You don't fool me with your tinted eyes and make-up
The firebird hides in shadow when you wake up
Your golden hair is black
Your jeans are tight but your hide is slack
Try it on the company but you don't fool me

Well I'd rather be a man than play my role like you do
I'd rather be a man than sin my soul like you do
I'd rahter be a man than slave the way that you do
I'd rather be a man cause a man don't crawl like you do

You don't fool me with your easy lies and fables
You won't see me in ten buck furs and sables
You sparkle like a snake
The wine is real but the glass if fake
Blame it on the apple tree but you don't fool me

Well I'd rather be a man than play my role like you do
I'd rather be a man than sin my soul like you do
I'd rahter be a man than slave the way that you do
I'd rather be a man cause a man don't crawl like you do

Your golden hair is black
Your jeans are tight but your hide is slack
Try it on the company but you don't fool me

Well I'd rather be a man than play my role like you do
I'd rather be a man than sin my soul like you do
I'd rahter be a man than slave the way that you do
I'd rather be a man cause a man don't crawl like you do

I'd rather be a man cause a man don't crawl like you do

I'd rather be a man cause I wouldn't wanna be like you

    My InterpretationThe firebird hides in shadow when you wake up=-In the historical record, the phoenix "could symbolize renewal in general as well as the sun, time, the empire, metempsychosis, consecration, resurrection, life in the heavenly Paradise, Christ, Mary, virginity, the exceptional man, and certain aspects of Christian life
    Your golden hair is black You don't fool me with your easy lies and fables=Bible
    You won't see me in ten buck furs and sables=God
    The wine is real but the glass is fake=The wine is in a religious prop
    Blame it on the apple tree but you don't fool me=There you go with the big reveal. Blaming Eve for all the hardships in our lives. She ate the apple, and now we must suffer Alan is calling bullshit on that fable. He's blaming God himself.
    The album is titled "EVE" and the models are each wearing a chalice.
    This is a verbal attack at God. How anyone can deduce that this song is about a boy/girl or man/woman relationship is beyond me.
