PUNKY'S WHIPS Lyrics - FRANK ZAPPA | jteph.info
Ensemble: singing He's so gay He's so gay He's very very gay He's so gay He's so gay And he likes to be that way With his keys all on the right He's into rubber every night He's so gay He's so gay He's almost everyone today. He's okay He's okay He's got a role he wants to play He's okay He's okay He's just a cowboy for a day. Of course, his evening's not complete Without some meat in the seat; Let's skate away Down santa monica today. Maybe he wants a little spanking Maybe he'll eat a little chain Maybe his lover should be thanking him For the way he makes it sprinkle Into drops of golden rain. He's so gay He's so gay He rules the city in a way You could say You could say It's sorta different today All the taffeta and chintz And every leather boy's a prince Hey hey hey! Please don't look the other way.
