Adequate etiquette

We’re not supposed to say that you can’t do a thing today because they say, that it’s not
politically correct
I do it anyway and every which or other way just to stick two
fingers to the man who thinks that he can
tell me how
to go about the business of my life.

I am moderate in my views but speak some language
that you might not choose to hear,
get over it,

we’re not all ‘peter perfect’ and inclined to be
there are times you have to colour in
by going outside the lines.

but we love
we love
we love and they can’t
take that thing away
can’t tell me
who I must love
in whatever way
I choose.
