Free, Male, and Twenty-One

  We're free
  We're male
  We're twenty-one

  Free, male, and twenty-one
  Free, male, and twenty-one
  It's not enough to be twenty-one and free
  It's not the same as male and twenty-one

  Free, male, and twenty-one
  This is such a fine distinction
  The career that we've begun
  I just made twenty-one
  I'm old enough to run
  For congressman or clerk of the public works
  Or dogcatcher or something just as dumb
  If I should choose to run

  I make no exaggeration
  Just a statement of the facts
  Now I'm second generation
  And I am manly to the max
  And no one can decree
  Just who I have to be
  The choice is up to me
  And if I could be anything, I'd be

  Male and twenty-one
  It's nice to be a man
  I use it all I can

  I never had a choice for a higher voice
  But I have to say I'm glad to be a man
  Since this is what I am
  Sigmund Freud may have a crisis
  With his own identity
  But there's nothing wrong with me
  Because I enjoy being a boy
  And all that it will say upon my resume'

  Free, male, and twenty-one
  Free, male, and twenty-one
  Free, male, and twenty-one
  Free, male, and twenty-one

  If I could change
  Change anything, everything
  Everything in the world
  Then I would make
  Half of the world
  Free, male, and twenty-one
  Free, male, and twenty-one
  Free, male, and twenty-one

  And I don't believe in heaven
  What a let down it would be
  And I hope there's not a hell
  But there must be a God 'cause He made me
  Free, male, and twenty-one
  There's got to be a God 'cause He made me
  Male and twenty-one
  Free, male, and twenty-one
