Ooh oh
I’m telling everybody
about my brand new
designer purchase,
just right for the season
with a perfect fit,

gonna be tight for a month
but it feels so worth it.

Stepping out in my Sunday best,
skin tight feel with a shade to match,
chasers trace my silhouette
but they’ll never get
this name off a rack.

Ooh ooh, they whisper in my ear,
tugging at my sleeve so shear
“mmm, where did you get that style,
tailor made feminine wile?’

Can you guess what happens next?

A reservation at the north end’s best,
fresh handpicked ingredients,
and baby I would be your guest!
Carefully selected to make an entrance.

Sitting there in Sunday best,
eyes shaping our silhouette;
I trust they’ll see we’re nothing less
than a perfect match.

So if you’d have me
for an evening meal
without skipping out back
before you see the bill.

If you have any questions,
if you feel unequipped,
well you already know
what to serve me with-

a rice paper dress,
the perfect compliment.
