Shame

lyrics

Home all alone, hoping someone throws me a bone.
But the phone don't ring
And all I can do is sing about the shame of loneliness.
Are we all the same? Confess.

I go to the Y and catch 'em in the corner my eye.
And why do I go to the Y and spy on the naked guys?
It's not that I'm gay, though that'd be okay
But you probably think I'm a fag anyway.
I don't want to touch; just want to see how much bigger they are.

It's the shame of nakedness. Who's to blame for this?

Run the court, swing the stick.
It may be short, but it's really thin.
