Idles – Samaritans Lyrics

Samaritans by Idles

Man up
Sit down
Chin up
Pipe down
Socks up
Don’t cry
Drink up
Just lie
Grow some balls, he said
Grow some balls
Man up
Sit down
Chin up
Pipe down
Socks up
Don’t cry
Drink up
Don’t whine
Grow some balls, he said
Grow some balls

The mask
Of masculinity
Is a mask
A mask that’s wearing me
The mask, the mask, the mask

I’m a real boy
Boy, and I cry
I like myself
And I want to try
This is why you never see your father cry
This is why you never see your father cry
This is why you never see your father

Man up
Sit down
Chin up
Pipe down
Socks up
Don’t cry
Drink up
Just lie
Grow some balls, he said
Grow some balls
Man up
Sit down
Chin up
Pipe down
Socks up
Don’t cry
Drink up
Don’t whine
Grow some balls, he said
Grow some balls

The mask
Of masculinity
Is a mask
A mask that’s wearing me
The mask, the mask, the mask

I’m a real boy
Boy and I cry
I love myself
And I want to try
This is why you never see your father cry
This is why you never see your father cry
This is why you never see your father

I kissed a boy and I liked it
Man up
Sit down
Chin up
Pipe down
Socks up
Don’t cry
Drink up
Don’t whine
This is why
This is why
This is why
This is why
This is why
This is why
