Avenue Q (Original Broadway Cast Recording), 2m 30sec
Aah, an afternoon alone with my favorite book, "Broadway
Musicals of the 1940s." No roommate to bother me.
How could it get any better than this?
Oh, hi Rod!
Hey Rod, you'll never guess what happened to me on the subway this morning.
This guy was smiling at me and talking to me --
That's very interesting.
He was being real friendly, and I think he was coming on to me.
I think he might've thought I was gay!
Ahem, so, uh, why are you telling me this? Why should I care?
I don't care. What did you have for lunch today?
Oh, you don't have to get all defensive about it, Rod...
I'm NOT getting defensive! What do I care about some
Gay guy you met, okay? I'm trying to read.
Oh, I didn't mean anything by it, Rod. I just think it's
Something we should be able to talk about.
I don't want to talk about it, Nicky! This conversation is over!!!
Well, okay, but just so you know --
If you were gay
That'd be okay.
I mean 'cause, hey,
I'd like you anyway.
Because you see,
If it were me,
I would feel free
To say that I was gay
(but I'm not gay).
Nicky, please! I am trying to read...
If you were queer
I'd still be here,
Year after year
Because you're dear
And I know that you
Would accept me too,
If I told you today
"Hey! Guess what,
(But I'm not gay)
Just being with you.
So what should it
Matter to me
What you do in bed
Nicky, that's GROSS!
No, it's not!
If you were gay
I'd shout hooray!
And here I'd stay,
But I wouldn't get
In your way.
You can count on me
To always be
Beside you every day,
To tell you it's okay,
You were just born
And, as they say,
It's in your DNA,
But I'm not gay!
If you WERE gay.
