New League of Gentlemen

What does it mean to be a man today?
Is it time to redefine and emancipate?
Who decides gender norms we conform to?
Do we say what we feel or what we ought to? 
Let me ask you: is crying still a no-go?
Can we say "I love you man" and drop "no homo"?
Are we okay to admit when we're afraid?
Do we speak up when our values are betrayed?
Are we brave enough to show vulnerability?
Strong enough to tap into our sensitivity?
Self secure enough to champion women?
Are there enough of us to challenge the system?
Or is our fear of judgement by fellow men
Still causing us to reject the feminine?
We have a choice to defect or let 'em win
It's time we formed a new league of gentlemen

Calling all men, principled and genuine
Applications open for the New League of Gentlemen
Send 'em in if you agree with the sentiment:
The time is ripe for a New League of Gentlemen
From penthouse to tenement
Everybody's welcome in the New League of Gentlemen
Yeah. The New League of Gentlemen
The New League of Gentlemen

Being a man is first and foremost being a good human
That means being responsible, being kind, being compassionate
And what we wanna do is create a space in which 
Young men of color and young men generally
Don't have to feel as if, for me to be respected
I've got to act a certain way
Let's face it: a lot of hiphop and rap music is built around 
Me showing how I got more money than you
I can disrespect you and you can't do nothing about it
I'm gonna talk about you
Ironically that actually shows the vulnerability that you feel
If you were really confident about your financial situation
You probably are not gonna be wearing an eight pound chain around your neck
If you are very confident about your sexuality
You don't have to have eight women around you twerkin'

Calling all men, principled and genuine
Applications open for the New League of Gentlemen
Send 'em in if you agree with the sentiment:
The time is ripe for a New League of Gentlemen
From penthouse to tenement
Everybody's welcome in the New League of Gentlemen
Yeah. The New League of Gentlemen
The New League of Gentlemen
