Let me tell you from the start. The magic in my heart about being a trans girl. When I’m feminine I feel somehow my world’s more real, by being a trans girl. As I’m walking down the street, seems everyone I meet becomes a friend who smiles. And when people speak we’re young girls and boys The world’s our playground brimming with lots of joy. Let’s talk deeply you and me, ’cause someone who you love’s a trans girl like me. Talking part: Let me tell you from the start The magic in my heart about being a trans girl. When I’m feminine I feel somehow my world’s more real, by being a trans girl. And when people speak we’re young girls and boys The world’s our playground brimming with lots of joy. Last part – singing bigger When I’m feminine I feel somehow my world’s more real, by being a trans girl. One day you’ll meet a dream girl from above Who turns out to be a cute trans girl like me Let’s talk deeply you and me, and you will get to see why I’m a trans girl For more info and booking, contact Fran Sisco via FrancisSisco@aol.com or via http://www.TransEntertainers.com
