Men must not cry

The chapel was full, like never before.
They crammed inside and looked at the floor.
Of course you know the reason why,
Because in our culture, men must not cry.

Oh, they can laugh and joke and swear
And drink and fight and dye their hair
And though I know no reason why,
It seems it's wrong for men to cry.
