Vanity, Thy Name Is Woman

Vanity…Thy Name Is Woman! My house is on fire What shall I do I’ve seconds to decide My choices are few Shall I grab my money My precious jewels Or my brand new furry Bedside mules? This smoke is deadly I can hardly breathe I make a mental list Of what to bequeath But live or die I’ll wear my designer dress I’ve got to look great For all the press!
