Gays That I Know

[original source unknown]

Sung to the tune of:

“These Are a Few of My Favorite Things”

Big dykes with small dogs and butches with kittens;

Diesels in tall boots with chains on their mittens;

Femmes in their lipstick with rings in their nose;

These are a few of the gays that I know.

Men who can cook and make great apple strudels;

Women who think and can sure use their noodles;

Some who like dressing in black leather clothes;

These are a few of the gays that I know.

Men in tight dresses with gold lame sashes;

Makeup and high heels and long false eyelashes;

Men who have muscles and men who wear hose;

These are a few of the gays that I know.

REFRAIN:

When the right wing

Spews its hatred

And it makes me sad,

I simply remember the gays that I know

And then I don’t feel – – – so bad.

Doctors and nurses and students and teachers;

Soldiers and singers and actors and preachers;

Lawyers who fight in the courts with our foes;

These are a few of the gays that I know.

Nieces and uncles and sisters and brothers;

Parents who live with significant others;

Brave sons and daughters who let their love show;

These are a few of the gays that I know.

Young politicians with courage and vision;

Leaders with guts who can make a decision;

Those in the closets and those on the go;

These are a few of the gays that I know.

REFRAIN:

First Anita,

then it’s Limbaugh,

It just makes you mad,

But always remember the gays that you know

And then you won’t feel – – – so bad!
