This song is about the Scissor Sisters' frontman Jake Shears coming out to his mother as gay. Jake is very close to his mother, and the song was inspired by her. The song's southern influence; "Honkey Tonk Flavor," is a reflection on where Shears wrote the song: at his parents' horse farm in West Virigina.
Kyeta from Glenwood Springs, Colorado I LOVE this song. There is a lot of genius in the production, as well. My favorite is when he sings take your mama out tonight! Like a command. I hope that his coming out was taken well by his mom.
Phoebe from Belchertown, Mafirst comment!! Super catchy song.
