Well, I watch you tangle every weekend
It might start different but it ends up the same
One minute you're casually speaking
The next it all goes up and you pour feul up on the flame with your
Jeri can of words and songs

Noone's gonna start a revolution
So why do we even moan?
And there's something that Frankie used to say, apparently
Oh, he said settle for a draw
Cause you're not gonna get no more
So you should settle for a draw
I've told you once I'm sure
I've told you once I'm sure you should settle for the draw
Why don't you settle for the draw?

Well you're right it is one set of rules for her
But then another set for you
But that's just the way it is, I suppose
And there's nowt you can do
And let's not fall in the trap of answering back
I am just a beginner
But I know she'll be the winner
That's for sure
So take the draw if it's available

And if it sets on fire
Don't get out your jeri can of
Words and songs

Noone's gonna start a revolution
So you better leave it well alone
And there's something that Frankie used to say, apparently
Oh, he said settle for a draw
Cause you're not gonna get no more
So you should settle for a draw
I've told you once I'm sure
I've told you once I'm sure you should settle for the draw

    General CommentSo why do we even moan?? I hear "so we best leave it well alone" ... maybe that doesnt make sense.

    I think its about a couple who are constantly arguing with each other but neither one can really win the argument. I dont know, thats just what I get from it.

    General CommentI love how this song sounds.
    I agree with BoHo, i think this
    song's about compromise and
    just getting over it.

    General CommentI think it's about a relationships in general, and how men will never really win a argument, so they should settle for a draw..

    About how men can't fight back "They have different rules for men and women."

    And how women will always have control in a "healthy" relationship "No one's gonna start a revolution, so you better just leave it well alone."
