I decided to poke some fun at a sacred cow. The song “Deep In The Heart Of Texas” is played at sporting events and all kinds of other places around the Lone Star State. As such, I think the anti-litter slogan “Don’t Mess With Texas” also kind of applies to this song, but I couldn’t resist.
While I love Texas and am proud to call it my home, our elected representatives are generally speaking not predisposed to care a lick about those of us in the LGBT and especially Transgender community. That goes for some of the largest churches as well. In certain parts of our fair state, it can be disconcerting to just walk the street as we don’t have many legal protections at our disposal.
This became my inspiration for screwing with the song. Y’all know how it goes right?
“The stars at night, are big and bright (clap clap clap clap) Deep In the heart of Texas …etc. Well keep the same music to these lyrics:
“UNLESS YOU’RE TRANS IN TEXAS”
The jobs abound, all around – Unless you’re Trans in Texas
Justice rings for all God’s things - Unless you’re Trans in Texas
Safely drive your car, near or far – Unless you’re Trans in Texas
You can live your life as man and wife - Unless you’re Trans in Texas
Your insurance will, cover doctor’s bills – Unless you’re Trans in Texas
Rent a home no matter where you roam – Unless you’re Trans in Texas
You can walk the street and not get beat - Unless you’re Trans in Texas
You can show your pride, both far and wide – Unless you’re Trans in Texas
Rick Perry’s here, so have no fear – Unless you’re Trans in Texas
Churches love their flock around the clock - Unless you’re Trans in Texas
Thank you. Thank you very much. Be sure and tip your waitress!
