The Lyrics

The OS was written by Judy Hart Angelo and Gary Portnoy, and performed by Portnoy

Saying your gay in the world today
Is everything it’s not
Sharing a drink with all the fairies
Just might hit the spot
Wouldn’t you like to slip away?

All those pairs who have no health care
Their back’s against the wall
And poor little Larry
Tapped his wingtips by the stall
When he was flying to Idaho

Sometimes you want to go
Where everybody knows you’re gay
And they’ll always have you stay
You want to be where you are free,
Where struggles are much the same
You want to be where everybody knows you’re gay

Newspaper said, Elton John has wed
His music hurt no child
But your priest escaped from justice
A wanted pedophile
And you used to be a choirboy

Be glad there’s one place to enjoy
Where everybody knows you’re gay
And they never judge or blame
You want to go where people know,
Lifestyles aren’t all the same
You want to go where everybody knows you’re gay

Where everybody knows your gay,
And they’ll always have you stay
Where everybody knows your gay,
And they’ll always have you stay…
