The Lyrics

The gardenstate is the gay american
They voted and the polls came in and he won the town
Oh wow
Said garden state is a wonderful thing
Let's have some fun
Décor there and there
Took the chairs took the pillows
Changed the rug, of which he loved
Heaven knows it's a fabulous thing but

He was the gay American
Gay American, gay American, he was the gay American
He knew
He was a gay American

All the way he went with her
Married her then and children flowed
He was straight for how many years
Changed just like that But

He was the gay American
Gay American, gay American, he was the gay American
He knew
He was a gay American

Do you remember, his achievements
Do you remember, his terms.
What did you learn

Changed the corridor
Changed the bathroom
The dogs got a sweater and the cats have boots
The wife's got K-mart but that guy got's a Versace
Kids got a dad but the dad ain't right
( I herd the speech today oh boy)
he cant go on living a lie
There is a man who means more
Like it more than woman when I go to the store
Is'ent there a law in Massachusetts
Says that a dude can married a guy
AMC's are my favorite places

'cas that movie Notebook just made me break down and cry

All Right
I am the gay American
Gay American, gay American, he was the gay American
Oh yeah
I am a gay American

Excusez-moi, monsieur? I'm sorry, but I'm really not following the story, due to some grammatical errors. Overall, though, pretty good. Not funny in particular, but well-illustrated portrait of "homosexual panic", for lack of a better way of describing it.

A great many lines that don't mean much to people living outside the Garden State methinks. 545. Could you explicate some of this?
