| The Gay
They giggle ‘n jiggle,
Yes, here they come, five gay mammies, "the fab five"
of television, eager to contribute their "gay eye"
to the master, "the straight guy," yearning
to serve him. Yes, here they come.
Ready to dress him,
They dish (each other),
They bumble (gayly)
They fumble (gayly),
Even moo (like baby cows)
and they do (everything for the "straight guy"),
They evince (joy at the prospect of pleasing).
They butter (him up)
The "straight guy" basks in all this faggoty
The five encourage,
He girds his courage,
Drops his pants,
But they ain't (interested in other than dressing him
He yawns (in a manly way),
He mutters (in manly regard for all this faggoty attention)
They shudder (in awe of all this wondrous straightness)
Into his room, five gay nannies bounce, prancin' and dancin'.
He staggers (in a manly way into his apartment, now bursting
with fab gayety).
He disdains (subtly, in a manly way).
Oh, he reigns!
Then she enters:
He grasps (her in a manly way)
Express straight bliss.
The mammies watch on television.
They blush (at the beauty of straight romance),
They kiss (each other in a sisterly way),
Express gay bliss.
But never even masturbate.
Because sex is for the straight guy; and the fab five
fawning gay mannies are in the world only to please him.
Now there they go,
Talking about day glo'
Prancin' and dancin'...

The dyke eye for the straight chick?
The white eye for the black dude?
The goy eye for the ... Jewish boy?
