1
A lady like myself
Prefers the finest of things.
Like perfumes and makeup,
Necklaces and rings.
We wear the richest of silk,
And the most delicate of lace.

Embroidered the feet to neck,
Makeup on my face.
My crinoline is wide,
And my corest is tight.
I look as pretty as I can be,
With my smile shining bright.

Us ladies are made this way
To look pretty for the many men.
We dress up, go to balls,
And then do it all over again.
Sometimes I'm sick of this life,
It is not enough for me.
But being gentle, pretty, perfect,
Is all a lady can be.
