"Manchild" as written by Merrill Martin Garbus and Nathaniel J Brenner....
When [?] cause I'm not sure

Not gonna say yes when what I really mean is no
Not gonna say no unless you know I mean it

I mean it
Don't beat up on my body
I mean it
Don't beat up on my body

I've got something to say
Oh little manchild
Look at your pants
An accident happens each time we dance
Oh there were some times
Among the other times
When I could stand to do this little jig with you
Left right right left

It's time to mean it

I've got something to say

Not gonna say yes when what I really mean is no
Not gonna say no unless you know I mean it

I mean it
Don't beat up on my body
I mean it
Don't beat up on my body

I've got something to say
Oh little manchild
Look at your pants
I've got something to say
Happens each time we dance
I've got something to say
(Oh little manchild
Look at your pants)
I've got something to say

    General Commentyeah i love how the title is "manchild" because this song is allll abt male entitlement, especially in sexual situations. society fosters an attitude in men that too often leads to a line of thinking that not only can they get whatever they want from other men and especially women, but that they deserve it. hence rape and abuse (not to say men are the only rapists/abusers but most men grow up in a world that fosters a sense of entitlement and sense of violence in them particularly.) uhh this is a neat way to end the album i think. v good !
