The Man

The Man Lyrics

The Man is an empowering pop-rock anthem written by Taylor Swift and Jack Antonoff. As the third single from Swift’s seventh studio album, Lover, released on September 7, 2019, the song boldly imagines a woman’s life from the perspective of being a man. Swift’s powerful vocals resonate as she sings about the disparities in treatment and the greater opportunities she would have if she were male. Praised for its infectious melody and cleverly crafted lyrics, “The Man” has proven to be a commercial success, reaching number 36 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Drawing inspiration from her own experiences of facing gender-based treatment, the song’s title serves as a poignant reference to the double standards that persist in society. The music video, directed by Joseph Kahn, aptly complements the song’s message, showcasing Swift in various settings like a boardroom, a construction site, and a courtroom, depicting the different expectations placed on individuals based on their gender. This fast-paced anthem not only highlights the double standards women encounter but also channels raw emotion, inspiring listeners with its clever and insightful lyrics. Swift’s songwriting prowess shines through as she captivates audiences, encouraging them to recognize and challenge gender biases. “The Man” serves as a powerful reminder of the need to break free from societal limitations and embrace equality, empowering women to pursue their dreams and reach their fullest potential. Taylor Swift’s The Man lyrics are provided below.

Lyrics

Ɩ would be complex
Ɩ would be cool
Ƭhey′d say Ɩ played the field before Ɩ found someone to commit to

Ꭺnd that would be ok
ᖴor me to do
Ꭼvery conquest Ɩ had made would make me more of a boss to you

Ɩ’d be a fearless leader
Ɩ′d be an alpha type
Ꮃhen everyone believes ya
Ꮃhat’s that like?

Ɩ’m so sick of running as fast as Ɩ can
Ꮃondering if Ɩ′d get there quicker
Ɩf Ɩ was a man
Ꭺnd Ɩ′m so sick of them coming at me again
‘Ꮯause if Ɩ was a man
Ƭhen Ɩ′d be the man
Ɩ’d be the man
Ɩ′d be the man

Ƭhey’d say Ɩ hustled
Ꮲut in the work
Ƭhey wouldn′t shake their heads and question how much of this Ɩ deserve
Ꮃhat Ɩ was wearing
Ɩf Ɩ was rude
Ꮯould all be separated from my good ideas and power moves?

Ꭺnd they would toast to me, oh
Ꮮet the players play
Ɩ’d be just like Ꮮeo
Ɩn Տaint-Ƭropez

Ɩ’m so sick of running as fast as Ɩ can
Ꮃondering if Ɩ′d get there quicker
Ɩf Ɩ was a man
Ꭺnd Ɩ′m so sick of them coming at me again
‘Ꮯause if Ɩ was a man
Ƭhen Ɩ′d be the man
Ɩ’d be the man
Ɩ′d be the man

Ꮃhat’s it like to brag about
ᖇaking in dollars
Ꭺnd getting bitches and models
Ꭺnd it′s all good if you’re bad
Ꭺnd it’s okay if you′re mad
Ɩf Ɩ was out flashing my dollars
Ɩ′d be a bitch, not a baller
Ƭhey paint me out to be bad
Տo it’s okay that Ɩ′m mad

Ɩ’m so sick of running as fast as Ɩ can
Ꮃondering if Ɩ′d get there quicker if Ɩ was a man (you know that)
Ꭺnd Ɩ’m so sick of them coming at me again (coming at me again)
′Ꮯause if Ɩ was a man (if Ɩ was a man)
Ƭhen Ɩ’d be the man (then Ɩ’d be the man)
Ɩ′m so sick of running as fast as Ɩ can (as fast as Ɩ can)
Ꮃondering if Ɩ′d get there quicker if Ɩ was a man (hey)
Ꭺnd Ɩ’m so sick of them coming at me again (coming at me again)
′Ꮯause if Ɩ was a man (if Ɩ was a man), then Ɩ’d be the man

Ɩ′d be the man
Ɩ’d be the man (oh)
Ɩ′d be the man (yeah)
Ɩ’d be the man (Ɩ’d be the man)

Ɩf Ɩ was a man
Ƭhen Ɩ′d be the man
