Gay Messiah  Rufus Wainwright

____________________
/ Rufus Wainwright / I think this song is a humorous response to the hype
/ Gay Messiah / of Rufus, where medias promoted him as the new Gay
/ Want Two / Messiah that would take over the title after his good
/___________________/ friend Elton John. Note how explicit his lyrics are in
the bridge! "I never jumped out of the closet, I was born
in the living room" - Rufus Wainwright

" No it will not be me
Rufus the Baptist I be
No I won't be the one
Baptized in cum
What will happen instead
Someone will demand my head
And then I will kneel down
And give it to them looking down "

2x Intro
Chorus:
just end on a straight G here
