Track Name: 'Tomboy' by the Trycycles
Tomboy

oh sweet lord,
next time around
wont you make sure I'm a girl
and I'll climb up trees, wear old blue jeans
play football, and scuff my knees
ride a bmx like the best girls in the world

oh how i wish
i was born a Tomboy
instead of this old dumb boy
lord wont you help me with my plan
i'm unhappy as a man

oh sweet lord,
next time around
wont you make sure I'm a girl
and I'll dig up worms with my bare hands
play bass guitar in a punk rock band
wear a bob and a stripy shirt
and a tan that comes off in the bath cos its only dirt

well i tried wearing dresses and i tried high
heel-ing
didn't seem to help with how i'm feeling
i can be a drag queen or an androgene
but there's just one thing a boy cant be
oh woe is me that i cant be
cant be a tomboy

oh sweet lord
next time around
wont you make sure i'm a girl
and i'll skate and surf and jump and climb
wrestle boys and win each time
break some beats and bust some rhymes
take a stand in these troubled times
dance until my two legs hurt
and not feel quite myself in a skirt

oh sweet lord
next time around
wont you make sure i'm a girl
cos a rebel girl with a heart that's kind
a cheeky smile and a cute behind
a better lover is hard to find
and the best little rebel girl that used to be mine
she agrees
