The Lyrics

The "Folsom Street Fair" is an annual event in San Francisco... it's kind of a fetish party, things you never knew existed (and didn't want to!). This has been through a few revisions, as you can imagine, to be "cleaned up," so I hope this one makes it through...
Are you goin' to Folsom Street Fair?
Heels, spiked collars, and leather hydes,
If it's your first time, you might get a scare,
Any type of fetish you'll find.

Everyone putting their difference aside,
Straights and gays, transgendered and dykes,
Don their clothes and wear them with pride.
Bond over the weird stuff they like.

Maybe you'll find me a tight leather shirt,
Butt-less pants with chains down the side,
Have some drinks, but do stay alert,
Beware, you'll see a few men's behinds.

Are you going to Folsom Street Fair,
Get some food, see playthings and bikes,
Don't use the port-o-john they provide,
You might find inside its a fright.

Sounds like a Key West Fantasy Fest, on Halloween! Everyone not dressed like Jimmy Buffet's Magaritaville, is dressed as you described. I've seen a few weird costumes at biker events too!

Funny, Leah. Come to think of it, guess they would make an occasion out of it. :D 5's

Thanks Adagio! I'm just tickled that I can still say "butt-less pants!"

Great job, LeLo. Now parody "Canticle" and get RAD & MAD to sing the two together. I've never been to the FSF but would love to. But -(Diiiva & Wild - you still listening?) I have been to Fantasy Fest two years in a row and looooove it. Surprisingly, they don't throw parties like that in Utah.

Leah, Really good! Glad I looked in on this before heading out. Tomorrow is my (not so) grand exit here. Today was actually fun, I really didn't do squat (the calls are pretty light now) but socialize and reminisce (did I spell that right?? I don't know and it's too late to look it up). I was in a very upbeat frame of mind and I think that made the other folks a lot more comfortable about saying good-bye. Anyway, as far as I know the Company is only firing me, not killing me, so I plan to stop by a couple times before the rest of the group is "Adios'd" and many have requested I keep them up on my various writings, such as they are. And they all can link here to "Amiright" if they want to check out my parodies. Well, NOW I'm outta here for the evening (or morning). Will look at the site a little bit tomorrow but have stuff going on elsewhere so I have to really try and not dawdle. Later.

Leah, hmmm...someone stuck you with "1's" here. Well, at least they commented. I thought it was good back at the end of December & still do...so I'll register a new vote here: 5-5-5...
