i gotta little lisp
and i've been working on my limp
wrist women are a frag
and i think i wanna be a faggot
mincing ninny, a praning fairy,
merry little queen
a brice labruce wet dream,
a nacy boy with wings

Chorus
i wanna be, i wanna be a homosexual (4x)


shock the middle class,
take it up your punk rock ass
you rub your little thing
when you see phony dykes
in penthouse magazine
so whats the difference,
mr. cream rince
you just need a man,
a beefy leather fag
to take you out in drag

Chorus

call me a faggot,
call me a butt-loving, fudge packing, queer
i don't care cause it's the straight in straight edge
that makes me wanna drink a beer
and be a pansy, a homo

shock the middle class,
take it up your punkrock ass
you rub your puny thing
when you see studs with tight jeans pass you on the street
who wears short shorts, you wear short shorts
you're so full of shit
why don't you admit
you don't have the balls to be a queer

Chorus

    General CommentHaha :) this song is so funny!

    And are straight edge people really homophobic? That sucks so much! Excuse me, but what the hell has not-drinking have to do with hating gays?! The original sxe stuff like Minor Threat doesn't say anything about gay people and why should it? It's about being an individual and being able to resist the masses and being in charge of your own life. I wonder what Ian likes people twisting his ideology to look like some conservative bullshit.

    I'm not gay but I think it's completely okay if some people are. and also, I don't drink, (and I love Minor Threat and some other sxe bands) but I don't call myself straight edge either.

    General CommentI'm a lesbian and sXe... so... I dunno it's probably about being what you are and not what society expects of you and that a real punk wouldn't care they'd just do their thing?

    General CommentAs a lesbian, I'm really glad that this song exists. Sometimes I get so fed up with the homophobia in the punk rock community and this song calms me.

    General CommentWho wears short shorts, you wear short shorts. Haha.
    Love this song. Made me laugh really hard when I first heard it.

    Yesterday I saw some kid at my school wearing a Screeching Weasel t-shirt, and funny enough, he was a homosexual.

    General CommentI think it's both hilarious and sad how many posters have felt the need to assure us that they're not gay while commenting on how great this song is. Talk about not having the balls...

    General CommentOoh yeah. Sure fire way to be edgy n cool. Why do you think they call it perverse? Nobody cares what color your skin is, what languages your great grandparents spoke or what foreign objexts you shove up your ass. Just keep it and your scrambled shit death energy the hell away from our kids. Resist diversity. Puke. Fuck off n die.
