"Now I'm Your Mom" as written by David Byrne and Angel Fernandez....
He is a boy
You are a girl
And you will always stay that way
But there are people
In this world
Who'd like to change what nature made

And if you take that decision
They they will made that incision ? down below

The birds and the bees
Are singin' for me
And this is the song I heard them singin'
Tweedle dee dee
Tweedle dee dee
But I never heard a word they're tellin' me

Oh little girl
Please understand
And listen to the words I say
I was your dad
Now I'm your mom
I hope you'll comprehend someday

I didn't mean to confuse you
And now I know that it's hard to understand

The birds and the bees
Are singin' for me
But I never heard a word they're sayin'
Tweedle dee dee
Tweedle dee dee
Freedom of choice is what they're bringin'

And when Columbus sailed
Upon that mighty sea
Well, we are just like him
Yes, we are pioneers

Into the great unknown
The wild unchartered lands
There ain't no turnin' back
Ain't gonna be no chains on me

Who would ever believe
Caterpillars like me
Turning into a butterfly
Well, I was suddenly free

The birds and the bees
Are singin' for me
And this is the song I heard them singin'
Tweedle dee dee
Tweedle dee dee
Freedom of choice is what they're bringin'

You know I'm man enough
Ain't gonna run and hide
My love is mighty tough
My love is mighty wild

I got a pair a wings
And I'm gonna fly away
Too late to turn back now
Tomorrow came today ? for me

    General CommentSeems to be basically about a sex change and a commentary on the whole identification of men and women, but it seems to be a pretty negative one at that. It says, boys are boys and girls are girls, but some people want to change that. He then goes on to say how the idea is ridiculous and against nature. But then I think it might take a more positive turn at the end, maybe saying how these people are pioneers that are embracing their true nature. And that is an advancement in society that these people have this option and that they can be "suddenly free."
