Each time you think you've found the one, then just when you're feelin glad
You find out that he sometimes gets mad
And worst of all he sometimes gets sad
And it seems that every man you've had could only be a passin fad

Your papa was the only one that could always make you smile
He never seemed to have no cares, He could take you anywhere
He would promise you the moon -- then have it delivered to your room

But now you can't seem to find a real man
You can't seem to find a real man -- you can't seem to find a real man
You can't seem to find one and there's no place you can buy one
And it's something you just can't understand --
And a man... is somethin that you just can't find
Oh well you've left so many losers behind --
Well it always turns out that he ain't all he pretended to be
And it always seems that the only good ones
Wind up telling you that it was just for fun
And you just hate to complain and whine, but man is just a big fat lie

Each time you think you've found the one
Then just when you're at your peak
He goes on a losin streak he loses all his mystique
Then he wants your sympathy and suddenly he just seems s-s-so weak

And now you can't seem to find a real man
You can't seem to find a real man -- you can't seem to find a real man
You can't seem to find one man on whom you can rely
And understandin is one thing you can't stand --
And a man... is something you been seekin so long
It always starts out like Fay Wray and King Kong --
And then you find out that he ain't so strong
Oh how could you have been so wrong
How could you ever have gotten along when he deceived you
Now it grieves you to say goodbye,
But you were so kind... not to tell him why ---
Cause you couldn't seem to find a real man
A real man a real man, like Zeus, Prince Charmin, a real man, a real man
A real man, a real man, like Genghis Khan, uh- Attila the Hun, Don Juan
Rasputin. A real man
