Paint Your Nails
Paint your finger and toe nails.
So pretty, it makes you feel.
So completely womanized. Working
Or playing, saying I'm not lurking
In the world of being plain Jane.
Feeling good about myself it makes,
Just as it does, putting on my face.
Grandmothers did just this before me.
Pretty women, themselves being free.
