"I'm Not A Man"
(Morrissey/Jesse Tobias)


These words are transcribed without permission the way they appear in Morrissey's "World Peace Is None Of Your Business" album. Additions to the printed lyrics are in darker text while omissions are striken out.

Don Juan
wife-beater vest
cold hand
ice man
warring caveman
well, if this is what it takes
to describe
I'm not a man

ah, but lonely
well, if this is what it takes
to describe
I'm not a man
I'm not a man
I'm something much bigger
and better than a man

hombre, ole
well, if these are terms you'd use
to describe
oh, I'm shaking!
look at me - I'm quaking!
True grit, true blue
kill crazy!
so very manly of you!
you are the soldier
who won't get much older
you are the Slow Joe
who signed up to go

Wolf down, wolf down
T-bone steak
wolf down
cancer of the prostate
ways to sit, and of course
ways to stand
I'm not a man!
I'm not a man!
no big fat locker-room
hockey-jock laughing
I am not a man!
I'd never kill or eat
an animal
and I never would destroy
this planet I'm on
well... what do you think I am
...a man ?
