Looks Decieve

Went to a dance to meet a girl
Thought I might give it a whirl
What a beauty tall and slim
Golden hair so wispy thin

Bright blue eyes and rosy cheeks
Stood right out amongst the freaks
Walked as if she were on air
To the other girls it was not fair

Then when I asked her for a dance
She said you haven’t got a chance
Stuck up was she so rich in look
But then perhaps she could not cook

Later met a girl so plain
Took her home on the last train
She could cook and she could love
Looks deceive my turtledove

Not good looking plump not fat
Long black hair in two big plaits
Full of love and friendly too
And for me she’ll surely do
