A bit of Beefheart – Nowadays a Woman’s Gotta Hit a Man

This is Beefheart’s take on Women’s Rights and equality. Women have been invisible for too long. They need to be given equal rights all round the globe.

Nowadays a Woman’s Gotta Hit a Man

Men you been lookin’ all around for the women
But they always been right there
Nowadays a woman has to haul off and hit a man
T’ make him know she’s there
Other night a woman came up ‘n hit me
Like I wasn’t even there
Yeah, mmm dawned on me, man
That a man been doin’ a woman unfair

Y’ gotta wait for your woman
Let her know you’re there
I knew I had to go out ‘n tell all of the women
That I knew they were there
Now ev’rywhere I go the women all know that I know
Mmm, there ain’t no other place to go but there
I’m talkin’ about women
Yeah, I’m talkin’ about women, man
They don’t have to hit me
To make me know it’s there
None o’ my women have tears in their eyes
You can ask ’em about me I swear
‘n they’ll tell you
That’s one man I swear
Yeah that’s a man
’nuff about tellin’ you this

Mmm, y’ gotta wait for your woman

Let her know you’re there
I knew I had to go out ‘n tell all of the women
That I knew they were there
Now ev’rywhere I go the women all know

That I know

There ain’t no, there ain’t no other place to go but there

I’m talkin’ about women
They don’t have to hit me, man

To make me know it’s there
None o’ my women have tears in their eyes
You can ask ’em about me I swear

I'd like to hear from you...
