"Don't hate us if we make you smile
Or if we go the extra mile
To make someone feel better on a really shitty day
And if you're hearing what I'm saying
Then I want you to say I'M GAY!
(I'm gay! I'm gay!)
(I'm gay! I'm gay!)"
Bowling for Soup, "I'm Gay"

"I'm lookin' for sailors
Lookin' high and low
I'm lookin' for sailors
Where did they go?
I'm lookin' for sailors
Lookin' left and right
Where y'all keep the sailors
In the middle of the night?"
— "Lookin' For Sailors" (Shenmue parody)

"I have a gentle cock,
Croweth me day;
He doth me risen early
My matins for to say.
I have a gentle cock,
Comen he is of great;
His comb is of red coral,
His tail is of jet.
I have a gentle cock,
Comen he is of kind;
His comb is of red coral,
His tail is of inde.
His legges be of azure,
So gentle and so small;
His spurres are of silver white
Into the wortewale.
His eyen are of crystal,
Locked all in amber;
And every night he percheth him
In my lady's chamber."
Anonymous, 15th century
