  • Here come Dick, he's wearing a skirt
    Here comes Jane, you know she's sporting a chain
    Same hair, revolution
    Same build, evolution
    Tomorrow who's gonna fuss

    And they love each other so
    Androgynous
    Closer than you know, love each other so
    Androgynous

    Don't get him wrong and don't get him mad
    He might be a father, but he sure ain't a dad
    And she don't need advice that'll center her
    She's happy with the way she looks
    She's happy with her gender

    And they love each other so
    Androgynous
    Closer than you know, love each other so
    Androgynous

    Mirror image, see no damage
    See no evil at all
    Kewpie dolls and urine stalls
    Will be laughed at
    The way you're laughed at now

    Now, something meets boy, and something meets girl
    They both look the same
    They're overjoyed in this world
    Same hair, revolution
    Unisex, evolution
    Tomorrow who's gonna fuss

    And tomorrow Dick is wearing pants
    Tomorrow Janie's wearing a dress
    Future outcasts and they don't last
    And, today, the people dress the way that they please
    The way they tried to do in the last centuries

    And they love each other so
    Androgynous
    Closer than we know, love each other so
