I Like Dick and Jane

(lyrics after the jump)

Laya Fisher’s  lyrics are explicit and reflect the openness she  feels about bisexuality. I had to go out and search for a song that spoke to bisexuality, which is a shame. Many songs talk about sex and become very popular as noted in sales and top 100 charts, however, these songs very rarely talk about non-heterosexual identities. If heterosexual sex lyrics can sell why can’t bisexual lyrics sell too? It wasn’t until Katy Perry’s, “I Kissed a Girl” that I can remember a notable connection to non-heterosexual relationships in the top 100 billboard charts. There have been many artists that produce songs that deal with bisexuality but they don’t typically get popular support. Not only that, but there isn’t easy access to retrieve these songs either. It’s important that pop culture and music in this case represent all aspects of society. Music begins shaping people at a very young age, and the lyrics are entwined in the lives of much of our generation now. Simply by making non “normal” sexual identities more visible in music can help shape the attitudes of a generation. To put it simply, there needs to be better representation of all identities to help fight the prejudices of minority groups.

Laya Fisher – I Like Dick and Jane 

(2001)

I’ve thought about it yes, I won’t deny it
but I think I’d have to be high to try it.
And I don’t think it’s just a trend,
I’m not trying to make a fashion statement
I’m curious…..

Chorus
When you have your pick
From the cream of the crop,
Do you like it on bottom,
Do you like it on top?
Today you want Dick,
Tomorrow you’ll have Jane
Sex is sex
We’re all one and the same

See Dick wiggle, See Jane dance.
She boogies in her underpants.
She learned to dance
From her former lover, Mary.
Mary said you wanna shake your hips,
Then start to lick your fingertips.
Women with women,
Men with men, ooh Scary!

Chorus

We all know that Dick will watch two girls
Get it on so he can get off
But men with men won’t get his juices… Flowing.
Jane she’s having none of that,
She believes in tit for tat
An open minded man will get her going

Chorus

Yeah, I think about your yin,
While playing with my yang,
But occasionally,
I’d like a change of scenery
Instead of the same old thang.

You’re not gay
But you’re not straight,
You try not to discriminate
Because you’re
Getting the best out of both worlds
You kiss the boys, you kiss the girls.
I envy you, your carefree ways,
Your attitude of come- what- may
I wish I had the guts to be like you.

I might change my mind.
