still a guy

Oh my eyebrows ain’t plucked
There’s a gun in my truck
Oh thank God, I’m still a guy

  1. Sarah!!!! That was just way cool. I’m sitting here in my office, headphones on, killing myself laughing. You’ve got to admit that country definitely provides occasional moments of classic comic relief.

    Thanks for the pick me up, and the reminder of how much fun it is that we really are different in important ways…

    Right, I’m off to YouTube to find something good to link to πŸ™‚

  2. Hehe. You’re welcome. Yes…it’s definitely comic. It’s not very often that I get where I’m going but don’t get out of my car because I have to finish the song, but that’s what this one did to me. Happy linking…

  3. Tammy

    Sarah
    Ha Ha Ha Ha
    What a rip!!!!! I loved it!
    And yes i will say (Terri, ha ha)

  4. Glad you liked it πŸ˜‰ Poor Terri…

    πŸ˜‰

  5. harumph…you managed to hit two of my triggers in one post: country music and gender stuff. i get a little bugged when someone thinks they know something about me because i have female body parts. i’m pretty sure it’s just that i haven’t really evolved enough or something like that. i’ll take this as a little love tap. πŸ™‚

  6. harumph, huh? Ok, I admit that part of why it was so funny to me was that I fit into, like, almost none of the “female” categories in the song. So…yeah…a love tap πŸ˜‰

  7. funny song. ;o)

    and i’m with terri on the gender thing; few things get me fuming like being pigeon-holed because i have a uterus {and i have an 80-page senior thesis to prove it, fellow biolans!!}.

    at end of the day, i have to realize that stereotypes exist because they are, to some extent, true. not universal, but they exist.

    pitting those two types together? frickin’ hilarious. truly. ;o)

  8. definitely…and what in the world did you write your thesis on? stereotypes in literature? just wondering…having trouble figuring it out from your comments here.

  9. if i remember correctly, kirsten’s thesis was a reinterpretation on romeo and juliet . . . and perhaps a couple other shakespeare plays. right, kirst?

    oh boy, i remember you in session once you cracked the romeo and juliet gender issue!

  10. wow…that’s impressive. r and j always bugged me, somehow.

  11. don’t know if anyone will see this, but i was just checking up on this & saw a comment about my senior thesis …

    the larger thesis was that the church’s standards for women’s roles &/or behavior stems largely from values that were cultural (i.e., primarily victorian) rather than biblical. i ruffled a few feathers with that one. :o)

    my paper on romeo & juliet happened sophomore year, i believe. oh, don’t get me started … i could rewrite that thesis here, too!! r & j is neither romantic or what shakespeare is saying is true love (at least, that’s my assessment of what he’s saying). ;o)

    gonna cut myself off of that topic now …

  12. hehe. ah, the passion of the torreyite, see how it devours conversation when freed into the wild…

  13. Women do have the tougher job of the two sexes having to go through all of the morning sickness, the labor and even carrying around an extra 15 to 25 pounds preparing to give birth to children.
    So I honor the ladies in the world and it has to do more than just body parts. the world that is so sexualized fails to realize and account for emotions. I am thankful that God has made the sexes so far different. It is hard to fathom sometimes. But His ways are not our ways. I salute the value that ladies bring into the world!!!
