    the replacements 

    “androgynous”

    (Westerberg)
    Let it Be, Twin/Tone Records, 1984

    Here come Dick, he’s wearing a skirt
    Here comes Jane, y’know she’s sporting the chain
    Same hair revolution
    Same build – evolution
    Tomorrow who’s gonna fuss

    And they love each other so
    Androgynous
    Closer than you know, love each other so
    Androgynous

    Don’t get him wrong and don’t get him mad
    He might be a father, but he sure ain’t a dad
    And she don’t need advice that’ll center her
    She’s happy with the way she looks
    She’s happy with her gender

    And they love each other so
    Androgynous

    Mirror image, see no damage
    See no evil at all
    Kewpie dolls and Euro stalls
    Will be laughed at
    The way you’re laughed at now

    Now, something meets Boy, and something meets Girl
    They both look the same
    They’re overjoyed in this world
    Same hair revolution
    Unisex evolution
    Tomorrow who’s gonna fuss
    And tomorrow Dick is wearing a skirt
    And tomorrow Janie’s wearing a skirt
    Future outcasts and they don’t last
    And today, the people dress the way that they please
    The way they tried to do in the last centuries

    And they love each other so
    Androgynous
