- Alternative Song for Miriam
Miriam, I suspect you are a lesbian dancing with your own kind in wild celebration of miraculous life deep voice expressing thanks that you are what you are through an ecstatic song most men misunderstand.
Sing on, Miriam, danceeven though your feet hurt and your boobs bounce around until the Messiah comes calling at your tent disguised as a woman.
