  • Every time I go to dinner, seems like I get a little bit thinner
    I'll sit down at the breakfast table, I can talk well they’re not able
    When I look at them I find, there's a single question on their mind
    I wish it could go back to the way it was
    It’s not easy now because

    My whole family thinks I’m gay
    I guess it’s always been that way
    Maybe it’s ‘cause of the way that I walk
    That makes them think I like… boys
    That I like boys

    The goddamned question just won’t go away
    And I get asked every single day
    But the way they ask it is not a disguise
    Like, “How was your day do you like to kiss guys?”
    This was the worse baby this was my fear
    Now there opinions are crystal clear

    Because, my whole family now is shocked
    I’m in the closet and the door is locked
    Now my glory days are gone
    I was John Elway now I’m Elton John
    My whole family now suspects
    Watching Spongebob had side effects
    I’m not gay and that’s what I said
    If I’m gay, hey God strike me dead
    (coughing and choking fit)
    That’s weird
    Just ‘cause I’m on the cheerleading team
    Or my birthday party had a Broadway theme
    When I go outside what do I see
    That the clouds in the sky spell F-A-G

    Because, I think that god might think I’m gay
    What does he know anyway?
    My Grandma gave me a present last year
    And the card said “Happy Birthday Queer”
    My whole family thinks I’m fab
    “There’s a guy’s butt. Hey Bo, take a stab.”
    Come on?
    “Why doesn’t he get women? There’s no other way?”
    It’s ‘cause I’m lanky not ‘cause I’m gay
    Not ‘cause I’m gay

    Just ‘cause I’m afraid of the snow
    Or my favorite color is the rainbow
    (Heh… it was a joke)
    I don’t mean to yell but I fear I must
    Because I’m losing the people that I thought I could trust

    Because even my boyfriend thinks I’m gay
    Just kidding heh…heh
    You all probably think I’m gay
    Man this song is counterproductive
    Because my whole family thinks I’m gay
    What do they know anyway?
    You gotta look right through the haze
    Easy bake oven was just a phase
    My whole family thinks I’m queer
    That is all I ever hear
    But I’ve been as straight as a ramp
    If you don’t count Bible camp
    Bible camp
    I’m not gay I swear
