We cannot let you marry if you’re gay (The song of the Bigots)

I acknowledge that the current environment and language being used in the debate for same-sex marriage is causing enormous pain to people who identify themselves as part of an LGBT community. My song, The Song of Bigots uses offensive language which may cause some people to be upset or feel emotional pain. My aim through this song is to highlight the bigotry and hypocritical views of conservative Australia. For the record, I’m proudly voting for equality.  – Grant Fenton 23 August 2017.

The song of bigots 

We cannot let you marry if you’re Gay
You can have your Sydney Mardigras
But not your special day
We won’t stand in judgment
If you have sex with a rodent
But we cannot let you marry if you’re Gay

We cannot let you marry if you’re Bent
You can share a flat with a single room
If it helps you pay the rent
But, you should give your friend back his deposit
If he comes out of the closet
No we cannot let you marry if you’re Bent

We cannot let you marry if you’re a Dyke
You can wear overalls and shave your head
And ride a motor bike
But the pre-requisite for this job
Is one of you must have a knob
We cannot let you marry if you’re a Dyke

We cannot let you marry if you’re Queer
You can be a trucky, or a bit of a ducky
Or just a bit of a dear
You can wear pink and purple and turquoise
You can dance all night with Phillipino boys
But we cannot let you marry if you’re Queer.

We cannot let you marry if you’re a Queen
You can be flamboyant and mince about
If you’ve got the gay gene
And although your genetics are in a mess
Only the girl can wear a wedding dress
We cannot let you marry if you’re a Queen

We cannot let you marry if you’re a Fag
You can colour your hair and paint your nails
Performing ABBA dressed in drag
But as far as boy to boy romance
Only one of you can wear the pants
We cannot let you marry if you’re a Fag

We cannot let you marry if you’re a Bear
You can wax your back and crack and sack
And all of your body hair
You can laser treat all of your pubes
You can cover yourself in flavoured lubes
But we cannot let you marry if you’re a Bear

We cannot let you marry if you’re a fruit
There’s no legislation to stop masturbation
But you can’t marry the man you root.
So we’ll ask Australia through the mail
We’re sure the NO VOTE will prevail
We cannot let you marry if you’re a fruit.

We cannot let you marry if you’re Gay
You can be a bus driver, butcher or baker
And work all night and day
You can do anything to say the least
You can even become a Catholic Priest
But we cannot let you marry ….Do you Bill take you Harry …..

We cannot let you marry if you’re Gay.
