Subject: RE: Lyr Req: I Gotta Find a Woman with a Chainsaw
Thanks for posting the lyrics to this song, Roger.

The first time I heard this song was in a concert by a very openly lesbian group in Portland, OR, called "Motherlode." They added a spring/summer verse & chorus about wanting to
"find a woman with a rototiller" and "all night long I would plow her field, yessirree."
Since most of the songs they sing are their own compositions, I sort of assumed it was one of their own and that it was originally intended to be a song about a woman looking for another woman for aid and comfort.   
When I later learned it was written and originally performed by a guy, it shifted the sense of the song in my mind a little -- actually making it funnier.

Obviously, it works either way.
