Lyrics for selected songs about Gay Marriage

Traci Adams -- You Are Not God

Today was a victory in Massachusetts
The ban was lifted for Gay marriages
I was so happy for all the couples
About to start family heritages

Then President Bush made a statement
That irked me to the bone
“Marriage is a Sacred Institution
Between a Man and a Woman”
What does he know, What does he know

CHORUS
I always thought marriage was a sacred institution
Between two people who love each other
Committed to One Another
And want to spend their lives together
What does it matter if they are the same sex
If you’re not a part of the couple, then why do you object?
Why are you bothered and care what other’s do
- It’s not hurting you
It doesn’t matter your opinion or if you think that it’s odd
- You Are Not God

Let them be Protected
And raise their own families
They can’t do worse than Us
So sit back, watch, and believe

Then President Bush made a statement
He wanted to impose
“Marriage is a Sacred Institution
Between a Man and a Woman”
He doesn’t know, He doesn’t know

CHORUS

I always thought marriage was a sacred institution
Between two people who love each other
Committed to One Another
And want to spend their lives together
What does it matter if they are the same sex
If you’re not a part of the couple, then why do you object?
Why are you bothered and care what other’s do
- It’s not hurting you
It doesn’t matter your opinion or if you think that it’s odd
- You Are Not God

YOU……ARE….NOT…..GOD!!!!

Thomas Donovan -- What Our Love Is Made Of

It's a two way street to harmony avenue
You got acceptance for me... I got acceptance for you
Comprendo... This ain't no innuendo
I'll tell ya straight
Yeah! I'll tell ya straight

I'm a man with a lover who's a man
Your stamp of approval don't mean a damn
when you're way too gone to understand
What our love is made of

Ignorant arrogance makes a fool out of you
when you're thinking my life style
has something to do with you
I'm not a freak fairy fag pansy poof homo
I'm just a good hearted dude
What are you?

I'm a man with a lover who's a man
Your stamp of approval don't mean a damn
when you're way too gone to understand
What our love is made of

Ooooh... Yeah...
I'm gonna shine it out! Show the world!

I'm so happy now that I told you how I really feel
I'm so happy holding his hand cause our love is real
I'm not a freak fairy fag pansy poof homo
I'm just a good hearted dude
What are you?

I'm a man with a lover who's a man
Your stamp of approval don't mean a damn
when you're way too gone to understand
What our love is made of

Ooooh... Yeah...
I'm gonna shine it out! Show the world!

Green & Root --- Marrying You

Marrying you is like finding the
perfect pair of shoes
And hoping they’ll fit forever

Marrying you is believing that everyday
I’ll wake up in white sheets
Warmed beyond my own cocoon of blood and bone

Marrying you is scary;
it’s lucky and confusing

Marrying you is building this house of
wax and wood,
Color and quiet, hope and holy
Marrying you is something I’ve never
done before and
Hope to never do again, at least not
with anyone else

Marrying you is one of the most exciting
things I’ve ever done

I get to wear the most beautiful dress
I hope our friends and family love us
as we love them
I hope they come, I hope they have fun
Cause this day is for everyone

Marrying you if full of to do lists and
appointments
It’s a massive river we’re swimming in,
sometimes drowning in
Marrying you is floating judgment off
our backs on to the shore
Hoping it doesn’t slap some other pair
as they float by

The straight people say…
“Huh, two women getting married, how unusual.”
And the gay people say…

“Why do you want to imitate straight
culture anyway?”

If they tell me that I’m brainwashed, I’ll
say it’s washed alright

With so much warmth, I couldn’t stay cold
So much comfort, I couldn’t stay alone
So much love I just couldn’t say no.

Puttymeg -- Wed in San Francisco

Well we went down to San Francisco
Hoping that we wed would be.
There were sixteen hundred merry gay couples
My lass Maryl and me.

And we were waiting three long hours -
Some were waiting fifty years.
And the pressmen they were there with cameras
Show the world those happy tears!

But some they say this love's condemned
In a book about Jacob's Children fine
And he had two wives and a great great life
And a couple of slave girl concubines.

And some they claim it injures nature,
While their big cars burn the skies,
With your pizza box and your TV screen
While the good green earth around you dies.

And so it was with education,
Women's suffrage, slavery.
"Rights for us but not for others -
God and Nature both agree!"

*** Silly penny whistle fanfare solo verse ***

There were young and old and short and tall,
And folk of every race so fair,
And a love so true, and me and you
A privelege to be standing there.

So raise your voice in San Francisco,
Or wherever you may be -
Those who love has joined together
Ever will united be!

Roy Zimmerman -- Defenders of Marriage

Every time we think about same-sex marriage
Makes us sick to our guts
I mean, two people who want to commit to a
stable monogamous life-long relationship
What are they, nuts?
It's unnatural!
Now a man should not lie with a
person who is a guy
He should only lie to his wife,
the bible is clear
We're —
Defenders of marriage
In three-button suits
We'll raise our double standard
and see who salutes
Defenders of marriage
Defending the institution against
people who want to
get married Every time we hear
about same-sex parents
"Oh, my gosh!" we exclaim
I mean, two people who want to
provide a protective
and nurturing family environment
Have they no shame?
It's so deviant!
It's the Lord's holy word, as my second
wife said to my third
That a family's based on obligation and fear
We're —
Defenders of marriage
Connubial narcs
Ever vigilant and patriotic patriarchs
Defenders of marriage
Defending the institution against people
who want to get married

One summer evening when my
woman was doing laundry
I shared a six-pack with an old John Bircher
And oh so wisely he imparted an
ancient quandary, to ponder
He said, "It's nature versus legislature."
(Are people born gay, or do they turn gay
just to piss off Dick Armey?)

We're an army of dicks
With a militant stance
Let's get the government out of our lives
and into our pants
Defenders of marriage
Defending the institution against people
who want to get married
And have their insurance carried
And be beneficiary'd
And be next to the ones they love
when they are buried

Peter Donnelly -- Love With Me

Walk with me -- Through all my days
Sleep with me -- And know you're safe
Dream with me -- The whole night long
Wake with me -- To greet each dawn
Work with me -- Throughout the year

Rest with me -- And hold me close

Live with me -- Through pain and toil
Laugh with me -- Unleash my soul
Cry with me -- Our tears be one
Hold onto me -- Your pain is mine
Talk with me -- Keeping life anew
Lay with me -- I'm by your side
Dance with me --Our steps in time
Sing with me -- Our songs unsung

Chorus: Love with me

Have faith in me --I'll calm your fears
Trust in me -- And know I'm here
Look to me -- For strength and peace
Comfort me -- When I need you
Learn with me -- Throughout the years
Grow with me -- As the seasons pass
Pray with me --To the God we know
Love with me -- Be forever mine

Share with me -- Take my hand
Hope with me -- You have my heart
Fly with me -- Our path is one
Set me free -- Forever more

Chorus: Love with me

Scott Free -- Battle Hymn of the Intolerant

this great nation has shown Herself in all Her glory /
up on high flies the truths and tenets of this land /
built Her fortress upon the wisdom of the mighty / we
must fight for the principles for which She stands /
gays shouldn't be allowed to marry / ladies shouldn't
be allowed to vote / and negroes shouldn't be
allowed to be free they shouldn't be / in fields of
battle our stars and stripes will wave forever / we the
people will triumph with God on our side / hail to
victory the treasonous shall soon surrender / sing Her
praises and shout Her solemn pledge with pride /
Arabs should be deported / Indians get off our land /
Mexicans should be strikebreakers / Japanese
should live in camps / Jews should be refused
asylum / handicapped should stay at home / the poor
should fight and die in all our wars / immigrants
should go home

RuPaul -- Love is Love
writers: RuPaul/ Sami McKinney

i see you look at me and judge me with
your eyes
your words are meant to hurt and cut me
down to size
why must i explain to you ? he loves me ,
i love him too !
what on earth has that to do with you ?

so you criticize . do you realize,
i’m a person just like you ?
not gon’ run and hide, just
cause you decide
you don’t like the things i do .

all i know is love is love .
in this world there
ain’t enough
so why you wanna mess with us ?
when you know love is love
really ain’t no difference , the why or
what or who you’re with
so why you have to question it ,
don’t you know love is love.

open up your eyes and you will see
that love is blind
take the time to understand the way
i feel inside.
like a river it must flow , love will choose
the way it goes.
in your heart of hearts i think you know.

cause if you’ve ever loved , then you
know that love’s
heaven sent down from above.
what do you give a damn if he
holds my hand
or the love that we share between us ?

Maryann and Ron Sfarzo -- I Do

The road that led us to this moment
Was not an easy climb
The world would not accept us as we lived our lives as one
But we stood by each other
And here is where we'll stay
Our love is true and faithful as I say, "I DO" today
You are my strength, you are my friend
We're side by side until the end of time
You are my spirit, a song in my heart
As I say, "I DO" today
Times may not be easy, but hey that's what life's about
But together we will make it of this I have no doubt
You are my strength, you are my friend
We're side by side until the end of time
You are my spirit, a song in my heart
As I say, "I DO" today and you say, "I DO" today
I Say I DO, I DO Love You, I Say I DO Today
