They dressed her up in lace and curls
All the things she wasn’t
Taught her life was not much more
Than looking for a husband
With a straight face
With a straight face

Friends are playing Barbie dolls
She doesn’t feel so normal
Picture from the senior prom
The gown was big and formal
With a straight face
With a straight face

The family name, you ought to be ashamed
Your father yelled, your mother prayed
They mean well, they’re tryin’ to fix your soul
Or they’re trying to get you laid
Or they just roll their eyes
Like you’re not something God made
With a straight face

The neighbors called him “mamma’s boy”
He wants to be a dancer
Questions they don’t want to ask
He’s afraid to answer
With a straight face
With a straight face

His friends are playing Superman
He pretends he’s normal
Picture from the senior prom
The smile was big and formal
With a straight face
With a straight face

The family name, you ought to be ashamed
Your father yelled, your mother prayed
They mean well, they’re tryin’ to fix your soul
Or they’re trying to get you laid
Or they just roll their eyes
Like you’re not something God made
With a straight face
