Go Bi 03:02
relationships with women - always seem to end in disaster some run home to ohio - others they die of cancer i do not know which is worse - but my friends have found an answer master my fears of the other gender and put in for a transfer my friends said go bi, go on and give it a try what's the worst that can happen (oh my!) you'll fall in love with a guy will my tension soften next to men - or will it just make me harder there's going to be things i will miss - i even liked buying you flowers i'll go back to women whenever i want - this is just a choice of pleasures the only difference is i got a new stick by which success is measured my friends said go bi, go on and give it a try what's the worst that can happen (oh my!) you'll fall in love with a guy can we sorta take it slow i don't know if you could know but i'm really kinda new at this well that was quick let me light some cigarettes you know this stuff really does taste thick wait you don't want to spoon or anything you don't want to pretend you're not tired or anything if i'm gone in the morning will it sting sorry stupid question i'll miss you too i'm thinking i told my ex girlfriend about my new plan she said it sounded hot she'd like to see my with another man oh baby i wish that i'd knew because guess what this change is true me and my boyfriend going to our old neighborhood bar going to get ourselves a booth next to you (i'm going to eat your french fries) my friends said go bi, go on and give it a try what's the worst that can happen (oh my!) you'll fall in love with a guy at 88% of the population (don't matter if they're all in china) why miss out on all of those opportunities for collaboration
