The Lyrics

This coming Monday, May 17th, barring any last-minute judicial stays, my home state of Massachusetts will become the only state in America to issue marriage licenses to gay and lesbian couples. Our Governor, Mitt Romney, has been fighting this every step of the way. "Jumping the broom" is an old-fashioned folk-expression for getting married.
We're so sorry
Gov'nor Romney
We're so sorry if we've caused you any pain

We're so sorry
Gov'nor Romney
But the justices decided
It's okay if you are gay

We're so sorry, but it's almost Seventeenth, of May
We're so sorry
Gov'nor Romney
But if gay marriage should happen, you can still say you are straight

(telephone ringing...ringing...ringing...answered: )

We're so sorry
Gov'nor Romney
But we cannot get a court to give a stay

We're so sorry
Gov'nor Romney
But your perfect hair astounds the world more than we dare to say

(instrumental)

Hands of single gender (gender)
Wedding bells ring loud!
Hands of single gender (gender)
Monday morning crowd!

(instrumental)

Governor Romney notified me
To find a legal way so that gays could not mar-ry
I had another glance, at his flimsy legal chance, and I thought I'd cry
(I thought I'd cry!)
(He ordered us to try it, but the judges said good-bye!)

Hands of single gender (gender)
Time to jump the broom!
Hands of single gender (gender)
Time to kiss the groom!

(instrumental)

Gov'nor Romney, perfect hair guy, don't be shy (don't be shy)
You are straight and that is why
You would not marry a guy

Gov'nor Romney, perfect hair guy, be a friend (be a friend)
The whole world's not gonna end
Live and let live, be a friend!

(instrumental)

Hands of single gender (gender)
Gay men say "I do" !
Hands of single gender (gender)
Lesbians do too!

Good one, Johnny! 5's

Thanks, Adagio! I tried to steer an even-handed course with this parody . . . I wrote this parody as a social observation, not as a political or religious editorial. I hope all my readers, both conservative and liberal, both gay and straight, will take it for what it is - just a topical play on the original song's words intended as a good-humored observation of this interesting social phenomena by a resident of Massachusetts - me!

This one's bugging me, because I'm sure I've got the original back home (on vinyl, more than likely) but I can't quite put my finger on it. Like the subject matter... will be back

Johnny D! With this pro-gay, anti-mormon, hair-ridiculing, liberal nod to the gay agenda I have NO CHOICE but to give you all fives! :D You da man, JD!

Johnny, I just saw your comment right after mine. LOL...need a fence (j/k). Your wise not to rile feathers. :D You are more of a joker with innappropriate (?) comments anyway. Reminds me, there was some comment of yours that was deleted. What song was it on?

Johnny...you're commentary verse was so incindiary that it made the messageboard go kablooey.
Johnny D - May 16, 2004 - Report this comment
Hi Adagio - heh heh heh, well, but, how could it have... it was a private message from me to you!

What's the difference between the current Governor of Massachusetts and the last one? The current one's not Swift. Then again, he's doing as good a job as his daddy did in Michigan in the Sixties -- just look at how he fixed up Detroit! So, while the gays are coming to Massachusetts to jump the broom, Mitt's jumping the shark!
Johnny D - May 16, 2004 - Report this comment
Hey Michael - first of all, thanks for your comment and vote, and second, why dontcha come to Massachusetts and pester the Mittmeister like one of our local investigative reporters likes to do - see if you can disturb Mitt's perfect hair! ;-D
