Say hello to the modern man
Who does the best, well, that he can
And it's not hard to criticize

He wants to get in the football team
And have a laugh and yell and scream
Well that's no crime... it can be fun sometimes

Oh, he comes for you while you're asleep
Oh, you can't say no it makes you weak.

Say hello to the modern man,
He got nowhere to go, cigarette in his hand
Sits in a plane, swings from a tree
He never had to work like you and me.

That's a fact

He used to care about important things
Like doing his hair and wearing rings
But that was just a phase and he grew out of it.

Now he says, "Hey, look at me,
I got my new boots on down by the sea"
well that's no crime, he does it all the time.

Yes he does.

Oh, he comes for you while you're asleep
Oh, you can't say no it makes you weak.

Say hello to the modern man,
He got nowhere to go, cigarette in his hand
Sits in a plane, swings from a tree
He never had to work like you and me.

That's a well-known fact

The times I dream of, days of old
The men were strong and knights were bold
Modern Man came down among us
Gave us truth, eleven plus
And then he sends us all the dramas
Left us there in our pajamas
Trying hard to see the sun And live a life back on the run

It's true...

He comes for you while you're asleep
Yes he does, yes he does
Oh, you can't say no it makes you weak.

Say hello to the modern man,
He got nowhere to go, cigarette in his hand
Sits on a plane, he swings from a tree
He never had to work like you and me.

Take a look at the modern man
who does the best, well, that he can
and it's not hard to criticize
in fact it can be fun sometimes.
