The Proper Ornaments
- 38 Views
Ba Ba Ba Ornaments of Life, ornaments of life There's your brand new car, sir, here's your hat and gloves There's your pretty wife, sir, whom you almost love There's your color TV set and your impressive pad There's your little baby girl you're almost glad you had Such a pretty dress, miss, such a graceful walk Bubbling femininity, authoritative talk There's your man he's prominent; treats you like a queen All your little secrets kept, your reputations clean The proper ornaments of life. Gotta have status Have a paid vacation, Have an intellectual education Ornaments of life Proper ornaments of life Fur coats, jewels and laces, bright red lipstick, big cars, money, tuxes and top hats Hide behind the mask of clothes and makeup: ornaments There's your brand new car, sir, here's your hat and gloves There's your pretty wife, sir, whom you almost love There's your color TV set and your impressive pad There's your little baby girl you're almost glad you had What's behind that countenance What's behind the lace, What is in your mind and heart That's hidden by your face Behind the ornaments in your life? Ba, ba, ba.
