A few little ditties reflecting the recent Supreme Court decision in the great state of California:

First, for those who might be worried about the (inevitable) backlash from the right, here is something from Billy Idol.

Hey California, what have you done?
Hey California, have you jumped the gun?
With Massachusetts we saw ill response
With Massachusetts Bush played politics
Hey California, watch out

Is it time yet for a gay wedding?
Is it time yet to find the dream?

Hey California, why you in a rush?
Hey California, what about backlash?
Sixty percent were leaning anyway
Soon it would come without your judgment day
Hey, California, look out!

Is it time yet for a gay wedding?
Are we too quick to force the dream?

There is nothing fair in this land
And the DOMA's there in this land
And the bigots don't understand
So why risk it all being banned
By overplaying your hand?

Come one:
Is it time yet for a gay wedding?
It it time yet to reach the dream?
Is it time yet to grab the dream?
Is it time yet to build the dream?
Is it time yet to live the dream?

Of course, you might really like that particular song but not fear the backlash at all. For you, I offer this version:

Hey little sister time to come out
Hey little sister no more hiding out
Hey little sister who's the lucky one?
Hey little sister who's the one you want?
Hey little sister time now

It's a nice day for a gay wedding.
It's a nice day to find your dream.

Hey little brother do they laugh at you?
Hey little brother what's the worse they do?
Hey little brother time now live the dream
Hey little brother who's the guy for you?
Hey little brother time now

It's a nice day for a gay wedding
It's a nice day to find your dream.

There is nothin' fair in this land
But you take your love by his hand
And together freely you stand
To proclaim the rights you demand
And to force them to understand...
Find the dream!

Come on
It's a nice day for a gay wedding
It's a nice day to find your dream
It's a nice day to build your dream
It's a nice day to live your dream

And for those who are Percy Sledge fans (and who isn't?), we have a sweet little thing to the tune of When a Man Loves a Woman:

When a man's found his true love
Doesn't matter what the sex
He'll trade the world
For the good thing he's found
If she's a woman he will love her
And society will smile
Believing that's the way things
should go down

But if his love should be his gender
Everybody turns away
Though he's only living what he feels
They want him in the closet
Want them both to go away
They can't believe this love is real

Well, this man loves his boyfriend
He wants to hold him in his arms
He wants to buy a ring and say his vows
He wants to keep him safe from harm

It's damn time to believe it
Time to make the bigots see
All we want is just equality
It's not hurting your marriage
Adding ours into the rolls
Loving hearts in jubilee

When a man loves a man he
Wants to dedicate his life
Commit 'til death do make them part
Yes when a man loves a man he
Only wants to prove his love
Only wants to offer him his heart.

And one final little gift, with love, from Ah-nuld:

MARIA: They say it's time but I don't know,
My husband won't be happy, that's fo' sho'

ARNOLD: I said da cohhts would have deir say
And I would never stand here in da way

Gays are due, Babe
Gays are due, Babe

MARIA: They wonder why I married him,
And wonder if our bed is in the gym

ARNOLD: My wife was born a Kennedy
Doze girlie men can't measure up to me


MARIA: He's my man; I'll believe
Though there are times he makes me heave

ARNOLD: If there's a fight, I'll attack
And if it is gay, I will be back....

MARIA: So, trust the court; let it decide
You said you would; your conscience is your guide

ARNOLD: I never thought they'd find that way
Who knew they'd let you marry if you're gay?


Gays are due de cohhts declayud
Homophobes are running scared
Gays are due it's license time
Gays are due this is sublime!
No path to the White House now
You can't get there anyhow
I could go act in films galore
You call that acting? Now I'm bored!
Gays are due, Babe.

Gays are due, Babe.
Gays are due, Babe.

Gays Are Due, Babe.

(Hasta la vista, Cahleefohnya!)

No comments:


it's your hair that i notice first
streaked with morning
it frames your face
you lying there eyes closed
soft breath not quite there
i follow its path as it bends the sheet
and i can touch you there
touch what i feel is you
in the spark of daylight
you'll rise
pull on the wrinkled shirt from last night
say something you think is beautiful
drink some coffee
from behind my paper
and drive away,
leaving a kiss on my lips
and a hole in my heart
where a fire ought to be
