The Lyrics

He was a boy
Who sang like a girl
Can I make it any more obvious?
Some said he's straight
Some said he's gay
What more can I say?
His coats were fur
She'd never tell
That secretly she wanted them as well
But teenybopper friends
Stuck up their nose
They had a problem with his cheesy clothes

He was an 80s boy
A man's or a lady's boy?
Nobody knew which he'd prefer
He had a normal face
But he was a mental case
He needed to come back down to earth

Five years from now
She sits at home
Wondering where is "the Purple One"
She turns on TV
Guess who she sees
Midget boy rockin' up MTV
She calls up her friends
They already know
And they've all got tickets to see his show
She tags along
And stands in the crowd
Looks down at the man that she turned down

Prince was an 80s boy
A man or a lady's boy?
He wasn't weird enough for her
He went and changed his name
But people thought it was lame
He needed to come back down to earth

Sorry girl but you missed out
Well tough luck, that boy's broke now
He has had no recent hits
He's about to call it quits
Too bad that she couldn't tell
Michael Jackson's old as well
Many eighties stars are shrill
And they're way over the hill

Jacko's a boy
Who talks like a girl
Can I make it any more obvious?
Haven't you heard
It's a disgrace
How he rearranged his face

Jacko's an 80s boy
A man or a lady's boy?
He'll be backstage in pantyhose
He'll be at the studio
Singing the song he wrote
About the way he changed his nose
