There is much more to a woman Than what she can put on show There is more in the emporium Than there is in the shop window Like an expensive Champagne That a Lambrusco will out fizzle A woman displaying all her assets Is invariably all sausage and no sizzle It’s the homely types that most excite Hiding their figure neath frumpy dress Shy and modest to the outside world It’s the quiet ones who most impress Beneath sober dress they burn hottest Much hotter than the most brazen vamp And when you get them alone they turn From prim librarian into wanton tramp

This is so true, Paul, and it gave me a laugh. There are so many movies where the frumpy woman takes her hair out of the bun and suddenly is perceived as desireable. I had a part like this in a play. Enjoyed! Love, Carolyn
