The Lyrics

Before I begin...YES! I know I have one too many syllables in the title! I just like it better than any of the alternative forms which fit (Dad's Homo, etc.). Again, this idea came to me while listening to a really good singer perform the original at karaoke. As I improvised at the table, I admit to getting some VERY strange looks from the patrons. ;D

You're my dad - you're mom's husband - you've been wed twenty years,
Now what you've told me - I can't believe my ears!
Daddy's homo - Daddy's homo - no way!

Yes, I've noticed - you've been acting - strangely as of late,
And your new friend "Uncle Herbie" - is really your "man-date".
Daddy's homo - Daddy's homo - he's gay!

You went out ev'ry Tuesday (wearing black leather and studs).
On Thursday through each Sunday you weren't here (clubbing with all your new buds).
And your brand new masseuse? Some fellow named Bruce!
I should have seen you were queer!

Well I'm fin'lly comprehending - your flowery robe.
I hope you I'm not offending - I'm now a homophobe!
Daddy's homo - Daddy's homo - oy vey!
Daddy's homo - he's gay!
I never thought I'd see the day!

Could this be classified as a "transformational" work? ;D

You may have offended some gay people, but that isn't the point. The issue is about gay people who aren't honest about it. The title is a better play on words.
2Eagle - September 10, 2010 - Report this comment The question of the day: Why are the cute hunks gay?

Yep, this guy came out honestly, but I'm not totally comfortable with the singer saying that he's now a homophobe. He's still your Dad; accept him and love him as is. (Yeah, I know it's fiction. Doesn't matter.)

If you wanted a perfectly-scanning title switch, do "Daddy's Gay" to "Yesterday" (by you-know who). Since 2E is speaking of hypocrisy and is linking, here's a *true-life* story of a hypocrite, shouting "I'm Not Gay" (to "Yesterday") after having been caught in the (water) closet:

Since this was a joke -- I don't really boff sheep, either, and I'm "hoping" you're not truly homophobic (I know some very fine gay and lesbian people), gaily giving you a rainbow of flowery Fives.

TT - For heaven's sake, I'm a music major. Gays do not bother me as long as they leave me alone! Besides...what self-respecting gay would ever hit on me? lol :D
