"Woman Like a Man" as written by and Damien George Rice....
I need a piss
Wanna hate
Fuck it up
Come

My love
Eat your meat
Keep your teeth
Run

You lost me
You cost me
You thought me of me, yeah

We're bad
What we do
Stupid fools

You wanna get boned
You wanna get stoned
You wanna get a room like no-one else

You wanna be rich
You wanna be kitsch
You wanna be the bastard of yourself

You wanna get burned
You wanna get turned
You wanna get fucked inside out

You wanna be ruled
You wanna be fooled
You wanna be a woman like a man
Like a, like a, like a

Woman like a man, like a man
Like a woman like a man, treat you like a man
Woman like a man, woman like a man
Like a woman like a man, woman like a man

Woman like a man, like a man
Like a woman like a man, woman like a man
Woman like a man, like a man
Like a woman like a man, like a man

I need a hit
Want to wait
Suck it up
Cum

My love
Eat your meat
Itchy feet
Run

You reach me
You bleach me
You teach me of me, how familiar

We're bad
What we do
Stupid fools

You wanna get boned
You wanna get stoned
You wanna get a room like no-one else

You wanna be rich
You wanna be kitsch
You wanna be the bastard of yourself

You wanna get burned
You wanna get turned
You wanna get fucked inside out

You wanna be ruled
You wanna be fooled
You wanna be a woman like a man
Like a woman, like a

Woman like a man, like a man
Like a woman like a man, woman like a man
Woman like a man, like a man
Like a woman like a man, treat you like a man

Like a man, like a woman like a man
Like a woman like a man, treat you like a man
Woman like a man, woman like a man
Like a woman like a man, like a man

You wanna get boned
You wanna get stoned
You wanna get a room like no-one else

You wanna be rich
You wanna be kitsch
You wanna be the bastard of yourself

You wanna get burned
You wanna get turned
You wanna get fucked inside out

You wanna be ruled
You wanna be fooled
You wanna be a woman like a man
Like a woman, like a, like a man

Treat you like a man
Like a man, man, man, man, man
Like a man, man, man, man
Treat you like a man, man, man, man, man, man
Like a man

Woman like a man, like a man
Treat you like a man, woman like a man
Woman like a man, like a man
Like a woman like a man, treat you like a man

Woman like a man, treat you like a man
Treat you like a man, woman like a man
Woman like a man, like a man, like a man, oh

Woman like a man, like a man
Treat you like a man, woman like a man
Woman like a man, like a man
Like a woman like a man, woman like a man

Woman like a man, treat you like a man
Woman like a man, woman like a man
Woman like a man, woman like a man
Woman like a man, like a man

    General CommentI can see where people are coming from, but I don't believe this song is about equality. It's true that a lot of men just want to have sex, and that's true for a lot of women now too, but that's not looked at as a positive thing. When someone just wants to "fuck" someone else, that isn't healthy. I believe he's showing regret about their relationship. He's saying that he only wants her for sex, too, and that's the reason why he hates this girl so much; She reminds him of her. Which can definitely be felt in the lines, "You reach me, you bleach me, you teach me of me. How familiar." She's getting to him, and he's surprised she has the upper hand when all she wants to do is be used like he's so used to doing himself. But she's also the kind of girl to get itchy feet; "keep her teeth, and run" instead of trying to work things out. That's why he's saying he'll get someone who's less work next time around. She wasn't worth all of the effort just for sex.

    And I do agree that the vulgarity is necessary. By being vulgar himself, he's really shedding light about how much of a monster she was. "You teach me of me."

    That's just how I read it.
