The Lyrics

Well you never thought you'd hear me say
But as far as man's concerned
I just don't want to cause dismay
Here's some things that really bug you
Well if you should feel you're on display
You should never ask them why
They won't call you on your birthday
Somehow dates they can't remember
Keep buyin', keep lyin'
Seems that you can always count on them for more
That's what men are for
For good wines and bad lines
When you go inside they open doors
That's what men are for

When you sought to question me
You never thought I would agree
You owe me a little thank you
Well you see it's just I am so smart
Cause I ain't no common Joe
If you could only learn to fart
You could be our weakest member

(3x)
Keep silent, denying
Seems that you can always count on them for more
That's what men are for
A good dose of bad jokes
When you go outside they're great big boors
That's what men are for

That's what men are for

If a man speaks in the woods and there is no woman around to hear him, is he still wrong?

"For good wines and bad lines", that pretty much summons up the reason for our existence Tim. BTW: You weren't here when 2nz had his day with "The reasons why women need men" were you?

I don't think he's around to plug for himself right now so I'll do it for him:

If a man speaks of his wood and there is no woman around to hear him, is he still long?

TOS was made in the 80s; it was a #1 hit in 1986. How could you get it wrong?

Thanks Know1.

Dionne, I don't know how it came up under 70's, I put in 1980's, I even went to Amazon.com to verify the era. This was not my fault, unless I hit the mouse wheel before I finalized the entry...
