My Name Is Not Steven

In the process of hearing all those classic Whitney  Houston songs on the radio in the wake of her untimely death and her upcoming funeral tomorrow, heard one of my favorites that inspired me to rewrite it and put a transgender twist to it.

So y’all know the drill.   Fire up the iPods and sing along with Moni’s remixed lyrics.

My Name Is Not Steven

Sung to the tune of ‘My Name Is Not Susan’ by Whitney Houston

One day not long ago

I had SRS

I transitioned as you know

Born male, that’s part of my past 

From my point of view

Thankful that it didn’t last

Cisgender folks you know I can’t believe

Your tongue would slip that easily

I know you think I oughta let it be

But get it right, next time

Stop misgendering me 

[Chorus:]

My name is not Steven

So watch what you say

If you’re still dissing me

Then be on your way

Don’t wanna hear about Steven

Stop calling me he

Show some respect for my femininity

My name is not Steven 

(No, no, no, no, no — get it, get it, get it right)

While I was running the streets

Hanging with the rainbow peeps

Heard you calling my old name

Then you grinned in my face 

I froze in place

Our friendship won’t be the same

Cisgender folks you know I never knew

You’d disrespect my humanity 

I know you think I oughta let it go

But get it right next time

I said good-bye to the boy

My name is not Steven

So watch what you say

If you’re still dissing me

Then be on your way

Don’t wanna hear about Steven

Stop calling me he

Show some respect for my femininity

My name is not Steven 

My name is not Steven

So watch what you say

If you’re still dissing me

Then be on your way

Don’t wanna hear about Steven

Stop calling me he

Show some respect for my femininity

My name is not Steven 

I never wanted to be a boy do you get that homey?

I transitioned to be me if you think it sounds real corny

So if you call yourself my friend,

I’m a dame – don’t forgot my name

Well, anyway

My name is not Steven

So watch what you say

If you’re still dissing me

Then be on your way

Don’t wanna hear about Steven

Stop calling me he

Show some respect for my femininity

My name is not Steven 

Don’t want to hear about Steven

My name at Steven (X3)

My name ain’t Steven

My name ain’t Steven

My name ain’t Steven

Ya better get it right!

  My name ain’t Steven

 
My name ain’t Steven

 
My name ain’t Steven

 
Ya better get it right!
