The Lyrics

DKTOS? click here for a MP3. David Bowie did this first (TOS, not a sex change).

He wondered 'bout his sex
He liked a woman's sha-ape
Wore make-up and a dress
And saved up for the cha-ange
Which came as no surprise
We spoke of this at times -
- 'bout how he takes hormones
and longs for womens' cones

Who knows?
Not me
I never judged his soul

His face
Will change
When the man becomes a girl

[short break]

At last "the day's" at hand
He made his way from ho-ome
The surg'ry went as planned
To turn his pole to ho-ole
These days she goes as Claire
You think that you could tell? -
- I bet you'd never know
He was an av'rage Joe

Who knows?
Not me
I never judge her soul

New face
New name
For the man who's now a girl

[short break]

Well Joe's
A she
Seems strange well this I know

Her place
Her way
Was a man who's now a girl

Are you sure that Bowie haven't had a sex change operation? Or two? :-)

Ah, what a great OS. Of course, I'm partial to the Bowie version, since he wrote it but, Nirvana did a great job with it. As did you, here Jack. Funny and five-ish.

DKTOS, but "pole to hole" alone is worth 5. Topical and funny.

Thanks AFW, Peter, Alvin, John, Rick C, PAt and Tommy T.

AFW: I appreciate you mentioning "human interest" since that was my main goal with this parody.

Peter: No, I'm not.

John: I'm guessing that comment is a reference to another Bowie tune, though what come to mind is the Chia pet jingle (Cha-cha-cha-chia).

Rick: I have to admit I like Nirvana's a bit more since the reverbed guitar is absent, but David Bowie's lyrics were/are great in TOS.

Tommy Turtle: The reverse procedure is called an addadictomy. Maybe a follow up to this called "The Man Who Was A Girl" is in order.
