Androgynous
The Replacements Lyrics


Here comes Dick, he's wearing a skirt
Here comes Jane, you know she's sporting a chain
Same hair, revolution
Same build, evolution
Tomorrow who's gonna fuss

And they love each other so
Androgynous
Closer than you know, love each other so
Androgynous

Don't get him wrong and don't get him mad
He might be a father, but he sure ain't a dad
And she don't need advice that'll center her
She's happy with the way she looks
She's happy with her gender

And they love each other so
Androgynous
Closer than you know, love each other so
Androgynous

Mirror image, see no damage
See no evil at all
Kewpie dolls and urine stalls
Will be laughed at
The way you're laughed at now

Now, something meets boy, and something meets girl
They both look the same
They're overjoyed in this world
Same hair, revolution
Unisex, evolution
Tomorrow who's gonna fuss

And tomorrow Dick is wearing pants
Tomorrow Janie's wearing a dress
Future outcasts and they don't last
And, today, the people dress the way that they please
The way they tried to do in the last centuries

And they love each other so
Androgynous
Closer than we know, love each other so
Androgynous

Here come Dick, he's wearing a skirt
Here comes Jane, you know she's sporting a chain
Same hair, revolution
Same build, evolution
Tomorrow who's gonna fuss

And they love each other so
Androgynous
Closer than you know, love each other so
Androgynous

Don't get him wrong and don't get him mad
He might be a father, but he sure ain't a dad
And she don't need advice that'll center her
She's happy with the way she looks
She's happy with her gender

And they love each other so
Androgynous
Closer than you know, love each other so
Androgynous

Mirror image, see no damage
See no evil at all
Kewpie dolls and urine stalls
Will be laughed at
The way you're laughed at now

Now, something meets boy, and something meets girl
They both look the same
They're overjoyed in this world
Same hair, revolution
Unisex, evolution
Tomorrow who's gonna fuss

And tomorrow Dick is wearing pants
Tomorrow Janie's wearing a dress
Future outcasts and they don't last
And, today, the people dress the way that they please
The way they tried to do in the last centuries

And they love each other so
Androgynous
Closer than we know, love each other so
Androgynous

This song, of all the tunes on "Let It Be", means the most to me: it's the most articulate expression of: "Forget what other people think -- be yourself." So I just had to put Westerberg's lyrics here.
--------------------------------------------------------


Here comes Dick: he's wearing a skirt
Here comes Jane: Y'know she's sporting a chain
Same hair revolution
Same build evolution
Tomorrow who's gonna fuss?

[Chorus:]
And they love each other so
Androgynous
Closer than you know, love each other so
Androgynous

Don't get him wrong and don't get him mad
He might be a father, but he sure ain't a dad
And she don't need advice that'll center her
She's happy with the way she looks
She's happy with her gender

[Chorus]

Mirror image: see no damage
See no evil at all
Kewpie dolls and urine stalls
Will be laughed at
The way you're laughed at now

Now something meets Boy and something meets Girl
They both look the same
They're overjoyed in this world
Same hair revolution
Unisex evolution
Tomorrow who's gonna fuss?
And tomorrow Dick is wearing pants!
And tomorrow Janie's wearing a dress!
Future outcasts and they don't last
And today the people dress the way that they please
The way they tried to do in the last centuries

[Chorus]

as a nonbinary trans person this song means a whole fucking lot to me. When I sing it I more often than not get emotional. great song.

Gwen

@john bircham This song isn't about "SJWs" or whatever, its about being comfy with who you are. If you for some reason think this song's an "antidote" to that, you gotta read deeper into your own problems.

@john bircham literally what

john bircham

I loved this song in the eighties , androgynous sounds so much better than non binary. The current cancel culture has however destroyed my sympathy. I searched for this song as a kind of antidote to the hostility I feel against the social justice warriors.

How the hell was Westerburg so ahead in 1984?!?! This is more relevant then it ever was. Bless you Paul!

I KNOW I’M LISTENING AND I’M LIKE THIS SOUNDS OLD FOR A LATE 90s PIECE AND I LOOK AT IT’S BEFORE MID 80s LIKE WTAF

Sonny Lopez

@mathompson53187 they sucked after they kicked him out.

mathompson53187

​@Sonny Lopez Yeah, I've seen where he plays in dresses kind of for laughs as much as anything -- I was likely wrong with the original reply, if it was good enough for the New York Dolls and all. Having said this Bob could have done almost anything for almost any reason in those days; the more absurd the better probably, I'm not sure he was particularly stable or consistent in his thought process.
