Lyrics

Paul's Song

Written By: Alison Block


(VERSE)
I’m just a girl who loves a boy whose name is Paul
He’s the man of my dreams. He’s smart, he’s sweet, he’s tall.
We have a lot in common. We just seemed to click
One thing we have in common: we both like dick.

(CHORUS)
Just my luck the man I love is gay
He moisturizes and exfoliates everyday
He’s obsessed with Barbara Streisand
You know I am just a girl who loves a boy who loves a man

(VERSE 2)
Paul and I met at a Halloween party
I was dressed as Marylyn Monroe and so was he.
We both look good but one thing I can’t deny
Wearing a dress Paul has better legs than I

(CHORUS 2)
Just my luck the man I love is gay
Should have known when he turned down a football game for the ballet
He knows the difference between sandalwood and tan
You know I am just a girl who loves a boy who loves a man

(BRIDGE)
Paul takes me out to dinner. He picks the restaurant
The boy has amazing taste
But the only time he’s been in my bedroom
Was to redecorate the place

(VERSE 3)
I love him so much I am loosing my mind
But what can I do? He likes it from behind
As if that weren’t enough. I just can’t seem to win
Cause the guy that Paul is fucking now is my ex-boyfriend

(CHORUS 3)
Just my luck the man I love is gay
He promises I’ll meet a great straight guy
Think I’ll give up and just become a lesbian
You know I am just a girl who loves a boy who loves a man
Yeah, I am just a girl who loves a boy who loves a man
