You can tell a macho, he has a funky walk



Whew. What a week! Suddenly finding myself in a different role at work, being thrown in at the deep end by being put on a panel to interview a new candidate for another vacancy, and with all the extra stuff I now need to do, I am more relieved than ever that the weekend is looming...

Tomorrow would also have been the 65th birthday of the man with the most celebrated "mouth-muff" of modern times, Mr Glenn Hughes of the "not-gay-at-all" Village People - so all the more reason to don your favourite "gay cliché" outfit (mine's more Hermione Gingold than Hulk Hogan, actually) and start the line dance party with a rousing chorus of their classic Macho Man!



Body, wanna feel my body,
body, baby, such a thrill, my body
Body, wanna touch my body,
body, baby, it's too much, my body
Body, check it out, my body, body,
baby, don't you doubt, my body
Body, talking about my body, body,
baby, checking out my body

Listen here

Every man wants to be a macho man
To have the kind of body always in demand
Joggin' in the mornings, go man go
Workouts in the health spa, muscles grow
You can best believe me
He's a macho man
Glad he took you down with anyone you can
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey

Macho, macho man
I gotta be a macho man
Macho macho man
I gotta be a macho

Body, its so hot, my body,
Body, love to pop my body,
Body, love to please my body,
Body, don't you tease my body,
Body, you'll adore my body,
Body, come explore my body,
Body, made by God, my body,
Body, it's so good, my body

You can tell a macho, he has a funky walk
his western shirts and leather, always look so boss
Funky with his body, he's a king
call him Mister Ego, dig his chains
You can best believe that, he's a macho man
likes to be the leader, he never dresses grand

Hey! Hey! Hey, hey, hey!
Macho, macho man
I've got to be, a macho man
Macho, macho man
I've got to be a macho! (all right)

Body, my body, body, wanna feel my body
Body, baby, body, body, come and thrill my body
Body, baby, body, body, love to funk, my body
Body, baby, body, body, it's so hot, my body

So hot, yeah my body
Allright

Every man ought to be a macho, macho man
To live a life of freedom, machos make a stand
Have your own lifestyles and ideals
Possess the strength of confidence, that's the skill
You can best believe that he's a macho man
He's the special god son in anybody's land
hey, hey, hey, hey, hey

Macho, macho man
I gotta be a macho man
Macho macho man
I gotta be a macho

I gotta be a macho man
I gotta be a mucho mucho, macho macho man
I gotta be a macho


And he was. Apparently Mr Hughes was even buried in his leather outfit...

RIP Glenn Martin Hughes (18th July 1950 – 4th March 2001) - but Thank Disco It's Friday!!!
