The Man

No Capo

F    2010
G    0232
C    0003
Am   2000

[Verse 1]
           F                   G
I would be complex, I would be cool
             C                                   Am
They'd say I played the field before I found someone to commit to
                  F              G
And that would be okay for me to do
      C                                 Am
Every conquest I had made would make me more of a boss to you

[Pre-Chorus]
F
 I’d be a fearless leader
G
 I'd be an alpha type
C
 When everyone believes ya
Am
 What's that like?
[Chorus] F G I’m so sick of running as fast as I can C Am Wondering if I'd get there quicker if I was a man F G And I'm so sick of them coming at me again C Am 'Cause if I was a man, then I'd be the man F G I'd be the man C Am I'd be the man
[Verse 2] F G They'd say I hustled, put in the work C Am They wouldn’t shake their heads and question how much of this I deserve F G What I was wearing, if I was rude C Am Could all be separated from my good ideas and power moves [Pre-Chorus] F And they would toast to me, oh, G let the players play C Am I’d be just like Leo in Saint Tropez [Chorus] F G I’m so sick of running as fast as I can C Am Wondering if I'd get there quicker if I was a man F G And I'm so sick of them coming at me again C Am 'Cause if I was a man, then I'd be the man F G I'd be the man C Am I'd be the man [Bridge] F What's it like to brag about drinking and dollars G And getting bitches and models? C And it's all good if you're bad Am And it's okay if you're mad F G If I was out flashing my dollars, I'd be a bitch not a baller C They'd paint me out to be bad Am So, it's okay that I'm mad [Chorus] F G I’m so sick of running as fast as I can C Am Wondering if I'd get there quicker if I was a man F G And I'm so sick of them coming at me again C Am 'Cause if I was a man, then I'd be the man F G I’m so sick of running as fast as I can C Am Wondering if I'd get there quicker if I was a man F G And I'm so sick of them coming at me again C Am 'Cause if I was a man, then I'd be the man F G I'd be the man C Am I'd be the man F G I'd be the man C Am I'd be the man

Song Review

Such a simple song with a very powerful message. The lyrics are so true and it’s not a mind-blowing revelation, but it’s like this simple fact is mutual understood by everyone and yet nobody is doing anything to break the stigma. For all the empowering Taylor does to women around the world, she sounds sad in this song. Especially when she says “then I’d be the man”, kinda like a thinking out loud then letting out a large sigh. Hmmm. What do you think?
