Woke up this morning, it’s a brighter day
I looked in the mirror, saw a new face
Cause I got myself together, steppin’ in time
Everything’s better, this day is mine

How do I look? You look good!
How do I feel? You feel good!
How do I look? You look good!
You’re looking good and feeling gorgeous

Well, she walks real steady
In her high heel steppers
She got lots of style
She got lots of class

Yes I’m confident and self-assured
No holdin’ back, not like before
Cause I know what I want, can’t settle for less
Not tryin’ to flaunt it, I just want the best

I’ve been living in the shadows
A dark and lonely place
An empty room without a window
No sun upon my face

But I’m coming out
Into the light of day
Don’t stand in my way
I’ve made up my mind
It’s time for me to shine
This moment is all mine

I’m coming out of hiding
I’m coming out of hiding
I’m coming out

My time is now no time for tomorrow
No more livin’ in shame
And if I have to beg, steal or borrow
You will remember my name

Yes, I’m movin’ on
I’ve found respect for me
I see my destiny there
Yes, I will be strong
Got someone lovin’ me
And that someone is me

No more hiding—light of day
Not givin’ up—can’t keep me down
Not givin’ in—I’m comin’ out

Are you man enough?
Have I said enough?
Are you man enough?
One question

I’m not no Pollyanna
I got yo’ femme fatale
My body is so damn slammin’
Sometimes I scare myself (ta daow)

So if you wanna step to this
You’re gonna need a lotta cheese and
A little bit of confidence
And if you dare to answer this,
I’ll tell me all that I need to know
It is yes or no
It’s a simple question

Are you man enough to be my man?
Tell me what you got that I don’t have
I’m a W.O.M.A.N.—Outside and in, I ask you again
If you’re man enough to be my love
Then you know you gotta back it up
I’m a W.O.M.A.N.—from head to toe
Act like you know

I been through, I been through the drama
Don’t need to play those games
Still livin’ at home wit’ cha’ Mama
Don’t make me call no names (ta daow)

And if you wanna step to this
Ya betta be, the real thing
‘Cause I don’t need no young trainees
Yeah, if you dare to answer this
I’ll tell me all that I need to know
Is it yes or no, it’s a simple question

boy, it ain’t no time for you to be actin’ shy
I know you like what you see, and baby so do I

(pre-chorus)
If you want some of this, it’s ok
If you can’t handle the game, then don’t play
You ain’t never had it quite this way
This ain’t “the crying game”
Tell me are you man enough to take it
You ain’t gotta be scared, i know you want this
Since you already here, why don’t we do this
I’m gonna put it down, baby are you down?

(chorus)
Oops, gotcha callin’ me—I oops, gotcha wantin’ me
Yo girl is pissed at me, but it ain’t my fault you like it kinky
Oops, got him callin’ me—I oops, got him wantin’ me
Got two hatin’ me, but it ain’t my fault he like it freaky

Now it’s two o’clock and I’m ready to shake the spot
You said “Can you come wit me?”
So I said “why not?”
You said “its bout to be on”
‘Cause you see through my dress the red thong
But I gotta tell you somethin’
If you down then nothin’s wrong

(bridge)
Ooh I, know you wanna feel my body, kinky freaky -freaky kinky
Ooh you, didn’t know what you stepped into
Freaky kinky-now you needin’ me

(rap)
Don’t be callin’ me wit dis’ bullshit, i don’t need this
You can gone and gimme yo’ address, then we can do this
Say my man is over there hittin’ it, then you’s a dead bitch
You gone be missin’ in action

Do you know who I am, girl? I’m RuPaul
Don’t be mad cause I got it all
Including yo’ man balls, we was bouncin’ while you waitin’ at the mall
He told me I was he sexy ghetto chocolate Barbie doll

Hold up, wait a minute! What are you saying? Help me understand
Last time I checked I thought you was a man

I’m more than a man, just ask yo’ man-he knew what he was doing when
He unzipped his pants
You thought you were his one and only
He bone me and bone me ass kissin,’ penetratin’ the middle all on me, shit
He wanted me, fondling me, climbing up my sugar walls, he left his drawls on my canopy

I see you look at me and judge me with your eyes
Your words are meant to hurt and cut me down to size
Why must I explain to you? He loves me, I love him too
What on earth has that to do with you?

So you criticize. do you realize
I’m a person just like you?
Not gon’ run and hide, just cause you decide
You don’t like the things I do

All I know is love is love. in this world there ain’t enough
So why you wanna mess with us? When you know love is love
Really ain’t no difference, the why or what or who you’re with
So why you have to question it, don’t you know love is love

Open up your eyes and you will see that love is blind
Take the time to understand the way i feel inside
Like a river it must flow, love will choose the way it goes
In your heart of hearts I think you know

‘Cause if you’ve ever loved, then you know that love’s
Heaven sent down from above
What do you give a damn if he holds my hand
Or the love that we share between us?

(verse 1)
Ooh I kiss your shoulder—move on up against you
Feel my breath around you—that’s how I wanna hold ya
Ooh I taste your body sweat—though I ain’t been there yet
I know it’s something—we won’t soon forget, no

(b part)
This ain’t forever this is for now—hey baby
I really want to show you how
So tell me what’s the fuss all about—ooh

Don’t want to hear you say you love me
you know that that would be a lie
sex and love are two different things—ooh
Do I really have to tell you why?

(chorus)
It’s just a little in and out—ah ah ooh yea…
It’s just a little in and out—ah ah ooh yea yea baby

(verse 2)
I—do what I do so well—you’ll think I’m hot as hell
You’ll feel the fire we’re—gonna burn some rubber
Ooh attraction is so strong—just wanna turn you on
My motor’s runnin’ we’ll drive it all night long—just do it

(b part)
This ain’t forever this is for now
I really want to show you how
So tell me what’s the fuss all about—ooh

Don’t want to hear you say you love me

Do I really have to tell you why?

(bridge)
In the dark—I want to be your
me and you I’ll make it good for you
Ooh my baby—ooh my baby
We come and go
Come and go—hit the door—don’t nobody need to know
Ain’t nobody’s business—do do-do do do

(rap)
You got what I want-I got what you need
Wasting time to wine and dine me
I don’t want love and affection
I just need a love injection
Point, aim, shoot in my direction
I’m the trannie-mack taste good like baby-back
Slip-n-slide, up inside me-awl…down deep
I thought you knew—ain’t no other bitch like Ru

(repeat chorus)

I don’t need no man to make me understand
What I’m livin’ for is waiting on the dance floor
I don’t know ’bout you, but I know what to do
All I need is room to show you what I’m living for

Baby, Baby, Baby, Baby

WorkOut—in the mornin’
WorkOut—in the evenin’
WorkOut—take me higher

WorkOut—do it baby
WorkOut—make me crazy
WorkOut—lift me higher

Here’s the way it goes and baby you should know
All I’m livin for is waiting on the dance floor
Rhythm is my life, the music makes me high
Look into my eyes, it’ll show me what you’re living for

If you wanna party
And you wanna party
Do you wanna party with me?

Boy, I know you want some of this good lovin’ tonight
I look good taste so sweet , from my head down to my feet
If you liking what you see and you wanna get wit me
You should know (something you should know)
Before we can proceed
There’s more than what ‘cha see
Catch my flow

More woman than you’ll ever need
I’ll get it right until the job gets done
More man than you’ll ever be
You’ll get two lovers for the price of one

I can tell you still want me by the look in your eyes
going home with me even though you know the “tee”
satisfaction guaranteed to fulfill your fantasies
say you got twenty—three, I think we better leave

You’re the kinda man I like, some men are so up tight and they lie
When I know they wanna get freaky
Don’t want they’re friends to see
Them hookin’ up with me, so they creep

Don’t give a damn what people think of me
I am what I am
There’s so much more to me
Than what they can see

Tonight I feel like dancin’—I’m a hang out with my girls
So spare me your complaining—’Cause you’re livin’ up in my world
Where you get off tellin’ me—How I’m supposed to live
I ain’t your possession—Tell me what yo’ problem is?

Don’t think baby I’ll be a fool for you
Don’t think you can keep doing what you do to me
Boy I ain’t happy with the love you give

I need more, more
Baby I ain’t too hard to please, why can’t you give me what I need?
I need more, we’ve been through this before
I’m tired of you sayin’ the same ol’ thangs, shut it up and give me more

Don’t ask me where I’m going—and I won’t tell you where I’ve been
‘Cause what you’ve been givin’—that don’t even pay my rent
Remember when I told you lovin’ me could be intense
I need stimulation or you’re gonna get dismissed

Writer: Martin Gore / EMI Music Publishing (BMI)
Produced by: RuPaul Charles & Chris Rosa, Co-Producer: Tom Trujillo
Background Vocals: RuPaul Charles & Tom Trujillo
Skit: Shirley Q. Liquor

People are people so why should it be
You and I should get along so awfully

So we’re different colors
And we’re different creeds
And different people have different needs
It’s obvious you hate me
Though I’ve done nothing wrong
I never even met you
So what could I have done

I can’t understand
What makes a man
Hate another man
Help me understand

People are people so why should it be
You and I should get along so awfully

Help me understand

Now you’re punching and you’re kicking
And you’re shouting at me
I’m relying on your common decency
So far it hasn’t surfaced
But I’m sure it exists
It just takes a while to travel
From your head to your fist

13. My Love Sees No Color 3:41
Writers: RuPaul Charles & Tom Trujillo
RuPaul Charles Music (SESAC) / Trusongs Music
Produced by: RuPaul Charles & Joe Carrano, Co-Producer: Tom Trujillo
Background Vocals: Erin Duncan & Tom Trujillo

Black or white, tonight is right
Forget about whatever you’ve been told
Unlock the door—unlike before—open up a window to your soul
I get down with cocoa brown—sassy red I go to town
And behold—young or old—and if I can be so bold
To let you know—I dig mellow yellow
Catch my flow—and every color of the rainbow

It don’t matter whatever the skin you’re in
I need to feel electricity
The frequency—between you and me
My love sees no color

If a fool believes, just what he sees
Why can’t he see the similarities
He separates—discriminates
Gay or straight-whatever the case may be
Been around—north and south—Booragoon to Tennessee
Know by now—that beauty—is within and not skin deep
You should know—everybody’s got a soul
Every color of the rainbow

And time will reveal
That the way I feel
Is the way it was intended to be
Each and everybody’s free!

Background Vocals: Tom Trujillo

Stone cold city took a bite out of me
Love of my life said he had to leave
He said “I love you, but I hate it, it’s not for me
I’d rather take my chances back in Tennessee”

Hollywood U.S.A.
Hollywood U.S.A.

All alone in my room full of gloom
Livin’ on the dark side of the moon
A phone rings not a moment too soon
Is it you coming to my rescue?

Sacrificed our love to fulfill my dreams
But everything that glitters ain’t what it seems
I miss the lovin’ arms that once held me
I wanted fame but all i got was misery in

Hollywood U.S.A.
Hollywood U.S.A.

Packin’ up, givin’ in, I can’t win
Going back to start over again
Greyhound bus, gotta rush to my man
Will he still be my number one fan?

Sell your soul to be a star—workin’ in a bar
Change your name to play the game—it all remains the same
Sing your song you got the part—but don’t forget your heart
You’ll need it when you reach the top—and you’re alone in…

Hollywood U.S.A.
Hollywood U.S.A.

I lost my love in Hollywood
I’ll say goodbye to Hollywood

Background Vocals: RuPaul Charles & Tom Trujillo

There’s a cab outside
Should I tell him don’t bother?
I’ll say there’s been some mistake
And that he doesn’t have to wait
If it wasn’t so tragic, it would be funny
But I know that feelings have been hurt
And that you have the final word

October came early
Starting to look like rain
So what’s your hurry, baby
They’ll always be another plane

(chorus)
Give it one more try
Right here by my side
Leaving’s not the answer or the solution

Give it one more try
Let your conscience be your guide
Right here by my side no more confusion

Did you hear me say
that I really love you?
and that I always will
Nothing can change the way I feel
But I’m starting to question why I try to persuade you
Cause if you don’t look me in the eyes
How can I begin to change your mind?

I don’t wanna blow it by
standing in your way
You say that you’re going
There’s gotta be a better way

(bridge)
There was a time
When you said we’d always be together
Said it would be you and me forever
And there was a time
When we didn’t think about tomorrow
Don’t let our future end right here in sorrow

If this is goodbye, at least I know I really tried
I gave the best I had to offer you

Subtle as a river across the desert floor
Vying for attention, getting less and wanting more
Feelin’ just like Dorothy, the day she fell from Oz
I traveled all this way to find out who i really was, and…

Right or wrong—accept me as I am
Not at all—or do the best that ‘cha can
Right or wrong—accept me as I am
After all, I’m not your superman

Just below the surface, protected from the past
Broken by your point of view, I hid behind the mask
O was near surrender, trapped in secret pride
Worried that you needed more than what I had inside, but…

Right or wrong—accept me as I am
Not at all—or do the best that ‘cha can
Right or wrong—accept me as I am
After all, I’m not your superman

Bottom line, gonna be fine whatever you decide
Finally, I can be me no matter what you think
Yesterday, I was afraid to really show my face
It’s a new day and I said all that to say…
