Feel the fire, feel my love inside you it's so right
There's the sound and the smell of love in my mind
I'm a toy, come and play with me, say the word now
Wrap your legs around mine and ride me tonight

I'm a man, I'm a goddess
I'm a man, well I'm a virgin
I'm a man, I'm a blue movie
I'm a man, I'm a bitch
I'm a man, I'm a geisha
I'm a man, I'm a little girl
And we make love together

Slip and slide in your wet delight, feel the blood flow
Not too fast, don't be slow, my love's in your hands

I'm a man, I'm a boy
I'm a man, well I'm your mother
Yes, I'm a man, I'm a one night stand
I'm a man, am I bi?
I'm a man, I'm a slave
I'm a man, I'm a little girl
And we make love together
And we make love together

Skin to skin, tongue to ooh, come on honey hold tight
Come inside, it's a passion play just for you
Let's get lost in that magic place all alone now
Drink your fill from my fountain of love, wet your lips

I'm a man, I'm a teaser
I'm a man, well I'm a virgin
I'm a man, I'm a one night stand
I'm a man, I'm a drug
I'm a man, well I'm your slave
I'm a man, I'm a dream divine
And we make love together

I'm a man, I'm a goddess
I'm a man, I'm a hooker
Yes, I'm a man, I'm a blue movie
You know I'm a man, I'm a slut
I'm a man, I'm babe
I'm a man, I'm a dream divine
And we make love together
And we'll make love forever

    I'm going to go out on a limb and say this song might have something to do with sex. What do you think?

    Actually I saw an interview with the lead singer and she said it was about her sex life and how she liked to role play and do all these different things, and the guy just wanted to do kinda the same thing over and over so basically she's playing up all these different roles and he's just... himself.

    I'm surprised this song hasn't generated more comments and controversy. Truthfully, of all of Berlins' songs, I got tired of this one fastest (talk about "overplayed"), but it is an interesting and thought provoking song. The objectification of the woman, contrasted to the man, is an interesting line of thought, and one has to carefully consider who is truly the object here. The role of the man is so much less defined in this song, so much more ambiguous.

    I think it's a statement about human sexuality. The male voice keeps saying "I'm a man" and the female voice says she is different things. It's saying that a man is a man and not defined by his sexuality, and a woman is defined by how a man perceives her during sex. She can be his "babe", a hooker, etc., but he is just a man.

    I absolutely love the synth in this track. So hypnotic. So 80s.

    My Interpretation
    I had to laugh at the comments here that this is about objectification of women. Terri Nunn, the lead singer, was and is very, very sexual. Today we'd say she's very, very "sex positive" but that term wasn't in use yet back then. This song is mostly about getting attention for the band with what was at the time a deliberately shocking, controversial song. But aside from that, the meaning of the lyrics is about her having a lot of fun with role-playing in sex while a bit frustrated that her man doesn't want to role-play too. BTW the man she was frustrated with that way wasn't John Crawford, the man in the band who sings with her and co-wrote the song and acts with her in the video. She was never lovers with any of the band members. Just to give one example of how sex positive Terri Nunn was and how comfortable she was with her sexuality, when she was just 16 years old she lied about her age and posed nude for Penthouse magazine. I've been a big fan of Berlin since "No More Words" and its album "Love Live" were released in '84, but "Sex (I'm A...)" was always my least favorite of Berlin's songs. If you're not familiar with them, go to youtube and listen their song "Now It's My Turn".
