"Boyfriend" as written by and Martha/whitby Redbone....
Standing in a starbucks line,
He was sipping lemonade
He didn't give a damn about all the people or what they said
I ordered my coffee, strong and black and straight

We talked about love and garbage
And he told me that he was gay

I guess it's "c'est la vie", guess I should have known
Thought I'd found a lover, that's the way life goes
Said he'd like to know me, see me once again
Maybe we can hang...

[Chorus]
He said I've got a boyfriend
He said I've got a boyfriend, ooh
He said I've got a boyfriend
But I kinda like girls, too...

Even all the times we hung out on platonic dates
It was only then that I found out we were true soul mates
I was almost certain that he'd suit me to the tee
'Til I caught him wearing my dress and looking better than me

I guess it's "c'est la vie", guess I should have known
Thought I'd found a lover, that's the way life goes
Said he'd like to know me, and his feelings sometimes change
But I thought...what a waste

[chorus]

I guess it's "c'est la vie", guess I should have known
Thought I'd found a lover, that's the way life goes
Said he'd like to know me, see me once again
Maybe we can hang...

[Chorus: x 2]
