This little lyric will be exactly 21 years old tomorrow, as I wrote (24 May 2017). Is that perhaps a sign?
(To the Tune of “Downtown”)
When you’re a queen,
And you are feeling unseemly,
You can always go….
If you like quiche,
And all those tight-buttocked breeches,
When you’re marching slow……..
Listen to the speeches about HIV and herpes,
Lesbian, Gay and Bisexual and Transgender Pride is,
Now what it’s called;
The tights are much brighter there,
You can forget all your troubles, like unwanted hair and go…..
(Things will get better, oh)
(No time for heteros)
Queens will be mincing for you.
(Gay Pride, Gay Pride, Gay Pride, Gay Pride)……
Here is Petula Clark singing Downtown:
