I heard this recording and was able to get the chorus:

Says Mary to Malcolm
If you come then I'll come
Dressed up in nothing at all
So Mary and Malcolm
Came only in talcum
To the gay peoples fancy dressed ball

Does anyone have the verses? They are not among those on his website.

Subject: Lyr Add: THE GAY LIBERATION (Matt McGinn)
From: Jim Dixon
Date: 15 Aug 08 - 05:25 AM

Here's my transcription from the YouTube video:

THE GAY LIBERATION
Matt McGinn

CHORUS: Says Mary to Malcolm,
"If you come then I'll come
Dressed up in nothin' at all."
So Mary and Malcolm
Came only in talcum
To the gay people's fancy dress ball.

1. The gay liberation
All over the nation,
They had a fancy dress ball.
They sent invitations
To folk of all stations,
To Mary and Malc first of all. CHORUS

2. Now Malcolm and Mary
Were feeling cheery
With lots of whiskey and beer.
They then had some brandy,
Which made them feel dandy.
They thought the world had gone queer. CHORUS

3. With these spirits they rumbled,
Then staggered and stumbled.
Of glue someone gave them a sniff.
Then Malcolm, the braggart,
He snorted and staggered,
Nearly fell over a cliff. CHORUS

4. Of this situation
The gay liberation
Took advantage and gave them some grog.
With flesh they were smitten.
Now they dirty up Britain,
Polluting the place with pornog! CHORUS

[This song is on "Best of Matt McGinn, Vol. 2: The RCA International Years," Greentrax CD 253, 2003.]
