"(What Makes) Gay People Gay"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

What makes gay people gay, now
How did they get that way, now
Why from norm do they stray, now
What can make a man a queen

In the words of Gaga's song
With 'em there's nothing wrong
They're born this way all along
It's a mode caused by code in their genes

La-da da da da da da da
La-da da da da da de
Why aren't they like you and me
What makes gay people gay?

Well there's some people who don't agree
Say it's no proper way to be
And it's in your control, you see
'Cause they say it's a choice

But the pride marchers all say
That they can't help that they're gay
If they could, it's still be okay
This they shout with one voice

La-da da da da da da da
La-da da da da da de
Why aren't they like you and me
What makes gay people gay?

This debate is still ongoin'
Like a turbulent river flowin'
People strong opinions all showin'
In the name of the Lord

They're gonna tell you it's deplorable
Or alternatively, wonderful
I'd rather listen to more Jethro Tull
These discussions get me bored

La-da da da da da da da
La-da da da da da de
Why aren't they like you and me
What makes gay people gay?

Mind my own business, this I do
I can't make up your mind for you
If no one knows what is even true
Let's all just shut up instead

It is no technicality
What we call sexuality
It is not just formality
What we all do in bed ed ed ed ed

I'd say the jury's still out on your song, Hu ;-D. Wonder which side of the cultural divide is doing the Unabombing here. All I can tell you is -- it wasn't me!
