You can have your varsity letter
Some bitch with your name on her sweater
You can have your run of your hall
Your banquets for basketball

Cause I am a boy
Even if I choose to wear skirts
You have no weapons against me
Except some fist and some names that don’t hurt

You can have your arms of steel
Your inability to feel
Go ahead smash my head into the wall
Teacher’s kids get away with it all

Cause I am a boy
A boy I will remain
Just there’s more to me
Than how long my erections sustain
I pledge allegiance to the flag
Of the United States of America
And to the republic…

Where I cannot stand without being pushed down
Lacerated by the homecoming crown
Tired of feeling sick at the sound of your bell
Tired of your little don’t ask don’t tell

Cause I am a boy
And I date the same
My name is not faggot
Mothers don’t give kids those names
I am a boy


from Below The Velvet, released February 14, 1996
