Song Lyrics - The Double Standard

Source


When you reach for her
She has to be your fantasy
A porn star in bed
But a lady for your family

Men don’t have to think
They can just act like fools
Women live life under cover
Having to remember all the rules

Boys will be boys
That’s what they say
Being a man is so easy
Try being a woman for a day

We jump out of bed
No need to shave
They have to clean up
As if they woke up that way

Boys will be boys
That’s what they say
Being a man is so easy
Try being a woman for a day

A one night stand
And not another thought
But not for a woman
She’d rather die than be caught

There’ s never been a man
Whose friend didn’t forgive
But for a woman
Their own kind tell them how to live

Boys will be boys
That’s what they say
Being a man is so easy
Try being a woman for a day

@Hyphenbird - I thought it was a classic "boys will be boys" picture...

The implication of this article seems to suggest that the President is observing the woman bottom. However, this is only perceptions, is he? or is he observing her moves it they are dancing or is she barefoot. A clip such as this can not be trusted to give the full picture.

@platinumOwl4 - Maybe I shouldn't have put the picture up. I wasn't trying to make a political statement. I thought it was a funny picture that sort of made Obama look like all the rest of the guys eying a woman... Like I said earlier, it was just an image of "boys will be boys..."

@acaetnna - I guess I'm pretty random at times but I'm glad you like the way I put things. Thank you for being supportive.

@Teddleonmr - Thanks man. It appears Obama is looking while the other man is chuckling at Obama. It may not be real at all but I thought it was a good photo. I appreciate your kind words.

You have a way with words. You're right about the double standard. A little respect would be nice! At lest his wife wasn't there to see it. Boys will be boys is so old! When do they grow into respecting men, especially if they have daughters to witness?

@poetenvy - Thank you for your kind words. "When do they grow into respecting men?" What a question... they go from boys will be boys to "dirty old men." I hope I can be the man I want to be but it's not that easy for some reason...

I often hear, the statement, "boys will be boys" boys remain boys because women allow it. All women have to do is say "not here pal if you are looking for a playmate look elsewhere"

@platinumOwl4 - Thanks for commenting. That's probably true that women enable men but I'm not going to blame them for that. The men should want to mature and grow as people. We should want to evolve. Sadly that doesn't happen as often as it should....
