D Dmaj7 A A*When a ship is sinking and they lower the lifeboats
G DAnd hand out the lifejackets, the men keep on their coats
D Dmaj7 A A*The women and the children are the ones who must go first
G DAnd the men who try to save their skins are cowards and are cursed
G DEvery man's a captain, men know how to drown
A G DMan the lifeboats if there's room, otherwise go down
And it's the same when there's a war on; it's the men who go to fight Women and children are civilians, when they're killed it's not right Men kill men in uniform; it's the way war goes When they run they're cowards, when they stay they are heroes Chorus: Every man's a general, men go off to war The battlefield's a man's world; cannon fodder's what they're for It's the men who have the power; it's the men who have the might And the world's a place of horror; because each man think he's right A man's home is his castle, so the family let him in But what's important in that kingdom, is the women and children Chorus: A husband and a father, every man's a king But he's really just a drone, gathers no honey has no sting Chorus: Have pity on the general, the king and the captain They know they're expendable, after all they're men
