I saw the work you did
Can't stop myself from laughing
One word diastrous
No point in even trying
I saw the labor slave
For weeks without you sleeping
There's nothing here to save
So go on with your weeping

Cause men don't shed no tears
(Ain't gonna shed no tears, no)
Cause men don't shed no tears
(Ain't gonna shed no tears no more)
Cause men don't shed no tears
(Ain't gonna shed no tears)
Cause men don't shed no tears

Go and break your nose
Add some scars and watch it grow
Spit out through your teeth and laugh at your pain
Go and kill your food
Cuss and curse and act a fool
So much work to do it hurts me to say
...Slave

You're labeled sensitive
By choice and not no matter
The crying shoulder cares
The mushy heart that splattes
Shamed your ancestry, the hunters and the gatherers
So you can cry their names
And go on with your weeping

Cause men don't shed no tears
(Ain't gonna shed no tears, no)
Cause men don't shed no tears
(Ain't gonna shed no tears no more)
Cause men don't shed no tears
(Ain't gonna shed no tears)
Cause men don't shed no tears

Go and break your nose
Add some scars and watch it grow
Spit out through your teeth and laugh at your pain
Go and kill your food
Cussin and a-cursin and act a fool
So much work to do it hurts me to say....

Work you did, work you do
Work you did, work you do
Work you did, work you do
Work you did, work you do

You could turn a town into a city
But you can't make it civilized
And you might think a friend is a foe
But you can't make him walk your line

And you might say that a man is a monkey
But a monkey won't ever lie
And you could change a million minds
But don't you fuck with mine

It's not your life
So sacrifice
It's not your life
So sacrifice
It's not your life
It's not your life
It's not your life

You might turn a town into a city
But you can't make it civilized
And you might think a friend is a foe
But you can't make him walk down
Walk down your line

And you might say that a man is a monkey
But a monkey won't ever lie
And you could change a million minds
But don't you fuck with mine

It's not your life
So sacrifice
It's not your life
So sacrifice
It's not your life
It's not your life

It's not your life
