Sex Change Romance

Some boys want to drive a fast car
Some boys have a need for speed
Some boys want to put her into orbit
But not me, I have a girl who drives like Richard Petty
I park my wagon by her sixty-four Corvette
She drives me crazy when she guns it past another yellow

I let her lead when we go to a square dance
She watches football while I put my hair in
curls, I'll take my chances on my sex-change romance
I stay at home while she goes drinking with the girls

Some girls would rather see an art flick
Some girls want the hero dead
Some girls want a thought-provoking ending
But not me, I have a girl who watches Dirty Harry
At Hamlet, she keeps looking for Mel Gibson's ass
We barter subtitles for subatomic space invaders

I let her lead when we go to a square dance
She watches football while I put my hair in curls
I'll take my chances on my sex-change romance
I stay at home while she goes drinking with the girls

Some boys want to be a rock star
Some boys want to crash the drums
Some boys want to turn it to eleven
But not me, I have a girl who listens to Def Leppard
I'm making room for Cheap Trick in my Crowded House
Three chords from Warrant leave her floating up to ballad Heaven
I let her lead when we go to a square dance
She watches football while I put my hair in curls
I'll take my chances on my sex-change romance
She can be the boy as long as I can be the girl
