The Lyrics

My first collaboration with Bo Reynolds. He proposed the title; I wrote the lyrics; he did everything else. Listen for it on the syndicated Bo Reynolds Show.
What's a guy gotta do to be a girl in this town?
Don't wanna be a Joe, so I'm Jolene bound
My last hope for a wedding is in a wedding gown
What's a guy gotta do to be a girl in this town?

Well ask anybody and you're sure to conclude
If you're male nobody buys you drinks or food
If you wanna get a job at the Hooters well yer screwed
So I don't understand why I gotta be a dude!

What's a guy gotta do to be a girl in this town?
I said that to my ex, well she came unwound
But she's told me to change so I'll make the change profound
What's a guy gotta do to be a girl in this town?

Cruise all around the local barn dance
Maybe score some booze and maybe score romance
But I can't get no one there to give the guys like me a chance
Seems the only people scorin' are the people with implants!

What's a guy gotta do to be a girl in this town?
Adjust the furniture, move some stuff around
Add some rooms to the upstairs and shut the cellar down
What's a guy gotta do to be a girl in this town?

Had the doctor tell me, boy I got the trick
When I'm through with you, you'll be a bona-fide chick
A little nip and tuck and we will git-'er-done quick
But you shoulda seen me run - he tried to cut off my...beard

What's a guy gotta do to be a girl in this town?
Some people say I'm nuts 'cause I hang around
But I'll stick with my guy problems now that I have found
What a guy's gotta do to be a girl in this town!

What a guy's gotta do to be a girl in this town

I had to give it off to you Spaff, your one of the only parody writers who actually do country, well you and me. The cowboys hat's off to you pardner, I reckon. Plus I had an idea about a sex change as well, a parody of Alan Jackson's Back When, called Back When (Before The Sex Change)... so, yep...

Thanx, scholar rhodes & Ricksy & McFist & Matthias (I'll look for yours) & s2art mcRthR & M of MA & Local Celebrity & whoever the two mystery voters were. Additional warm-fuzzy thanx to those of you who checked this out without even knowing the original. That's above and beyond the call. I hope to have a copy of the recording to post soon.

(Already rated awhile back) You know, I've giving this a lot of thought and I just can't imagine what possible incentive you'd have to want to be a girl, Spaff! :D
