DWhen a ship is sD7Minking and they lAower the lifebAoats And hGand out the lifejackets, the mDen keep on their coats DThe women and the cD7Mhildren are the oAnes who must go fAirst And the mGen who try to save their skins are cDowards and are cursed

Chorus

GEvery man's a captain, mDen know how to drown AMan the lifeboats if there's room, oGtherwise go dDown 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
