“I was ah reading an article in a magazine
from France recently and ah they was talking
about David Allan Coe as a songwriter and ah.
They were saying how ah my song, Jack Daniel’s,
If You Please, that I wrote in 1956, ah really changed
country music back in the 60’s and then in the 70’s
you know and Divers Do It Deeper and Take This Job and
Shove It and different songs that I wrote. This guy
was saying that, he was wondering what David Allan Coe
would be writing by the year 2000 that would be
so different and unusual then whatever everyone
else was doing. So I call this a Song For The Year
2000.”

Jimmy’s in the closet, he thinks no one knows
He likes to wear makeup, and put on woman’s clothes
When he tries to be a man his feminine side shows
Jimmy’s in the closet, he thinks no one knows

[Chorus:]
But it takes all kinds of people, to make the world go round
I bent the whole world over, and that’s one thing that I found
Color does not matter, black, white, or red, or brown
It takes all kinds of people, to make the world go round
The world go round, the world go round
It takes all kinds of people, to make the world go round

Michael is taking hormone, treatments once again
Michael is black, Michael hates the color of his skin
Michael is getting whiter, then he’s ever been
Michael is taking hormone, treatments once again

[Chorus]

Stella was flat chested, she always stayed at home
Stella saved her money up, and bought some silicon
Now the boys all stare at Stella’s chest and they won’t leave her alone
Stella saved her money up just to buy some silicone

[Chorus]
