Make love like a man
I'm a man, that's what I am
Come on

All you girls 'round the world
Lookin' for a guy who's a real go-getter, yeah
Every guy, grab a girl
Love her like a man, make her feel a lot better, yeah
Everybody

(You want it) I'm the one
(I got it) I'm Mr. Fun
(You need it) I'm captain cool
(Come get it) and I've come for you
Come on

Don't call me gigolo, don't call me Casanova
Just call me on the phone and baby come on over
When you need someone, when you need someone to

Make love like a man
I'm a man, well, that's what I am, yeah
Make love like a man
Your kind of man, and that's what I am

Oh, every day, every night
Take her little heart
'Til it beat like a hammer, yeah, oh
Come on, do it good, do it right
Crazy little girl, gonna stutter 'n stammer, oh yeah

Don't call me gigolo, don't call me Casanova
Just call me on the phone and baby come on over
When you need someone, when you need someone to

Make love like a man
I'm a man, and that's what I am, yeah
Make love like a man
Your kind of man, and that's what I am

Gimme some rock 'n roll, little bit of rock 'n roll
It's gotta be rock 'n roll, little bit of rock 'n roll

A little bit of love goes a long, long way
Gotta get it on if you really wanna get her
Never ever wait, it's a little too late
Love her like a man, make her feel a lot better

(You want it) yeah, baby

(You need it) oh, oh
(Come get it) oh, come on

Don't call me gigolo, don't call me Casanova
Just call me on the phone and baby come on over
When you need someone (when you need someone)
When you need someone to

Make love like a man
I'm a man, and that's what I am, yeah
Make love like a man
Your kind of man, and that's what I am

Make love, make love
Like a man, like a man
I'm a man, I'm a man, that's what I am, baby
Make love, make love
Like a man, like a man
I'm a man, I'm a man, that's what I am

Hey, get it while you can, make love
I wanna be your man, like a man
Baby understand, I'm a man
I'm a m-m-m-man
Make love, make love
Like a man, like a man
Your kinda man
Oh, love her like a man
She's gonna feel a lot better
And that's a fact

    Man first to comment again, people just don't know good music these days. Neway this song is, according to Joe Elliot (lead singer) "Not us being macho - us trying to be funny - again! Think we'd better stop trying..." This is a great song, real funyn if you listen to it, basically I think its about how you gotta try and make love like a man, hard and proper lol in order to satisfy your lady, and as they say here, don't call them gigolo's, or Cassanova's, call them if you want to have a good time, I think Joe's comments fit it perfectly tho.

    This is what I love about Def Leppard. They don't take themselves seriously at all. I absolutely love this song, and it's one of their best if you ask me.

    This is another one of those Def Leppard "party songs."

    I love the line, "Don't call me gigolo, don't call me Casanova. Just call me on the phone and baby come on over."

    This song really is self-explanatory.

    The key is

    'Every guy grab a girl Love her like a man'

    Basically saying have sex like a grownup. Contrast this with the kid from Let's Get Rocked. He is finally getting his rocks off... and here is the Leps advise to him: Make love like a man.

    Curiously, one is advised to get hold of a girl and not a woman to make love to like a man :)

    A lot of this does sound like bluster tho. Jury still out on how it gets on in the sack.

Fast Car
Tracy Chapman
"Fast car" is kind of a continuation of Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run." It has all the clawing your way to a better life, but in this case the protagonist never makes it with her love; in fact she is dragged back down by him. There is still an amazing amount of hope and will in the lyrics; and the lyrics themselve rank and easy five. If only music was stronger it would be one of those great radio songs that you hear once a week 20 years after it was released. The imagery is almost tear-jerking ("City lights lay out before us", "Speeds so fast felt like I was drunk"), and the idea of starting from nothing and just driving and working and denigrating yourself for a chance at being just above poverty, then losing in the end is just painful and inspiring at the same time.

Son Şansın - Şarkı Sözleri
Hayalperest
This song seemingly tackles the methods of deception those who manipulate others use to get victims to follow their demands, as well as diverting attention away from important issues. They'll also use it as a means to convince people to hate or kill others by pretending acts of terrorism were committed by the enemy when the acts themselves were done by the masters of control to promote discrimination and hate. It also reinforces the idea that these manipulative forces operate in various locations, infiltrating everyday life without detection, and propagate any and everywhere. In general, it highlights the danger of hidden agendas, manipulation, and distraction, serving as a critique of those who exploit chaos and confusion to control and gain power, depicting a cautionary tale against falling into their traps. It encourages us to question the narratives presented to us and remain vigilant against manipulation in various parts of society.

No Surprises
Radiohead
Same ideas expressed in Fitter, Happier are expressed in this song. We're told to strive for some sort of ideal life, which includes getting a good job, being kind to everyone, finding a partner, getting married, having a couple kids, living in a quiet neighborhood in a nice big house, etc. But in Fitter, Happier the narrator(?) realizes that it's incredibly robotic to live this life. People are being used by those in power "like a pig in a cage on antibiotics"--being pacified with things like new phones and cool gadgets and houses while being sucked dry. On No Surprises, the narrator is realizing how this life is killing him slowly. In the video, his helmet is slowly filling up with water, drowning him. But he's so complacent with it. This is a good summary of the song. This boring, "perfect" life foisted upon us by some higher powers (not spiritual, but political, economic, etc. politicians and businessmen, perhaps) is not the way to live. But there is seemingly no way out but death. He'd rather die peacefully right now than live in this cage. While our lives are often shielded, we're in our own protective bubbles, or protective helmets like the one Thom wears, if we look a little harder we can see all the corruption, lies, manipulation, etc. that is going on in the world, often run by huge yet nearly invisible organizations, corporations, and 'leaders'. It's a very hopeless song because it reflects real life.

Amazing
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran tells a story of unsuccessfully trying to feel “Amazing.” This track is about the being weighed down by emotional stress despite valiant attempts to find some positivity in the situation. This track was written by Ed Sheeran from the perspective of his friend. From the track, we see this person fall deeper into the negative thoughts and slide further down the path of mental torment with every lyric.
