The lyrics go:

“Well, to be honest I’m a hetero guy

but I really try to be a good ally

and it ain’t no secret and I’ll tell you why

it’s cause I love my wife and my wife is bi

Bi wife energy, he has bi wife energy!

Now sometimes people assume I’m queer

and I have to say hey, just a straight guy here

and I get it a lot, I don’t mean to be cruel,

it’s just that my wife is a bisexual”
