Talkin' 'bout perceptions. So easy to be a musician. Ask anyone...
Why is it that whenever a song is sung in First Person, and it APPEARS it is the opinion of the singer or writer, there is a lot of controversy? This one and 'Short People' by Randy Newman got a lot of flack for its content. Both are about prejudice as seen from the bigot's view. -

He says it direct, "Forgit all that macho s*** and learn how to play guitar". He could not have written a more basic rock 'n' roll song than this one. Mellencamp even injects a bit of the 'ole garage band into the piece. I never git tired of listening to this one. Lotsa fun. -

Skewered and served up with relish. -
