Once He Had a Love

(Apologies to Blondie)

At Club Odyssey
he was "Mona Sinclair"

then took off his dress
and lost all his flair.

Had no hunch "Steve Wiles"
would be so un-fun 

when he turned all GOPpy
and yessed Amendment One.

You're a real man now
but maybe you're blind

if you think you can leave
all your friends behind.

Ooh ooh ooh-ahh
ooh ooh ooh-ahh ...
