"He's a Man" is a song from Madonna's second sound track album I'm Breathless for the movie Dick Tracy.

Background

In the song Madonna sings as if she was a "hooker stalking the boulevard".

Composition

Madonna's "haunting" vocals continue after the music has faded. Madonna's voice sounds "light" among the arrangement of organs, strings, piano, sax and backing vocals. As she sings the chorus "You're a man with a gun in your hand", her voice deepens and a key change is evident.

Lyrics

All work and no play
Makes Dick a dull dull boy, career gets in the way
Square jaw, ooo, such a handsome face
Why do you have to save the human race?

Life of crime, no it never pays
Clean up the streets and make your secret get-away
All alone, in your room with your radio
No one to hold you, had to let her go

You're a man with a gun in your hand
Waging a war between good and evil can be a bore
If you don't take time, it's not nice
So here's my advice
Take your love on the run (on the run)
Oh God, let me be the one (be the one)
Ah, ah, ah, man with a gun

All boss and no brains
Bullies and thugs, they take up all your time in vain
Can't let go, someone cries and you hear the call
Who's gonna catch you, don't good guys ever fall?

You're a man with a gun in your hand
Waging a war between good and evil can be a bore
If you don't take time, it's not nice
So here's my advice
Take your love on the run (on the run)
Oh God, let me be the one (be the one)
Ah, ah, ah, man with a gun

All alone, in your room with your radio
No one to hold you, I would never let you go

You're a man with a gun in your hand
Waging a war between good and evil can be a bore
If you don't take time, it's not nice
So here's my advice
Take your love on the run (on the run)
Oh God, let me be the one (be the one)
'Cause I can show you some fun
And I don't mean with a gun, no

You are a man with a gun in your hand
Waging a war between good and evil can be a bore
If you don't take time, it's not nice
So here's my advice
Take your love on the run (on the run)
Oh God, let me be the one (be the one)
Ah, ah, ah, man with a gun, take it out of your hand

Waging a war between good and evil can be a bore
If you don't take time, it's not nice
So here's my advice
Take your love on the run (on the run)
Oh God, let me be the one (be the one)
Show you some fun
Gimme that gun
