The Lyrics

fixed the original up a bit, still weird as hell though
i will tell you 'bout my garden gnome
cross dresses, says his name is joan
his gnome wife gets sick at the sight
of g-string on the waist of 'joan', as he rushes for the light
he says it makes him feel so alive
dancin round the room doing the foxtrot and the jive
his wife says she wanted a divorce
and ran off with the neighbours horse
she's got 15 ways
to feed that horse some hay
'joan' thought his panties would console him
but now he feels so lonely
he eats up all his breakfast and
he drinks the day away

he wants to sing-song dance
wants to find romance
but he won't let go
oh no no no no no

coz he plays dress ups
he plays dress ups
he plays dress ups
he plays dress ups dress ups dress ups

coz he plays dress ups
he plays dress ups
he plays dress ups
he plays dress ups dress ups dress ups

silently he opens her drawer
wifey's little knickers are coming out for more
secretly he wears them, during the midday show
his back is arched, looks like a tart, now he is ready to go

when he's at the party
he finds a bloke called dave
tells of the hummers he will give him
and the money he will save

'joan' rubs on some skin lotion
for the trip across the ocean to
their new flat in surfer's paradise
with the ocean view

where he can sing-song dance
he has found romance
he can not let go
oh no no no no no

and he can play dress ups
he can play dress ups
he can play dress ups
he can play dress ups dress ups dress ups

I know this song! Dunno about having fixed it, though, the original is classic. Top marks nonetheless, and I suggest you are lucky that the meaning hidden within the verse near the end (the party verse) isn't more widely understood! Thought perhaps you could have done more work with changing the Surfer's Paradise verse a bit more also...?
