Amy Winehouse sings What Is It About Men on this YouTube video. This song was co-written by Amy Winehouse about the break-up of her parents marriage. She was asked by Mojo magazine January 2008 why she would reveal such things in a Pop song.

Winehouse replied: “I don’t know what my mum feels about it, but I felt it was important to write that song. I was 9 or 10 when my dad left. My mum was upset every night, falling apart. I thought she was weak until I realized that my dad was the weak one, ‘cos he couldn’t make something work. My mum was the strong one.” ~ Songfacts

Here are the What Is It About Men song lyrics

Understand once he was a family man
So surely I would never, ever go through it first hand
Emulate all the shit my mother hated
I can’t help but demostrate my Freudian fate
My alibi for taking your guy
History repeats itself, it fails to die
And animal agression is my downfall
I don’t care ’bout what you got I wanted all

It’s bricked up in my head, it’s shoved under my bed
And I question myself again what is it ’bout men
My destructive side has grown a mile wide
And I question myself again what is it ’bout men

I’m nurturing, I just wanna do my thing
And I’ll take the wrong man as naturally as I sing
And I’ll save my tears for uncovering my fears
For behavioural patters that stick over the years

It’s bricked up in my head, it’s shoved under my bed
And I question myself again what is it ’bout men
My destructive side has grown a mile wide
And I question myself again what is it ’bout men
