fancy ladies


photo from the The Library of Congress

Oh, the ladies like you and me
With our hats and pumps and lipstick
Oh, you, and me
Fancy, fancy
With our pretty little dresses
With darts and pleats
Swishing from here to there
We are fanciest
When we have grace and poise
And generous hearts
We are so beautiful then
That we know how to whoosh!
Oh, I do so like to be fancy!
And so do you!
My friends! We are fancy!
With our hair all done in a 21st century cut
Wearing a smart vintage hat, for flair!
You have a boa around your neck 
And I wear white kid gloves to be complicated
Your skirt is pencil thin
I am wearing a dress that bounces
When we swing our hips from side to side
The gentlemen look at us
I'll take the one with the hat

I do like people with hats. :P
