The Real Macaw Tracklist. 1. Just Like a Man Lyrics. 2. You Can't Take Love for Granted Lyrics.

The Real Macaw, while hardly perfect, is a significant improvement; the musicians, who include former Rumour guitarist Brinsley Schwarz and Squeeze drummer Gilson Lavis, sound tight and snappy throughout, and if the album rarely rocks as hard as you might hope for from Parker, the accelerated tempos of "Just Like a Man" and "Last Couple on the Dance Floor" indicate the band could. kick it out when the situation demanded, and the quieter songs still display a potent if low-key energy.
