The Lyrics

Same-gender marriage is legal in several states, banned in most, and not recognized in some when performed in other states. Since the LGBT tide is progressing, it's time to write some songs about this alternative "institution." I offer one here, based on the "straight" version about love-at-first-sight at TOS.
I walked down the street like a good guy should;
He followed me down the street like I knew he would,
Because a gay is a gay wherever he may be;
So listen while I tell you what this fellow did to me.

I walked to my house like a good guy should;
He followed me to my house like I knew he would,
Because a gay is a gay wherever he may be;
So listen while I tell you what this fellow did to me.

I never saw this guy before, so nothing could be sillier.
At closer range, his face was strange, but his manner was familar.

So I walked up the stairs like a good guy should;
He followed me up the stairs like I knew he would,
Because a gay is a gay wherever he may be;
So listen while I tell you what this fellow did to me.

I walked to my door like a good guy should;
He stopped at my door like I knew he would,
Because a gay is a gay wherever he may be;
So listen while I tell you what this fellow did to me.

He asked me for a good-night kiss;
I said, "It's still good-day."
I would have told him more, except
His lips got in the way.

So I asked Parent One like a good child should,
Who asked Parent Two like I knew One would,
And they all agreed on the married life for me.
That gay is my guy wherever he may be.

So I walked down the aisle like A-Partner should.
He promised me "until death" like B-Partner should,
Because a gay and a gay wherever can mar-ry.
So now you've heard the story of what someone did to me.

[Musical interlude -- Mendelssohn's Wedding March intro]

That's what he did to me!
I changed far fewer words than I normally do, e.g., in my other parody of this song at ~60s/dorisday3.shtml.

Here is a revised sixth stanza (lines 19-22) that I had left unchanged:

He asked me for a good night's bliss;
I said, "Which thrills would pay?"
I would have sold him more, except
His ship's brought in to stay.

Also change the last "wherever" to "forever" to echo "until death" above it.
