    Lyrics

    The evolutionary erection
    Of primitive man
    But before we explore the question of his sense of style
    We must point out his predilection

    To cover his glands
    Brothers, we've been led to believe
    That between Adam and Eve
    There was nothing to hide

    Were it not for Eve's primal haste
    Or a leaf strategically placed
    Who knows what she'd decide
    Eve and some guy named Clyde

    That's why life is a drag
    Life is just a pose in a rag
    You can play the part of
    Pusher or pastor

    Of harlot or hag
    Life is just a dressing game
    Life is a drag
    The argument can be rendered

    All bodies are forcibly gendered
    By how they are wrapped
    And though popular opinion holds this
    Makes us civilized

    So much deference is attended
    By what's in one's lap
    History proves that
    Who wears the pants is as much a mere circumstance

    As a matter of time
    Ultimately, why should we car
    Where one buys one's lace underwear
    If one is so inclined

    Show me yours, I'll show mine
    That's why life is a drag
    Fashion is a long running gag
    We can deck you out in sequins or spandex

    A mohawk or shag
    Who remembers unisex?
    Life is a drag
    It's a drag

    What a drag
    You can be a stag in a bag
    They won't know until you're stiff
    On a slab and they look at the tag

    What you see is what you get
    Life is a drag
    Let's just say
    We hereby conspire

    That a change of attire
    Is all part of the plan
    Something that was so long suppressed
    Starts to show when you wear a dress

    And if clothes make the man
    They can unmake the man
    That's why life is a drag
    Life is just a pose in a rag

    You can play the part of
    Pusher or pastor
    Of harlot or hag
    Life is just a dressing game

    Life is a drag
    It's a drag
    What a drag
    Fashion is a long running gag

    Aren't you glad they found a way to look hip
    When your butt starts to sag
    Praise the Lord, designer jeans
    What you see is what you get

    Who remembers unisex
    And who are you calling fag
    Life is a drag
