Song Description

My idea of how my Father's generation would sum up all of the "modern" self-analyzing, soul searching self help plans that today's man is "strongly encouraged" to adhere to.

Story Behind the Song

After I wrote "This One's For Mama" I was informed {by Mama} that my Dad should have a song about him. Mama said; I did.

Lyrics

WHAT REAL MEN DO
(Written by: Michael H. Fuller ? February 11th, 2005)

I HAD A WEEKDAY OFF / WITH NOTHIN? TO DO
SO I WATCHED DOCTOR PHIL / AND OPRAH TOO

AND YOU JUST WOULDN?T BELIEVE / WHAT THEY WAS TALKIN? ABOUT
HELL, I SHOULDA WATCHED LIFETIME / I?D A BEEN BETTER OFF

NOW, IT SEEMS THAT MEN / IN THE NEW MILLENIUM
JUST CAN?T FIGURE OUT / HOW TO GET THINGS DONE

YEAH, THERE?S TOO MUCH STRESS / FOR MEN TO COPE THESE DAYS
I GUESS WE NEED NEW RULES / FOR PROPER MANLY WAYS

SO THEY SPENT TWO HOURS A TALKIN? ABOUT
HOW TO ?FIND YOUR INNER PEACE? AND SORT THINGS OUT
YEAH THEY WAS SETTIN? US STRAIGHT
ON WHAT ?REAL MEN? DO

BUT IT GOT ME TO THINKIN? / IN THIS NEW DAY AND AGE
MEN COULD SAVE A LOT OF MONEY / ON THE SELF HELP CRAZE

JUST GO TALK TO MY DADDY / HE?LL SHOW YOU THE WAY
HE LEARNED HOW TO BE A MAN / IN THE ?GOOD OLD DAYS?

WELL, MY DADDY WORKED TOO MUCH ACCORDIN? TO HIM
AND HE DRANK TOO MUCH ACCORDIN? TO THEM
BUT HE NEVER NEEDED A SHRINK FOR EITHER ONE

AND HE?D SHARE WHAT?S HIS IF YOU WERE IN BAD SHAPE
OR HE?D WHIP YOUR ASS IF YOU SULLIED HIS NAME
HE NEVER ?CALLED THE AUTHORITIES? - TO DEFEND HIS HONOR

HE?S AMERICAN MADE - TRIED AND TRUE
A PROUD VETERAN FROM WORLD WAR II
HE?S A LIVIN? EXAMPLE
OF WHAT REAL MEN DO

NO, YOU DON?T GET IT FROM A BOOK OR A TV SHOW
IT AIN?T SOMETHIN? YOU LEARN IT?S SOMETHIN? YOU KNOW
FROM HOW YOU WAS RAISED ?
AND THE MISTAKES YOU?VE MADE

AND IF YOU STILL AIN?T GETTING? WHAT I?M TALKIN? ABOUT
THERE AIN?T NO SUCH THING AS AN EASY WAY OUT
JUST SAY WHAT YOU DO ? AND DO WHAT YOU SAY

NO, THEY CAN?T POUR IT IN YOUR HEAD YOU CAN?T GRAB IT IN YOUR PANTS
GET ?ER DONE AND QUIT WHININ? THAT?S BEIN? A MAN
THAT?S WHAT MY DADDY?D TELL ?EM

THAT?S WHAT REAL MEN DO ? THAT?S WHAT REAL MEN DO ?
THAT?S WHAT REAL MEN DO ? THAT?S WHAT MY DADDY?D DO
