Oh, I have got a riddle for you
a god had split all time in two
And took one part to tell and show
and tell and show me why I know, hit me

Oh, my life was split in two
and why, oh why, an X for you
and thrust into the middle
letters that the Greeks destroyed
and buried us all up to our necks in little boys

It's a man's world
There's nothing left for you to do
when we've got our eyes on you
It's a man's world
There's nothing left for you to do
when we've got our hands on you

Oh, my mind was split in two
a Y, oh why an X for you?
And thrust into the middle
letters that the Greeks deployed
to bury us all up to our necks in little boys
Get me

It's a man's world
There's not much left for us to do
when they've got their eyes on you
It's a man's world
And there's something left for us to do
while they've got their hands on you

The little girls at the back of the classroom
are staring into my eyes
The little boys in the front of the classroom
are staring into my eyes
And all the while all we could do was just frown
while you turned and looked the other way
And all the girls you turned your backs on us
I said yeah
