"Fag Hag" as written by Gregory Allen Kurstin and Lily Allen....
I like apple pie
And you like banoffee
We both love shopping for furniture
And meeting for coffee
We pretend we're into art galleries
'Cause it makes us feel clever
We're both in our element when we're on our knees
Whatever the weather

I could be your fag hag
And you could be my gay
I'll never make you feel sad
When you come out to play
I could be your fag hag
And you could be my gay
I'll never make you feel sad
When you come out to play

We don't give a fuck
What people are thinking
I know you'll always look out for me
When we go out drinking
I can ask you things I can't ask anyone
And you'll give me direction
Apart from me, you're the only other person I know
Who reads the travel section

I could be your fag hag
And you could be my gay
I'll never make you feel sad
When you come out to play
I could be your fag hag
And you could be my gay
I'll never make you feel sad
When you come out to play

I could be your fag hag
And you could be my gay
I'll never make you feel sad
When you come out to play
I could be your fag hag
And you could be my gay
I'll never make you feel sad
When you come out to play

    General Commentto anyone who doesn't know what the chorus means or what a fag hag is:
    a fag hag is a girl who is bestfriends with a gay guy.
    she's the fag hag, he's the fag, or the gay.
    so "i could be your fag hag, and you could be my gay."

    and all a gay guy needs is a best girlfriend to be friends with.
    so "she'll never make him feel sad when he does his own thing and play"
    because girls need that one gay guy in their life.
    cuz we are the best, aren't we.

    My OpinionHonestly, I can't tell if this song is supposed to be very subtle satire of the concept or if it's played perfectly straight because if it's the latter, I can think of another of Allen's songs I would like to refer to her in response. I'm quite sure you can figure that one out.

    If this song isn't satire, then it's basically the bane of my existence as a gay man. Even moreso to me than the raving homophones. At least they are aware of what they're doing. This song just proves to me that Allen is blatantly oblivious to her own shortcomings in the matter.

    I'm not your fashion accessory. I'm not a girl, I'm just gay. I'm not femme and even if I was, even if I loved fashion and interior design and all that stuff, I still would absolutely loathe people with this attitude. I don't need or want to be "one of the girls" and I have no desire to be what amounts to be a modern day eunuch.

    Fuck this and fuck the "pet gay" trend. I as a gay person do not exist as a backdrop to you as a straight person. Just because we both like dick and you're okay with that doesn't mean I am basically a woman. Fuck you very much for conflating sexual orientation with gender identity as well.

    General CommentThis is a cute song. I saw an advert for Lily's new album that had something like "Lily's back!!" for its tagline, and while I was skeptical at first I've realised I really did miss the girl. Good on her!
