The Lyrics

After some recent comment exchanges with the talented Tommy Turtle I'd originally targeted this OS for treatment with one of his favorite themes, but once begun wound up taking a 180 (of sorts) ... :-)

For a painfully-downtempo-but-adequate-as-a-tune-reminder midi scroll down to OS title here.
Born to choose, for with my gender twain
any scene I can play “Jeff” or “Jane.”
I could be wife and could be husband, too --
born to choose … now am I “Sue” or “Lou”?

Born to choose, both beam and breach I bear;
cow and bull … I’m built like both down there;
made for pool, with pocket, balls and cue,
born to choose .. now am I “Sue” or “Lou”?

Born to choose, when I’m with Hope or Dawn
I try hard to play “Matt,” “Jim,” or “Sean,”
and use all my chappy-ness to screw …
born to choose, and now I’m using “Lou.”

Born to choose, when in the sack with Wes
balling, I seem only to be “Bess”
with my “knife” discreetly kept from view …
born to choose, and now I’m using “Sue.”

Born to choose … now am I “Sue” or “Lou”?

Thanks, John, AFW, & BAD

BAD -- I've (non-Biblically) known two Beverlys and a (non-Povich Shirley), all unambiguoulsy male, and wished I knew (Biblically) the unmistakably female Stevie Nicks. :-)
