The Lyrics

Gotta post these things when I write them—not hang on to them and post post. . . .
We can ken—that’s “know”—about the ways of some
By the strength of their sublimation play.
So we just take a look at this guy, and wow!
The lady doth protest too much, I’d say.

Man sublimation
Is making him pray,
Away the gay thing.

Yes, he will tell you ’bout how uneasy
It feels to be with dudes,
Saying things like, “Doug’s arms around Lee
Is a curse and a scourge that is not right.”
What was the guy thinking?
Dog sunglasses buying spree?!*

Man sublimation
Is making him pray,
Away his gay thing

Talk about self-loathing homosexuals
Who violate what they would call “nature’s ways.”
Stop the charade—come out of the closet now;
Admit you’re queer, and no longer in there stay.

Naught wrong with being gay,
But the hypocrite pray,
Can’t turn you from the gay,
Maybe you’re made that way,
Your wife would turn me gay.
