    Cabaret Songs: Crossing Over

    text by Rodney Sharman



    When you said that you liked my stockin's,

    I thought you meant that you liked them on me.

    When you said my lipstick was pretty,

    I didn't know, it didn't show you were longing to be...


    Dolled-up in my makeup,

    Dressed-up in my clothes,

    Stretchin' my panties and my pantyhose.



    Now that you're gone I won't settle for less

    Than a well-muscled Irishman wearing my dress...



    Oh, what are you wearin', my cross-dressin' love?

    Do they have teddies in heaven above?

    Does the Lord Jesus look just as we're told?

    In open-toed sandals and long flowing robes?



    With time you grew older and bolder.

    The boys in the shop came to know

    The days that your eyes were a-smoulder

    Were days somethin' lacy was under your clothes.



    One night at the site in your pick-up

    (In) Stilettos instead of steel-toes

    Your heels got stuck and you totalled your truck

    The flames rose to heaven, and carried your soul.



    Oh, what are you wearin', my cross-dressing love?

    Do they have teddies in heaven above?

    Does the Lord Jesus look just as we're told?

    In open-toed sandals and long, flowing robes?
