              A            E             A      D
      I.  the difference between men and women,
               A        E          F#m          D
          from Adam and Eve 'til today,
                  A          E       F#m        D
          is that men have a serious mission
                A           E         A      A7
          to do things in a practical way.

             riding the range with some dogies
                D                    E
             or driving a truck in L.A.,
                  F#m       B#m
             from here to Japan
                     A      D
             they'll hire a man
                   A           E         A        E
             to do things in a practical way.


          A        E          A         D
     II.  man is a builder of houses
              A             E          F#m     D
          and trolleys that run on the track.
          A        E         F#m        D
          woman is sewing up blouses 
               A            E         A      A7
          with buttons that button in back.
             D                       A        A7
             smiling and wearing her make-up,
               D                      E
             a fine work of art on display.
                 F#m      B#m
             all over the world
                  A            D
             they won't send a girl
                   A           E         A       A7
             to do things in a practical way.


 INSTRUMENTAL:  D - A - A7
                D - E
                F#m - B#m
                A - D
                A - E - A - E


          A             E       A         D
    III.  one time when I was a hippie,
          A            E          F#m     D
          rednecks cut off all my hair.
          A          E         F#m        D
          then I put on ballet slippers
              A                E             A        A7
          and danced while the bullies would glare.
             D                        A          A7
             math majorettes were all lonely.
             D                    E
             nobody asked them to play.
                 F#m           Bm
             the boys made the scores,
                 A              D
             the girls were all whores.
             A             E        A       A7
             that's the traditional way.


              D                        A       A7
 ENDING:  one side of the fence or the other,
          D                              E
          that's where they'd like us to play.
             F#m         Bm
          successful old fools
          A             D
          bless the old rules
               A            E         A
          that stand in the practical way.
