Leviticus (Faggot)
music and lyric by Me’shell Ndegéocello

Faggot better run, learn to run, ’cause daddy’s home
His sweet lil’ boy just a little too sweet
Every night the man showed the faggot what a real man should be
The man and the faggot will never see
For so many can’t even perceive a real man
Tell me

Not that the faggot didn’t find a woman fine and beautiful
He admired desired their desires
He wanted love from strong hands
The faggot wanted the love of a man

His mother would pray
Save him, save him, save him from this life
His mother would pray
Save him, save him, save him from this life

Go to church, boy
Faggot you’re just a prisoner of your own perverted world
No picket fence acting like a bitch, that’s all he sees
Ain’t that what faggot means
No love dreams
Only the favors sweet Michael performed for money to eat
‘Cause the man kicked the faggot out the house at 16
Amen, mother let it be

Before long he was crowned QUEEN for all the world to see
Bloody body face down
All hail the queen
The wages of sin are surely death
That’s what mama used to say

His mother would pray
Save him, save him, save him from this life
His mother would pray
Save him
Save him from this life
Save him
Save me from this life

His mother would pray
Save him, save him, save him from this life
His mother would pray…
