Sleater Kinney — Ballad Of A Ladyman lyrics

Eye cream and thigh cream
How 'bout a get high cream
Nothing I do smoothes out the
Feelings of being used
The ballad of a ladyman

Freak that I am, live in Japan
"Let's rock with the tough girls
In this part of the world
Take a photograph
Portrait of a ladyman

Are we holding onto our
Pride a bit too long
Are we breaking you apart
Are we breaking our guitars

Now they say I've gone too far
With the image I've got
They know I'd make a mint
With new plastic skin
And a hit on the radio
Oh, temptations of a ladyman

I could be demure like girls who are
Soft for boys who are
Fearful of getting an earful
But I gotta rock
I'd rather be a ladyman

How many times will you decide
How many times will you define
How much control should we
Give up of our lives

{You sit at home with an alibi
In case they call you and ask you
Why all you do is go "ooh ahh ooh You're out of control but saying
"Ooh ahh ooh"}
