"Deadly Handsome Man" as written by and John K. Wozniak....
Some cats, they know how to fight
Some cats run
I'm a thousand generations ahead of them
Cool as they come

See, all my suits are Calvin Klein
My lucky number's 69
I got all the things I need
It's the nature of my breed

I'm independent
Smooth and confident
Always in command
With a graceful element
A tasteful compliment

Do you know who I am?
(Look up, look down, watch out, the tiger's on the town tonight)
I'm a deadly handsome man
(Look up, look down, watch out, the tiger's on the town tonight)
I'm the lion and the lamb
(Look up, look down, watch out, the tiger's on the town tonight)

Everywhere I go I make the scene
The ladies love to stroke me
Yeah
Pimped out and lazy in my limousine
Oh, come on in here, sweetie

Everything I say...like Socrates
Most people love to quote me
My real name is Mephistopheles
But you can call me Baby

See, all my suits are Calvin Klein
My lucky number's 69
I got all the things I need
It's the nature of my breed

I'm independent
Smooth and confident
Always in command
With a graceful element
A tasteful compliment
Do you know who I am?

(Look up, look down, watch out, the tiger's on the town tonight)
I'm a deadly handsome man
(Look up, look down, watch out, the tiger's on the town tonight)
I'm the lion and the lamb

(Look up, look down, watch out, the tiger's on the town tonight)
I'm a deadly handsome man
(Look up, look down, watch out, the tiger's on the town tonight)
I'm the lion and the lamb

He's a deadly handsome man
Deadly handsome man
He's a deadly handsome man
He's a deadly handsome man

Deadly
That's me
Deadly handsome man
Deadly

That's me
Deadly handsome man
Deadly
That's me

Deadly handsome man
Jet Li
Bruce Lee
Deadly handsome man

    General CommentThis song is about cool cats like myself who know where they got it going on and how they got there, "smooth and confident," and know what the ladies want, "the ladies love to stroke me."
    Annoying people who seem to attract attention wherever they go and people think they're better humans just for knowing us ("everywhere I go, I make the scene") and our names get dropped around - "Oh, me and Charise were at this totally bum opening night at Sharkfin but then Steven John showed up and things went out the roof! ..he's such a deadly handsome man!"

    General CommentI agree with Steven.
    No need to stand up or back down I'll cruise right through.

    It's also almost the complete opposite personality of John in real life.

    Great song.

    General CommentThis song is SO catchy.
    I introduced two of my old friends to it, and it became an antham of ours while going on trips to concerts.

    General CommentMaybe it's about temptation or something like that.

    Mephistopheles is another name for Satan.

    And it fits in with the rest of the song too.

    Just occured to me while reading it, that it could be that.

    General Commenti think hes just mocking the typical arrogant alpha male types. cuz ive met him and yeah he doesnt seem like that at all. hes a really really nice guy and wears regular clothes (not calvin klein =p) so i really think hes just sort of making fun of guys who think that being driven around in limos and wearing designer clothes make the world revolve around them. maybe hes actually referring to someone he knows, the line "do you know who i am?" like hes playing a guessing game and the rest of the lines are clues to who hes talking about? maybe? hmmmmm
