The Lyrics

The following politically incorrect silliness is based on a true story that happened in Greenwich Village! You really need to know the original lyrics to get this one.
I'm ornery and straight I am
Ornery and straight I am, I am
Two gays moved into the condo next door
I'm the only straight guy on my floor
I wish I had me a girlie friend
Instead I'm watching Willy marry Sam
I am straight and I am ornery
Ornery and straight I am

Second verse, same as first!

I'm ornery and straight I am
Ornery and straight I am, I am
Two gays moved into the condo next door
I'm the only straight guy on my floor
I wish I had me a girlie friend
Instead I'm watching Willy marry Sam (not Sam!?!)
I am straight and I am ornery
Ornery and straight I am

O! R! N-E-R-Y!
Ornery, ornery,
Ornery and straight I am I am
Ornery and straight I am

Yeah!

F!-I!-V-E-RY...fivery! Fivery...giver of fives I am, I am! (Very good! If I still lived in NY I could've come over and we could've had a real BASH...)

I see... so you put the "square" in Sheridan Square. Come to think of it, is it just a coincidence that the Riviera Cafe, the biggest "Red Sox Fan In Exile" bar in New York, is right across the street from the site of the Stonewall Inn?
