The Lyrics

From "Flower Drum Song". I went to the NYC Gay Pride Parade this past Sunday 6/29/08. Yes, there is an organization called "Dykes on Bikes". And Governor David Paterson and Mayor Mike Bloomberg and other politicians marched, too!
I’m a straight, and sometimes that really sucks!
I am not what the fellas call desirable,
Not a thin girl who sells her bod for bucks.
I am not what employers think is hirable.
I agree that most gender roles are silly,
So today I’ll escape to where I’ll fade,
Where the gals dress so tough and guys are frilly.
What a dilly at today’s Gay Pride Parade!

When I see a bouffant hairdo
On a man with a beard for days
With bare legs that show what Nair’ll do,
I enjoy seeing the gays!

There’s drag queens on golden perches
Who shout out “Happy Gay Pride Day!”
There’s praise songs from lib’ral churches.
I enjoy seeing the gays!

I flip over fellas dressed in flowers.
I drool over bare and shiny pecs!
I wish that these sweetie boys were ours.
It’s too bad that they want each other for the sex!

I’m not such a female female,
And today I will hope to see
A flamboyant and flagrant she-male
Who’ll enjoy
Being a guy
Acting so gay
For me.

There’s “bike dykes” on motorcycle
And the floats where they dance for days.
There’s Gov Dave and Mayor Michael!
I enjoy seeing the gays!

Balloons and the flags of rainbow
And the marchers who shout “Stop AIDS!”
The rightists cry, “Where’d the shame go?”
I enjoy seeing the gays!

They try to oppress the homosexual
With beatings and laws and church decrees,
But those methods prove so ineffectual,
For the tighter you squeeze, the more will slip out free!

I’m not such a female female,
And today I will hope to see
A flamboyant and flagrant she-male
Whoooooo’ll enjoy
Being a guy
Acting so gay
For me!

Surprisingly, not offensive at all, pretty cute little parody and only poking slight fun at some stereotypes without being offensive, very good job.

Yes, there is a lot of gender confusion out there in ~SFO~ Bay ! That's why I'll be at the Bill Pickett Rodeo on the 12, 13th. Looking at real men: Cowboys! ~Ay, Cohiba~

Good stuff with a thought-provoking penultimate verse. But are you suggesting that some women adopt the gay lifestyle because of lack of success in a heterosexual lifestyle?

John Jenkins: No, I'm not. Thanks for asking!

This was great!!! One of your best for sure Melanie I loved it especially the line, "A flamboyant and flagrant she-male"

(Ages2) Definitely one of your best, Mel. Can't remember if I've read a parody involving gay people as a central theme before, so you get points there. 555 for you!

Melanie this is a very well written piece, and hits on a lot of good points within the gay-community while being supportive and not offensive, it fits the original song so well, you definitely got all 5's from me, see "The Gay Voice" comment, which sums up my opinion pretty well.

Still love it on the 2nd read, Melanie. You stayed on the correct side of "the line" with your very enjoyable musical romp.

Ages: Very well done, I agree with what BAD said. "It's too bad they want each other for sex" made me lol
