Life's candy and the sun's a ball of butter



And so here is is, Merry Xmas! Everybody's having fun! Let us celebrate the gathering of myriad queens, dykes, trannies, and varieties in-between for this most fabulous of days. Happy Gay Pride Day!!

Don't tell me not to live,
Just sit and putter,
Life's candy and the sun's
A ball of butter.
Don't bring around a cloud
To rain on my parade.

Don't tell me not to fly
I've simply got to.
If someone takes a spill,
It's me and not you.
Who told you you're allowed
To rain on my parade!

I'll march my band out,
I'll beat my drum,
And if I'm fanned out,
Your turn at bat, sir.
At least I didn't fake it.
Hat, sir, I guess I didn't make it!

But whether I'm the rose
Of sheer perfection,
Or freckle on the nose
Of life's complexion,
The cinder or the shiny apple of its eye,
I gotta fly once,
I gotta try once,
Only can die once, right, sir?
Ooh, life is juicy,
Juicy, and you'll see
I'm gonna have my bite, sir!

Get ready for me, love,
'Cause I'm a "comer,"
I simply gotta march,
My heart's a drummer.
Don't bring around a cloud
To rain on my parade!

I'm gonna live and live now,
Get what I want - I know how,
One roll for the whole shebang,
One throw, that bell will go clang,
Eye on the target, and wham!
One shot, one gun shot, and bam!
Hey, Mister Arnstein, here I am!

I'll march my band out,
I will beat my drum,
And if I'm fanned out,
Your turn at bat, sir,
At least I didn't fake it.
Hat, sir, I guess I didn't make it.

Get ready for me, love,
'Cause I'm a "comer,"
I simply gotta march,
My heart's a drummer.
Nobody, no, nobody
Is gonna rain on my parade!

  1. Had the most fabulous day dear - it really is lovely to spend Gay Xmas with you and your friends - a shame I had to leave so early for Take That but the Pet Shop Boys and the That boys were both amazing so it was worth it - totally knackered - feel like I've run a marathon today.

    Enjoy Polari tomorrow and see you all soon

    Love to ALL
