[d]                 [g]                          [d]

This land is dyke land, this land is fag land,

          [a7]                        [d]

From San Francisco to Fire Island,

                    [g]                        [d]

From the Russian River to the Greenwich Village

 [a7]                        [d]

This land is queer for you and me.

We go to DC and some are PC
And some wear PVC and are radickal faeries,
And all the Marys in the military:
This land is queer for you and me

Drag kings march proudly, our baskets bulging
We see perpetual sisters indulging,
And all the high-femmes, they are divulging

This land is queer for you and me

Chorus

We used to have the kind of love that dare not speak,
Now we see yuppie dykes on the cover of newsweek
The L word's Shane makes the straight girls knees weak
This land is queer for you and me

We summer in P-town and down in Miami
Even Peoria has 'friends of dorothy'
And don't forget The Intersex Society

This land is queer for you and me

L, G, B, T. & i, the acronym grows so long
And PFLAG blossoms under Ellen’s spokes-mom
& even Hilary will come out before long

This land is queer for you and me

Chorus

This land is bear land, this land is drag land,
From good old Weho to the Chelsea Piers, man,
From the womyns festivaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaal

..............................................all the way to camp trans
One day i hope to live to see: this land is ALL-inclusively,
Gender-friendly n phobia-free & she & she & you & me,
Can actually marry legally then this land will finally truly be,
Home of the brave/ land of the free

—this land is queer for you and me!
