A butler asks, will Madam be having her morning coffee
If you would be so good as to lift me out of my bed to
the veranda I would be more than willing to imbibe coffee
Shall I ask the Master to join you for coffee alfresco,
But my nightgown's so sheer he might see my pubic delta
And being a woman of wealth I have the loins of a
While you, being but a servant, have the loins of a
child's teddy bear.
Yes, have the Master join the alfresco
He might just as well be informed of my pubic delta,
it's not a state secret.
Besides, because of his wealth he
bears the organ of a bull, while you, being but a lowly
servant, have the loins of a toy.
Very good, Madam .
