You are one of them
Everything but femme
I won't be fooled again
You've got the same kind of specs as the sex of men

I believe in Simone de Beauvoir
I believe that life's a film noir
I know the role that you play, so save your clichés
I wasn't born yesterday so don't try to say:

"I'm not typical, and Simone? You are just cynical!
I am better than you think, let me buy you a drink
Cha'mon, I'm not so typical at all"

All men are pigs
All men are pigs
I've seen their tricks
All men are pigs

My logic will prevail
So shut up, nightingale
This is no fairytale
Every single male that I've met 'til this day had a curly tail

I believe it's a poo poo world
Men deceive, that means you too, girl!
So zip it up Romeos, listen Juliets
It's a form of foreplay when you hear them say:

"I'm not typical, and Simone? You are just cynical!
I am better than you think, let me buy you a drink
Cha'mon, I'm not so typical at all"

All men are pigs
All men are pigs
All men are pigs
I've seen their tricks
They know their licks
That get their chicks
All men are pigs
All men but me

"I'm the swan that crashed on your lawn
Yeah, I'm the boy that will heal you, fix you up"

Because I'm not typical
And Simone? You are just cynical!
I am better than you think, let me buy you a drink
Cha'mon, I'm not so typical at all

All men are pigs
All men are pigs
All men are pigs
I've seen their tricks
They know their licks
That get their chicks
All men are pigs

I am better than you think, let me buy you a drink
Cha-mon, I'm not so typical at all

All men are pigs
All men but me

    General CommentThe meaning of the song is fairly straightforward: Cherry criticizes misogynistic men, who are all "pigs." Every man has tried to convince her that he's not one of "them." She makes a reference to historical feminist Simone de Beauvoir.

    I think what most people miss is the first few lines of the song:
    "You are one of them
    Everything but femme
    I won't be fooled again
    You've got the same kind of specs as the sex of men"

    Femme is slang in the lesbian scene for girls who slant more towards the feminine end of the femininity-masculinity spectrum, and Cherry's comment "you've got the same kind of specs as the sex of men" implying that she isn't speaking to a man, but a female with the "specs" of men.

    In other words, the song is addressed to a versatile/butch lesbian. This might seem like I'm grasping at straws, but it makes sense since it's not the first time Studio Killers has incorporated lesbian/bisexual themes in their music. (See: "Jenny" by Studio Killers)
