We don't like to go out shopping, we don't care what's on sale
Just wanna sit with a bag full of chips watchin' the NFL
When you come over at half time, you say does this dress fit too tight
We just look you in the eye with a big fat lie 
And say uh uh looks just right

Well that's the truth about men, that's the truth about us
We like to hunt and golf on our days off, scratch and spit and cuss
And no matter what line we hand you when we come dragging in
We ain't wrong, we ain't sorry, and it's probably gonna happen again

We hate watchin' Steel Magnolias, we like Rambo and Die Hard four
Jump up and down like fools when we see the new tools
At the Home Depot store we don't really 
Wanna take you to dinner at some fancy restaurant
The only reason we do is 'cause we know it leads to 
The one thing that we all want

Well, that's the truth about men, that's the truth about guys
We'd rather pick guitars and work on cars
Than work on the problems in our lives
And though we say it to you every now and then
We ain't wrong, we ain't sorry, and it's probably gonna happen again

Well, if you wanna know what we're all thinkin', it's nothing too complex
It's just something cold for drinking and a whole lot of s,e, yes

That's the truth about men, that's the truth about us
We like to hunt and golf and drive around lost
And scratch and spit and a whole lot of other disgusting stuff
And no matter what line we give you when we come crawling in
We ain't wrong, we ain't sorry and it's probably gonna happen again

We ain't wrong, We ain't sorry, and it's probably gonna happen 
Sure it's gonna happen, you know it's gonna happen again
And that's the truth about men
