about

This is simply a song about a transgender man who was sold to a circus by his family.....

Very timely.

lyrics

AMANDA B

Amanda B she always wanted to see her shame in lights
Amanda B she never could divide up his double life, yeah
She had the kind of things that dirty boys would line up to see
All this testosterone only makes it hard for Amanda B

Abandoned by a bowery boy and a mother with a gypsy soul
No one could hold her and so they sold her for a song
Now she’s gone

You won’t forget her says the barker you can take it from me
And all this barking only makes it "ruff" for Amanda B

Standing in the side show shadow
Like a peach in a banana boat
No one to hold her
Shoulders are colder when you're wrong
Now she's on

And flattery is all she needs to share the secret below
Hermaphrodite is the name that’s on the sign at the show
Here she goes....

(Big Band interlude...)

You could undress her with your mind but you would never quite see
(Oh no! Oh yeah!)
The subtle differences that make it hard for Amanda B

Sit back and let me tell you 'bout the birds and Amanda B
