Men will be men and they'll call me the governor
I'll walk through the bar and I'll buy the next round
Because this is my ship and I say it's my destiny
And we'll all go up and go down, we go down, go down

Through the town and back up through the avenues
And into the places where people don't stay
Go visit the king and then leave through the window
Go hang with the gang and get lost in the fray

Andy's a saint or a savage, I forget
Depends on the day and if he's eaten yet
He's something to see when he's first out of bed
Not that I'd know, I've just heard it said

Said that men will be men and they'll call me the governor
I'll walk through the bar and I'll buy the next round
Because this is my ship and I say it's my destiny
And we'll all go up and go down, we go down, go down

Through the town and back up through the avenues
And into the places where people don't stay
Go visit the king and then leave through the window
Go hang with the gang and get lost in the fray

Spider's the guy to handle the gun
He'd show me how, but I don't want one
He's oh-so polite for a second-story man
And he's changed his spots as much as anyone can

We know men will be men and they'll call me the governor
I'll walk through the bar and I'll buy the next round
Because this my ship and I say it's my destiny
And we'll all go up and go down, we go down, go down

Through the town and back up through the avenues
And into the places where people don't stay
Go visit the king and then leave through the window
Go hang with the gang and get lost in the fray

Come and sit with the whores and admire the view
Drink down these beers, I think you've had a few
Yes and don't look at me, I'm not selling today
Over the crowd hear the bartender say

Say that men will be men and they'll call me the governor
I'll walk through the bar and I'll buy the next round
Because this is my ship and I say it's my destiny
And we'll all go up and go down, we go down, go down

Through the town and back up through the avenues
And into the places where people don't stay
Go visit the king and then leave through the window
Go hang with the gang and get lost in the fray

Men will be men and they'll call me the governor
I'll walk through the bar and I'll buy the next round
Because this is my ship and I say it's my destiny
And we'll all go up and go down, we go down, go down...

(1990-91)
