"Ballet Poof"

The Lyrics

We always asked - he didn't tell
But everybody knew
He came as stag - we called him fag
His mother cried, it's true
He dressed in lace - ate flambeed krill
He bought a ticket to AIDS

We laughed about the clothes he worn
They were always in fad
And what a sight he made for scorn
When he was bitchy and mad

Beyond our ken - lived intense
He was queer as the French
When he took onto the stage
He found his calling there
Just like his ticket to AIDS

He was a ballet poof - he'd strut around in miniskirt
No man, a ballet poof - except the days his rectum hurt

So many suckers - that he let choke
Too many dates - with the queer eye folks

Danced at home to Liberace
And to Y.M.C.A
Enjoyed to tie guys down
Got the sickness from a lover
Spread it to a bunch of friends
They got his ticket to AIDS

He was a ballet poof - he'd strut around for all to see
No man, a ballet poof - with destination H-I-V
Ballet poof - We called him the frog-cousine man
No man, a ballet poof - he used that spray-on-tan

He thought that women sucked
He went down on this luck
And he just couldn't duck - H-I-V
And now he's really - fucked

His time's up, ballot's poofed - will fade towards his final day
No man, a ballet poof - death knocked his ass, he'll have to pay
Ballet poof - now sucks just a medical bong
No more his ballet's spoofed - he's gonna die too young

He's gonna die too young

This is grotesquely unfunny - AIDS wasn't / isn't a joke. Yes I do have a reasonably good sense of humour - this is just hate-filled.

This is ignorant, childish, bigoted and unfunny. Absolutely wretched. I lost 2 friends and a cousin to this horrible immunity system destroyer. BTW, most gays I've ever known are not "ballet poof" types. Look at George Takei or Rob Halford of Judas Priest. Not stereotypical "fags" are they? Take a look around and GET AN EDUCATION.
