lyrics

GORGISSIMA:
Every goddess of the screen knows how to use her fists
Every rock god worth a ride has swivel in his hips
Every lovely pair of legs has SOMETHING in between -
And every show on Broadway needs at least one queen ...

Putting on a wig and heels is like taking off a skin
Painting up the outside to reveal the truth within
I'm stirring and evolving far beyond shy nature's plan
I'm waking up the butterfly who dreamt she was a man

GORGISSIMA, D, JONAH, GRUB, PLACID, PRICE, CARLA, CHRIS:
We are all born beautiful, we are all born proud
We are all born wild, we are all born screaming loud
It's a cruel world that tames us, that forces us to hide
But you can't hide forever when you're fabulous inside.

GORGISSIMA:
Tonight I rise like mercury, I rouge beyond the pale
I am as tempting as the slippery serpent swallowing its tail
The sequined asses shake to generate the heat and fire divine
I kick the alchemy sublime that turns lead blood to golden wine

So stay home, you boys and girls who are no more than boys and girls
It takes much more than plain old fashion sense to spin this stubborn world
You've got to know the feel of tight black leather, the tickle of an ostrich feather
How to give a heart attack - and how to take it back

Because there's gorgeous
And then there's GORGEOUS
There's SIMPLY gorgeous
There's FAB and gorgeous
There's UBER-gorgeous
There's FUCK ME gorgeous -
And then there's GORGISSIMA!

GORGISSIMA, D, JONAH, GRUB, PLACID, PRICE, CARLA, CHRIS:
We are all born beautiful, we are all born proud
We are all born wild, we are all born screaming loud
It's a cruel world that tames us, that forces us to hide
But you can't hide forever when you're fabulous inside.

GORGISSIMA:
Every goddess of the screen knows how to use her fists
Every rock god worth a ride has swivel in his hips
Every lovely pair of legs has SOMETHING in between -
And every show on Broadway needs at least one queen ...
And tonight, that queen is me!
Behold! Beware! Be mine!

Welcome... to Club Cibola!
