"Trust in Invagination"

Parody Written by:

John A. Barry

The Lyrics

He looks in the mirror, watches "her" as he passes by.
He says to himself, "I'm unlucky I'm a guy.
To be a girl, a her, is a dream come true."
There is a doctor in New York who'll make him new.

"I will trust in invagination, tunnel in,
Cuttin' a way in me
I will trust in invagination.
Cunnin's the way for me."

He'd like to be married and bear a family,
But he is still a male, chromosomally.
Yes, he's a fellow who's just had a cracked mined
A little nip and tuck to make labies. No Greek'that's all behind.

He's belle, yeah!

"I did trust in invagination, tunnel in,
Cuttin' a way in me
I did trust in invagination.
Cunnin's the way for me."

At night she goes out to play'
Looks good, wearing pleats.
She must settle on another name. Will it be
Jo, Meryl, Shirley, Di?

Her ectoplasm's "he"--
"Oh, how they did mold me"--
Sex chasm's gender-bendery.
Miss Congeniality missed, congenitally, "she."
