Mr. Macho loves his women with such dedication
Second only to his car that drives as fast as light
On a highway, bad jetfighters come from all directions
Shooting verbal missiles, find their target right on sight....

In the office, things get rough as action is diminished
Staring at a paper, he is lost inside his head
Dreaming of a battlefield with guns and ammunition
All around the bodies of the wounded and the dead

'Cause he's tough as nails
He's such a live wire

Now it's time for football and a bout with heavy drinking
Holding so much liquor makes him feel like a man
As he drifts out on the sea on a ship that's slowly sinking
Quietly salutes himself and the courage he once had

'Cause he's tough as nails
He's such a live wire

Walking round and round in circles
Waking up in a cold sweat
Falling down a stairway
And the TV dinner's not done yet
Smash a window; crash a car
And buy a pair of leather shoes
Take a sweetheart to a movie
Cash a check and pay some dues

Walking round and round in circles....
