c'mon, now you've got some time
I wanna hear it cuz I need an answer
I know youth dies young
but our youth's just begun
and ain't it a beautiful day

cuz it's true, baby
I need you
I'm damned if i say i do
Gertrude would approve

i need you in the mornin
i need you in the silent afterglow
won't you let my lovin' show, baby

oh anyone can toe the line
except for me cuz I'm a disco dancer
all my life I've been
a gopher with a grin
my smile is fadin' away

cuz it's true, baby
i need you
to shatter the status q
Truman would approve

i need you in the mornin'
i need you in the sunshine, rain or snow
won't you let my lovin' show, baby

otherwise I don't want to hear it
you've got me talkin talkin talkin
well it's better than you
cuz I say I don't wanna fear it
that look that says exactly what you think of me
cuz that's when you would be free oh
from my love
my love
baby baay-bee

c'mon now honey stop denyin'
or I'm forever gonna be a bachelor
leave the steps of your house
get down to the courthouse
give me a G and an A, Y?!

cuz it's true,
baby I need you I'm damned if I say, "I do"
Jesus would approve I need you in the morning I need you
in the scarlet afterglow oh won't you let my lovin' show
baby I need you-oo-ooo I need you to sustain my sorry soul
won't you let my lovin' show
baby I need you I need you I said
I don't wanna hear it you got me talkin talkin talkin
well it's better than you I need you-oo-ooo I need yoooou
I need you to get over my rainbow
I don't wanna hear it I don't wanna hear it
I don't wanna hear it I don't wanna hear it

    General Commentwow.
    is it just me, or is she insinuating she needs this guy to confirm her heterosexuality?
    Or maybe it's just because he keeps denying her love and others suspect she is gay?

    I dunno, but funny and cute song.

    General Commentok, i feel like an idiot now. I just looked at a CD review and this song is supposed to be in FAVOR of gay marriage. Now that i look at the lyrics (and listen) some more, i can see it now.

    Please disregard my last message :-X
    regardless, still amazing song

    General CommentYes, it's a song in favor of gay marriage. Gertrude is Gertrude Stein. Truman could be Truman Capote, or it could even be Harry Truman, who desegregated the military back in 1948.
