With different type from different lines

I'll tell the world about her
I'll mail the People and the Times
'Oo it'll be so scandalous
For the both of them

But mainly her'
She showed them her husband
He ordered a dozen
He thought they were fabulous

The one with the --
The two of the --

He sold her to Hefner
Who put her in Playboy
He gave her a centre-fold
I made a real blunder

She made it in movies
I made her a superstar
