Song Description

A moving bluegrass song, in which a straight man becomes upset over the fact that gay men do not find him attractive.

Story Behind the Song

A was telling a nice young woman about how gay men never hit on me, and that it bothered me, even though I was straight. I realized that his was a great subject for a song.

Lyrics

VERSE 1
I've been a guilty liberal for nearly all my years
Got a lot of gay friends that some straight folk call queers
They say Ooh, just think about that thing that they do
They act homophobic so tried and so true

But what really gets them angry and gurglin their phlegm
Is when a sweet boy starts to hitting on them
to tell you the truth it upsets me some too
But there's a different reason why I feel so blue

CHORUS 1
Cause Gay men, they don't think I'm pretty
When I walk down Castro, they frown
I want a big butch stud to make a pass at me
So I can turn him down

VERSE 2
Once had me a roommate, as gay as can be
Not once did he ever lay a hand upon me
When his buddies would visit, I'd bend over once or twice
Never touched me at all, they were always so nice

I'm a friend o' the fag and a friend o' the dyke
and I don't give a rat's ass what kind of sex you like
I support obscure celebrities when they come out
But when I'm in West Hollywood, I have to pout

CHORUS 2
Cause Gay men, they don't think I'm pretty
When I walk down Melrose, they frown
I want a sexy twink boy to make a pass at me
So I can turn him down

BRIDGE
It'd just be nice to know
If it doesn't work out with girls,
I'll have a place to go

VERSE 3
So don't get me wrong, I'm not leaning that way
My spot on the Kinsey scale never will sway
I'm a hetero, a breeder, I love the fairer gender
and I won't judge your heart by the end that you enter

CHORUS 3
Cause Gay men, they don't think I'm pretty
When I'm in Greenwich Village, they frown
I want a manly bear man to make a pass at me
So I can turn him down

CHORUS 4
Cause Gay men, they don't think I'm pretty
When I hang out in South Beach, they frown
I want a classy drag queen to make a pass at me
So I can turn him down
