Couples In The Rain
Sorry, folks, there's been a hoax,
That's right ma'am, it's all a scam,
You see, there's been this huge mistake,
Your marriage license is a fake...
A promise rendered, a fealty pledged
it's not as legal as alleged.
The Mayor has over-stepped his bounds,
so please, no tux and wedding gowns..
the courts have gotten paranoid
and declared your vows are null and void.
Cancel the enlightened interlude.
Back in the closet...sorry, dude!
We hope this hasn't wrecked your life,
and that of your husband, or your wife,
but you threaten traditions we all hold dear,
you've sparked a tidal wave of fear.
There will be no sympathy for you here.
Besides, you're queer,
in an election year
