And just what am I to wear to this fandango?
Should I encourage some of you to dress
as pirates, swains and cavaliers,
that I not stand out as male alone;
or come in drag and not be able
to dance with Fran and the girls?
Imagine me as a dancing girl --
shades of "Victor-Victoria",
except that my thundering feet
might wake the dead ...
or maybe as the queen for 'Alice',
'cept I'd have to be mean --
perhaps as Salome, hidden behind
all those veils of gosomer mystery,
'cept I'd go bankrupt buying silk,
and have you ever tried to sew that suff?
