The Lyrics


She never liked her hair
She cut it short like me-ens
Her gender in despair
Had thoughts like lesbia-ans
She wondered in her mind
'No lady - I'm a guy -
Darn XX chromosomes'
And so the story goes

This girl's
No she
Was longing for a pole

New face
No lace
She's the man who was a girl

At last "the day's" at hand
For her 'big' surgery-y
The doctors know it as
An addadictomy-y!
He's shed all female ware
He's now 'Mechanic Bill' -
- I thought you'd might have known
By all the 'tools' he owns!

Who knows?
Not me
Whatever floats his boat

I'd say!
With the man who was a girl

[short break]

You know
It seems
This story's seldom told

It's strange
So strange
That this man was once a girl

LOL Is that a true word... addadictomy? Funny if it is...or isn't. 5's

DKTOS, but muli-layered pun "addadictomy-y" ( me) is worth Fives alone....
Adagio, it's evidence of RA's rapid creative growth witnessed even in TT 's two months' time here.

Thanks Adagio, Alvin, and Tommy Turtle. To the person who posted under my name with the comment of "Well done! 555", thank you, glad you liked it. In the future though please use your own name or a pseudonym other than my pen name.

This parody started of as a drag, but ended up completely altered! ;-)

I never thought someone could get a sex change like that (then again, I know celebrities like Ciara and Sailor Monn did it), and well done with the pacing!555

hey Red, in light of our recent discussion, this here is a classic example of perfect pacing imo - can't be emphasised any other way than perfectly - I read it against the OS and it's brilliant, including the subs - 555

Thanks Peter, LeeBee, Joel, AmIRight Butt-head and Stu. Stu, thanks for checking this out against TOS. One typo though: "you'd" should just be "you". Pat: Nope, I made it up.
