With you natural beauty and your long blonde locks,
you first gained notoriety on the Ivory Snow box.
Yes, you were the young mother and not the baby.
In such a strange surrounding you would soon be.
Marilyn, we saw you in an X-rated movie.
After landing a small role in “The Owl and the *****cat”,
mainstream entertainment was not where it was at.
Working as a waitress and stripper left you bored.
It seemed all your work gave you no reward.
You finally got a break in “Behind the Green Door”.
You became a celebrity millions would adore.
We would be in an erotic vicarious journey
in just about every porno flick we would see.
Yes, you became the sensual toast of the town.
Your age did not seem to slow you down.
Sadly, you left this world just recently.
Marilyn, you will always be number one with me.
