Lyrics

PERNICIOUS HOMOSEXUAL

CHOIR: Jae. W. B.
And lo,
it was the third ringing of the bell,
the hour appointed for show and tell.

MRS. BOBO-Tym Moss:
WHO THIS WEEK LEARNED SOMETHING NEW?

LITTLE TONY- Carlos Kantor:
I LEARNED A WORD FROM TIME MAGAZINE. NO, TWO!

MRS. BOBO
THAT'S TERRIFIC TONY, PLEASE, EDUCATE US.

LITTLE TONY
SAY IT WITH ME NOW. THE WORD’S “PERNICIOUS.”
P-E-R-N-I-C-I-O-U-S

CLASS
P-E-R-N-I-C-I-O-U-S
NA NA NA NA NA NA

MRS. BOBO
AND WHAT IN THE WORLD DOES PERNICIOUS MEAN?

LITTLE TONY
EVIL, DANGEROUS, BAD, UNCLEAN

MRS. BOBO
SO USE IT FOR US, TONY, GET CONTEXTUAL!

LITTLE TONY
IT DESCRIBES MY OTHER WORD:
HOMOSEXUAL: H-O-M-O-S-E-X-U-A-L

CLASS
H-O-M-O-S-E-X-U-A-L
NA NA NA NA NA NA

MRS. BOBO
WAIT, GOTTA WAIT A MINUTE WAIT A MINUTE.
(THAT’S NOT A WORD FOR SHOW AND TELL).

CLASS
H-O-M-O-S-E-X-U-A-L

MRS. BOBO
WAIT A MINUTE WAIT A MINUTE

CLASS
PERNICIOUS HOMOSEXUAL

The chorus loops in the background as LITTLE TONY reads in front of the class, BOBO is caught between trying to stop LITTLE TONY and the class.

LITTLE TONY
“Today in the U.S., there are bars where all homosexuals are persona grata; ‘swish’ bars for the effeminates,’cuff-linky’ bars that cater to the college and junior-executive type; ‘fairy’ bars for ‘hair fairies’ with their careful coiffures; ‘TV’ bars, which cater not to television fans but to transvestites; San Francisco’s new ‘Topless Boys’ discotheques, featuring bare-chested entertainers; ‘leather’ bars for the tough-guy types with their fondness for chains and belts... ”

MRS. BOBO
Silence!

LITTLE TONY
(reprising ALIEN LOVE CHILD):
AiEEee! I’M A HOMOSEXUAL!

MRS. BOBO
You forgot “pernicious.”

little tony
But I’m not pernicious.

MRS. BOBO
Then what the devil are you?
