The Lyrics

She will “borrow” all my things—they’re gone.
She’s curious, my wife—
sometimes Kendra becomes Ken
and then lives out a second life.

She heads down to the bar
without a trace of sashay.
She’s shed her gladrags for he-dom;
it’s getting a bit outré.

Though not prowed, it’s she who’s wearing men’s duds
that really belong on me.
You can bet she’s wearing a man’s tie. . .
missing missus millinery.

All her gladrags handed down to Sue. . .
gave her best vestments away.
There’s no doubt, it’s getting out of hand. . .
cross-dress in dude array.

Used to have a mini’s wardrobe—
now it’s suits in pieces three.
Former raiment was so sexy:
flowing were her fleeces free.

A she-boy now who’s suitin’
up in this “sir” charade.
What’s a guy to do when his gal learns the art
of the haberdasher’s trade?

In a crowd she stands out wearin’ men’s duds
that really belong on me.
She’s divested me of my best ties
planned with haberdashery.

All her gladrags are handed down to
Sue; a few have gone to May.
There’s no doubt: reinvention as man. . .
cross-dress in dude array.

Good old fashioned syllable twisting. Glad to see it coming back. Women dressing in men's clothing never seemed to create the stir that men in drag could arouse.
