Here's a song for everyone whose gender isn't "male" or "female". Share it freely.

They told me when I started school
I had to join a line
There's one for girls and one for boys
I asked them which was mine
They asked me if my mother raised
A daughter or a son
They sent me to the corner, where
I made a line of one.

And the line for the girls was pretty pretty pink
And the line for the boys was blue
There's another line for everyone else
The line for me and you.

Some people have a mind that's small
A mind that gives them trouble
With party frocks and stompy boots
And lipstick on my stubble.
You tell me I'm confused about
The person I should be
The only one confused is you
I know that I am me.

And the door for the girls was pretty pretty pink
And the door for the boys was blue
There's another door to the outside world
The door for me and you.

Now, if you think your business is
To label me, or guess
The sort of thing I keep beneath
My trousers, or my dress,
It's not your call to ask about
The contents of my pants,
Unless I take you home to bed...
And... sweetie, not a chance.

And the world for the girls was pretty pretty pink
And the world for the boys was blue
There's another world for everyone else
The world for me and you.

If I ever meet the Wizard of Oz, I'll ask him to turn me into a spider. Here's a song about that.



I would hurry to the kitchen
with pedipalps a-twitching,
to see what I could get.
And when there I would eat all
the insides of every beetle,
if I had a spinneret.

And that's only the beginning;
it sets my head a-spinning
to see them in my net.
To the edge I would scarper
where I'd pluck it like a harper
if I had a spinneret.

Oh, I could catch the fly
that ventured near my web,
then another as the hunger starts to ebb.
I'd be an arthropod celeb.

And I'd tell the tale with recaps
from more than seven kneecaps
to everyone I met.
And I'd be the provider
of a web for every spider
if I had a spinneret.

Searching for music that I wrote as a teenager, I came across this arrangement of Go to Joan Glover.
