Hedwig and the Angry Inch

And the lights go down
across the trailer park

I get down
I feel had
Feel on the verge
of going mad

Then it's time
to punch the clock

I put on some makeup
Turn on the tape deck
And put the wig
back on my head

Suddenly I'm Miss Midwest
Midnight checkout queen

Until I head home
And I put myself
to bed

I look back
on where I'm from

Look at the woman
I've become

And the strangest things
seem suddenly routine

I look up from my vermouth
on the rocks

A gift-wrapped wig
still in the box

Of towering Velveteen
I put on some makeup
Some Lavern Baker
I'm pulling the wig
down from the shelf

Suddenly I'm
Miss Beehive 1963

Until I wake up
and I turn back to myself

Some girls
they got natural ease
