Either/Or World
Words & Music by Diana Di Gioia

Well it’s an either/or world, it’s all about what’s in your pants
People think they know you with just one glance
Not me, baby, I was meant to be your 40% boy

It’s ladies or it’s gents, you’re either queer or your straight
I’m told that anything else is just a need to perseverate
But don’t you believe it, I’m living proof of a 40% boy

There’s boys who look like girls, and girls who look like boys
And there’s everything in between
I wish old Mr. Kinsey had composed another scale
That would explain everything I’ve seen

It’s an either/or world, it’s day or it’s night
These pantyhose have always been way too tight
It’s my style to be your un-categorizable 40% boy

They put me in a training bra when I was half grown
If you’ve gotta train ‘em they’ve got a mind of their own
That didn’t stop me from growin’ up to be your 40 % boy

Now I was born a girl who never grew to be a man
It just wasn’t in the cards
I’m dealin’ with the pay cut the best that I can
Without trading in any parts

I believe the ties that bind us to one tight pair of genes
Have a little more wiggle room in their chromosomal schemes
I’m your --- double X rated --- 40% boy

Now if you’re new in town it’s gonna feel a little strange
You might think of gender as an expensive thing to change
I’m your low budget 40% boy

There’s boys who look like girls, and girls who look like boys
And there’s everything in between
I wish old Mr. Kinsey had composed another scale
That would explain everything I’ve seen

Well it’s an either / or world, It’s all about what’s in your pants
People think they know you with just one glance
Some things are more than skin deep, baby
Like a 40% boy
Some things are more than skin deep, baby -- like a 40% boy
