Song Description

medium tempo rock song dealing with social stereotypes, and conventional role-playing in relationships.

Story Behind the Song

I was at a dinner party held by a close friend. the topic of conversation at one point was 'house wives' and how some women intentionally perpetuate that stereotype. I was thinking how a lot of gay men also take on those roles when in relationships - tra


Cooking, cleaning that's what a good woman does
Hot iron steaming in the morn
Hubby rest your weary feet
You've been working hard all day

How demeaning are these roles we do impart
Gay men fighting for the same
Bottom take it from the top
Be a man and take the pain

Can't you see the plight of every wife who toils in roles unchanged
If you make your bed, you lay in it
Don't expect to be unscathed

Wives believing they're the ones who where the pants
Pin-stripes bleeding down the leg
Power tools and doilies
Screw the lace around your dreams

Old dog, new tricks
