Sleater-Kinney The 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 on to our pride a bit too long

Are we breaking on guitars

Are we breaking you apart

They say I’ve gone too far

with the image I’ve got and

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

Are we holding on to our pride a bit too long

Are we breaking on guitars

Are we breaking you apart

How many times will you decide

how many lives will you define

how much control should we give up of our lives

(You sit at home with an alibi

in case they call and ask you

why all you do is go

“ooh ahh ohh”

you’re out of control but saying

“ooh ahh ooh”)

Are we holding on to our pride a bit too long

Are we breaking on guitars

Are we breaking you apart

How many times will you decide

how many lives will you define

how much control should we give up of our lives

(You sit at home with an alibi

in case they call and ask you

why all you do is go

“ooh ahh ohh”

you’re out of control but saying

“ooh ahh ooh”)
