The Coming Out Party


It’s time

Let the lights shine

Break out the Bacardi

All Hail the coming out party

 

Might not be a big thing

Why don’t you see what’s underneath

Jump up and down and sing

Why did Eve have to wear a leaf?

 

Times are changing

Not so much for the world

So the closets are flaming

Even children want to unfurl

 

Why hide so much

When all love is hearty

So much Sweetness to the touch

Time for a coming out party

 

Break the taboo

Was it really written in stone?

Powers that be don’t have a clue

They tap more than a telephone

 

Raise your voices

And take a stand

You have choices

Hold the same hand

 

What a treasure

Make their hearts see

Pleasure is the measure

Just join the coming out party

Call My Stand In


What does it take

To keep your love

What a good pair we make

Like hand and glove

 

Don’t my kisses do right

Sometimes I can’t begin

Before we start to fight

Go head call my stand in

 

I see you there

But I can’t see your face

You want to be somewhere

Just not here, but some other place

 

If I can’t do right by you

How can I win

I know what you can do

Call my stand in

 

Somebody knows

How your wind blows

It’s a shame it ain’t me

It’s all gone oh so wrong

Shame on me, way too long

Was I that blind I couldn’t see?

 

But now, I know the game you play

Some might call it a sin

Why should I let you get away

When you can just call my stand in
