sleep, darling daughter, all wrapped up in bows

pretty and perfect in the Lord’s afterglow

I love you more than you can understand

but you’ll sleep in the gutter if you dress like a man

 

I knew you weren’t right from the day you were born

paddles and nuns never made you conform

you screamed at the Lord that you were incomplete

and kicked in your mirror when you were three

 

God made two bathrooms, for him and for her

use the right one or you’re going to burn

 

Jesus loves you, but only in a skirt

and the parts that you were given at birth

oh he loves you, so put on that pink dress

he died so you could be Mommy’s princess

 

there’s boys and there’s girls and there’s no in between

you can’t be Adam, you were born Eve

playing with toy soldiers is heresy

please repent darling, make friends with Barbie

 

God made two bathrooms, one’s right and one’s wrong

go sitting down or you’re standing on God

 

Jesus loves you, but only in a skirt

and the parts that you were given at birth

oh, he loves you, so put on that pink dress

he died so you could be Mommy’s princess

 

I saw the hair and the blood in the sink

the doctor said girl, I don’t care what you think

I want grandchildren, so unbind your chest

I want to see Heaven, so put on a dress…

 

honey, I love you, so wear the damn skirt

don’t make me regret that I ever gave birth

I love you, so you’d better feel blessed

to be my little girl, Mommy’s princess
