    I'm a little surprised Soderbergh isn't gay himself.

    Shirtless Matt adore,
    Twirl your bike helmet for bull,
    Whirl your red silk shirt,
    Poolside by moonlight, ballet,
    Lee key-dance Malaguena.

    Be my Maestro Lee,
    Passion more seen, soul more heard,
    Play Liberace,
    Piano's rosetta stone,
    Maestro music is that way.
