The Lyrics

This is my story. Not a parody, but I've been there and survived it.
Well I found out when I was three
that something definitely was wrong with me
what was it - I never had a clue
Now I don't mind being different
but knowing what it was it was heaven-sent
I was TS - so I picked me the name of Sue

Now you all must think this is kinda a joke
and that I ain't no gal but another bloke
well - that's the way it's been my whole life thru
In the school I was bullied, 'twas a living hell
and if there is something I wanna tell
it is: life ain't easy for a boy named Sue.

I grew up quick, I grew up in a man
teenage was something that I couldn't stand
my voice went down and my beard began to grow;
Inside I felt ill and I was going mad
those teenage things felt really bad
I wanted to get away, but didn't just know how

It was Gatlingburg, I had gun in my hand
the pain inside was more I could stand
I thought I would end it all with one good shot;
then a small voice said inside my head
"It's better to be alive than be just dead
You know you can survive it, so dear Sue, NOT!"

So I finally admitted what was wrong with me
and began to thing what was gonna be
I contacted a shrink and told him how I felt;
He said: "You sound sane and sound and well
you ain't deluded or crazy, I can tell"
It sounded just like I was hit below the belt .

He got me convinced I was sane and sound
and I had my feet well on the ground
it wasn't compulsion nor I was mentally ill;
I got prescription on the HRT;
I grew me boobs and I grew me a bum
my face grew round and my hair grew long
I felt that's the way that I should be.

I came out at job and my mates said "Well,
congrats, Sue, you are brave as hell
you sound you're happier now you've ever been"
I told them "Yes, now I finally live
thank you for all the support that you may give
this is the happiest day that I've ever seen"

So I saved up penny and I saved up dime
and after three years I had the surgery time
it was my time to overcome my past:
Then I came home and I recovered well
at job I could finally everyone tell
I was a woman for good now at last..

I met me a warm and a caring man
a guy who really can understand
my life, who I am and what I have gone through
I can never be a mom, but I can love and care
and sometimes of children I do dreaming dare;
And if I ever had a son, I wish he'd grow up as
Bill or George! Anything but Sue!
Being transsexual is a pain!
TS = transsexual; HRT = hormone replacement therapy. Dutch researchists made an important finding on transsexualism 2000: certain gender-dependent part of brain is inverse on transsexuals.. I hope this shit can treated in the future with gene therapy so nobody needs to undergo sex change any more. Transsexualism can be survived, but it is a fate I don't wish to even to my worst enemy.

If I had been born a Boy, I would've been called Freddie, after Queen frontman Freddie Mercury. My Dad (I wish I was Bob Geldof), is a huge fan of Queen. So much so, that my little brother goes under the alais of "I wish I was Roger Taylor" when he uses this program. He turns 14 in March.
