Nun Betty On Trial

"In twenty four hours" after "dancing with the devil"
Begins the "lifting of my veil" you'll see I'm totally being level
"Silence is golden" was snickered when "my confession" was read
Head nun said, "look before you leap" but yet I ended up "in his bed"
Filled full of "tainted love" and "torment" that was "beyond belief"
Being a "sexy nun" I was "mystified", now full of "regret" and grief
If "Falsely imprisoned", I fear that I'll be "out of sight, out of mind"
I must "get it together" or else my "guardian angels" will leave me behind
"Choosing your fate" was taught in the convent, but I missed class that day
Swayed by a "roller coaster" of "sparkling kisses", that sadly led me astray
I'm "no longer asking" for these "false charms begone" on my behalf.
But for my other personality "Betty Boop", to be "freed", she is my other half.

    You have amassed many titles into a funny story. I have often wondered what runs through the mind of a sexy nun.
