Lyrics

I hate you
Because I don't agree with what you do
Because you never seem to have a clue what's wrong or right

You disgust me
Writing with your left hand like it's right
I think you're gonna start a fight tonight, if you're not careful

    And there is only one of 10 of us that's broken
    Why can't you just use your right hand, like a normal Joe can

I hate you
Every time you're picking up a pen
You're only trying to get the childeren to copycat you

You're a sinner
The Bible spells it out in black and white
Why you think we read it from left to right, is that an accident?
    
    Cuz the scribes who wrote the bible saw the link 
    The never would have let their hands get smeared up in the ink

        Some say it's genetics that makes you who you are
        They say you haven't got a choice
        But you can learn to use the chosen hand
        Sloppy writing's not the end

I hate you
You always wanna rub it in my face
All you lefties never seem to know that there's a time and there's a place

I hate you
Equal rights we'll never part
Why you think we called 'em "rights" to start with, they ain't for you

I hate you

I just heard your song on the Cast-On podcast (http://www.cast-on.com), and I have to say this is AWESOME. *lol* I'm "one of them", but I love this song. ;) I can't wait to hear more of your music, which I'm about to do! :)

I just heard this song on Cast-On... which frequently has awesome songs but this is the first one I immediately HAD to find. So thanks for making it available... smooches!

I guess you don't like me. :_( Actually, I'm ambidextrous, but I favor my left. I guess I just like my hand all inky. Don't knock it til' you've tried it... >;)

It's not really about being left-handed...is it?
Lui (anon) Back · 5 years, 4 months ago
I think so....

Homosexuality, I think.

Oddriq (anon) Back · 4 years, 4 months ago
It's satire. First, assume that this is really about left-handedness (sinistrality - it even sounds wrong!). Now, how absurd do all the arguments/comments in the song sound? Next, assume it's actually referring to homosexuality. Do the arguments seem less absurd than they did when it was about left-handedness? Not really, and yet I've heard comments very similar to what's in this song. While the inspiration for the song may have been attitudes about homosexuality, I see it as a broader critique on the tendency to fear and loath whatever is different, even when it has no negative impact on any other individual.
Sowz37 (anon) Back · 4 years, 4 months ago

Oh, I understand that it is satire. I did not mean to imply that it is a critique against homosexuality, but rather against anti-homosexuality. But you may very well be right, in that this is only one of the topics it covers.

Ironically, most of the Bible is written from right to left...
Lucas (anon) · 1 year, 3 months ago
This is awesome. I understood the song. Thank you very much for this! Really!
