How hard is being a man

believe it or not people

Show strong shoulders

if you have or do not have

Strong muscles

if you walk down the street

The world is so beautiful

As to shave

Remove your hair is change for the body

As life is

Just that people are so scratchy like the beard

when they criticize

 

 

 

 

How hard is being a man

They always want to see you manly

without really knowing what it means to be

People wants to see you in their way

But people do not know what is best for your skin

best for your beard the best for your body

They talk and talk

Claiming to say it's a real man

They talk and talk

but they will never know what the best soap

For my skin of soul

They talk and talk

But they will never know

what is the form that a real man can shave

Because they will never know

how my life is shaved

Because they will never know how life is for happiness shaved

Because they will never know

what is in my place to shave.
