The Lyrics

The governor of CA, who exemplifies the so-called metrosexual, recently referred to Democrats in the state legislature as "girlie-men."
Hirsute Girlie-Man

Grown like a hair shirt, looks like a sheep,
He needs to be sheared by miss Bo Peep.
Doesn't want anyone to see. . .
Shaving 'lectrolytically.

Just then's when the hirsute girlie-man
Got stinging shocks—he's gov.
Then's when the hirsute girlie-man
Got stinging shocks—he's gov.

Hirsute girlie, hirsute girlie, hirsute, burly girlie-man.
Hirsute girlie, hirsute girlie, hirsute, burly girlie-man.
Hirsute girlie, hirsute girlie, hirsute, burly girlie-man.

His furry nates—coarse patch;
Now he's lightened shadows cast
By a forest of hair trees,
Belying his urbanity.

Just then's when the hirsute girlie-man
Got stinging shocks—he's gov.
Then's when the hirsute girlie-man
Got stinging shocks—he's gov.

Hirsute girlie, hirsute girlie, hirsute, burly girlie-man.
Hirsute girlie, hirsute girlie, hirsute, burly girlie-man.
Hirsute girlie, hirsute girlie, hirsute, burly girlie-man.

Now he's a botoxed metro' man
His skin fur's gone—he's gov.

Botoxed metro', botoxed metro', botoxed metro' Austrian man.
Botoxed metro', botoxed metro', botoxed metro' Austrian man.

Hirsute girlie, hirsute girlie, hirsute, burly girlie-man.
Hirsute girlie, hirsute girlie, hirsute, burly girlie-man.

A thickly-matted parody you've laid on "Governor of the (Certain)People" . 5's...Man, lots of good parody titles today and I'm just too "allergied-up" to look at them all. Gotta try and back-track to them tomorrow...'nite all...

Thinking about Donavan singing about the Gov. is cracking me up. Great work John
