Steel Strings Lyrics - Marshall Crenshaw

Well, all those nights they hit rock bottom 

The songs they sang, well, we forgot 'em 

You could hear them play with shaky hands 

Guitars strung up with rubber bands 

 

Singing, do you want a man of steel 

Or do you want a man that's real? 

They used to play in the courts of kings 

Now they're only made of steel when they're on steel strings 

 

They used to be on every schoolgirl's wall 

And they never dropped the beat at all 

They could make it soar, they could make it hot 

Once they got started they could never stop 

 

Singing, do you want a man of steel 

Or do you want a man that's real? 

Some of them hide when the doorbell rings 

They're only made of steel when they're on steel strings 

 

Said, playing the man on steel strings 

Playing the man on steel strings 

Playing the man on steel strings 

Playing the man on steel strings 

 

You expecting maybe Superman? 

The best they do is the best they can 

Now the manager's doing time in jail 

The pink Cadillac is up for sale 

 

And they're singing, do you want a man of steel 

Or do you want a man that's real? 

They try their hands at a thousand things 

They're only made of steel when they're on steel strings 

 

Yeah, they're playing the man on steel strings 

Playing the man on steel strings 

Playing the man on steel strings 

Just playing the man on steel strings 

 

Playing the man on steel strings 

Playing the man on steel strings 

Playing the man on steel strings 

Playing the man on steel strings
