The Lyrics

After a nightmarish dream sequence, our hero Glen (a nice young bachelor) has come to grips with his penchant for transvestism (wearing women's clothing, for you who might not know). He is now confronting his fiancee Barbara about his unusual fetish. She is quite understandably confused. The Spirit (as played by a Bela Legosi impressionist) sits in an alcove above the stage, serving as a conscience and commentator of the situation appearing before us.
(The Spirit:) Oooh, here we go again
Same thing the world all over
Oooh, another life begins
And what has Glen/Glenda learned?
Oooh, he's on his bended knee
There's passion in his eyes

(Glen:) Barbara, you're the one for me
But baby, this is my concern
I'm wanting to wear your coat of pink cashmere
Don't you know the way I feel about it?
What I always want to wear
I'm wanting to wear your coat of pink cashmere
I'm hoping I can wear it most every hour
When you're not here
(Barbara:) I'm not sure I understand

(Glen:)I don't need to go out prancing
I—I am the kind of man who'd rather dress up at home
I used to slink about
In your puce peignoir
I was full of joy
Thank God we are the same size!
(Barbara, dismayed:) I feel so alone!...

(Glen:)I wanting to wear your coat of pink cashmere
You've got to know how it feels all over me baby
And I promise it won't tear
I'm wanting to wear your coat of pink cashmere
I'm hoping I can wear it most every hour
When you're not here
(Barbara:) When I'm not here? (She is confused)

(The Spirit:) Oooh, here we go again
Same thing the world all over
Another life begins
(Barbara:)It all depends
(The Spirit:)And what has dear Barbara learned?

(Glen:)I'm wanting to wear your coat
(Barbara:) I'm giving you my coat of pink cashmere
(Glen:)Cashmere, baby, cashmere!...
(Barbara:)You let me know that's the kink about you
(Glen:)You got to know
(Barbara:)How you always want to wear
(Glen:) Oh baby, baby, baby, baby!
(Barbara:)I'm giving you my coat of pink cashmere
(Glen nervously starts humming his favorite Milli Vanilli song to himself :) Girl you know it's true, girl you know it's true
(Barbara, still unsure:)I'm letting you loan it for the hours that I'm not here?

(Glen:)When I peek in your dresser drawer
(Barbara:)Yeah?
(Glen:) Your teddy in blue
(Barbara:) I want to know how you feel about it
(Glen:)It's soft as tissue
(Barbara:)How you always want to wear
(Glen:) And your--and your tutu!
(Barbara:)I'm loaning you my coat of pink cashmere
(Glen:)I wanna wear your bedtime nightie, baby
And your satin pinafore
(Barbra:) You're trying every bit of underwear everywhere?
(Glen:) And plus your satin pinafore
(Barbara:)Now I know about you!

(Glen:)I'll act the girl
I'm still the boy
It gives me joy
All the clothes we'll share together!
Your bras and your gloves
Your skirt and your panties
Try me girl!
(Barbara:)Coat of pink cashmere
(Glen:)Your lacy things, your lacy things, I want them, too!
Won't you share with me?
(Barbara:)Coat of pink cashmere(she begins to remove her cashmere coat)
(Glen:)Reciprocity!
I gotta wear, gotta, I gotta gotta gotta gotta
I gotta wear your little pretty pink coat of cashmere
I think you know now
I like to wear lame [la-may]
And sheer nylon every day
I mostly want your little pretty coat
I wanna try every single zippered, one-piece
Two-piece lacy wear most every day
Take it off your back
Face the fact
That your macho man
Wants to wear your coat of cashmere, baby
(Resolved, she hands him the coat as a pink spotlight shines on Glen and her, on the stagefades to black as the last note of the song playsEND OF ACT 1)
Copyright 2006, Agrimorfee. Now, Ed Wood enthusiasts will quibble that this does't follow the actual action of the movie, "Glen or Glenda." Some artistic license was needed--after all, the OS lasts about 6 minutes. Don't worry, there will be no Act II--that's for some other insane person to do.

My plan is to give you 5s for this protean effort. Haven't seen "G or G," which makes me cross.

DK either OS or movie (spend most of time under water, ya know), but very creative and Five-ish.
If you know the OS "Ferry, Cross the Mersey" (Gerry and the Pacemakers), how about Act II: "Fairy Cross-Dress Jersey"?

DK either either, but this was good

I...I'm still not sure I fully understand your parody, Glen. But it's so good that maybe...we can work it out together.
