Your face when sleeping is sublime 
And then you open up your eyes

Then comes pancake factor number one
Eyeliner, rose hips and lip gloss, such fun
You're a slick little girl, you're a slick little girl
 Rouge and coloring, incense and ice
 Perfume and kisses, oh it's all so nice
You're a slick little girl, you're a slick little girl

Now we're coming out, out of our closets 
Out on the streets, yeah, we're coming out

When you're in bed it's so wonderful 
It'd be so nice to fall in love

 People say that it's impossible 

 Gowns lovely made out of lace
And all the things that you do to your face
You're a slick little girl, you're a slick little girl
Eyeliner, whitener then color the eyes
 Yellow and green, oh what a surprise 
You're a slick little girl, oh, you're such a slick little girl

Now we're coming out, out of our closets 
Out on the streets, yes, we're coming out
Yeah, we're coming out
