lyrics

say what you will about the way i love
say what you will about the lord above
say what you will about the way i live
you keep on knocking but you can’t come in

i’m gay, and i don’t mean happy
it’s the love that dare not speak it’s name
i’m gay, and the world wants to slap me
i’ll keep my self esteem and you can keep you shame

shame the way the world makes you choose black or white
when colorful’s the path of truth
i’m in love with a man, it ain’t wrong it ain’t right
it’s just the way it is, it’s natural, me i’m your proof

i’m gay, and i don’t mean happy
it’s the love that dare not speak it’s name
i’m gay, and the world wants to slap me
i’ll keep my self esteem and you can keep you shame

my father told me to make like a tree
and get the hell out of his house
my mother wishes i’d turned out like james dean
he’s dead, guess i see what she means
my sister and i got something in common
i give her pointers bout shining the Brahman
my friends all said it’s okay then
they turned and walked away
what can i say?
seems that the way they cum
is the way they go

i’m gay, and i don’t mean happy
it’s the love that dare not speak it’s name
i’m gay, and the world wants to slap me
i’ll keep my self esteem and you can keep you shame
