"Boy or a Girl" as written by Roger Manning and Eric Dover....
Come sit with a total stranger.
Now's the time to vent your anger.
And oh, are you a boy or a girl?
Do you get off casting hexes,
Assuming forms of either sexes,
And oh...are you a boy or a girl?
Well, I've been confused by the startled look in your eyes.
Have I been misused, hanging on by the skin of my teeth
While you're raping my mind?
Do you feel misunderstood?
You feel straight, but you knock on wood.
Are you a boy or a girl?
You came to grips with what you know
And boosted ratings for the daytime shows.
Now you're on top of the world.
I'm a fan so don't dismiss me.
America is armed and listening.
And oh... Are you a boy or a girl?
Well, I've been confused by the startled look in your eyes.
Have I been misused, hanging on by the skin of my teeth
While you're raping my mind?
Do you feel misunderstood?
You feel straight, but you knock on wood.
Are you a boy or a girl?
Well, I've been confused by the startled look in your eyes.
Have I been misused, falling head over heels for a star
While you feed me a line?
'Cause I feel misunderstood.
I feel straight, but I'm not so sure.
Are you a boy or a girl?
Are you a boy or a girl?
Are you a boy or a girl?

    General CommentAwesome Song!!! Why didn't more people appreciate this band?

    I'm pretty sure this is about people who experiment with cross-dressing but aren't necessarily renouncing their otherwise heterosexual lifestyles. In my lifetime, I've noticed a fair amount of people who get a kick out of dressing in drag but are completely straight otherwise. A famous example would be Ed Wood, the infamous B-movie director. It could also be about the glam-rocker style of dress since it is deliberately effeminate. Considering these guys were essentially glam, that makes sense too.
