Short Skirts and T-shirts

Smile, smile, that's all there is to do.
Open your mouth like a flower bud
Display your row of pearly whites.

If you're stressed, depressed,
Doesn't matter,
You have to keep smiling.

Wear your skirts short
And your t-shirts cut low-
Don't you want to be appreciated?

Break into the lipstick,
The eyeliner, eyeshadow.
Wear the diamond earrings

To school. It's alright.
You may be failing in geometry
But as long as you're looking pretty

You're succeeding in life.
Smile, make small talk,
Shut the book.

And above all,
Don't let others
Read your face like one.

The End
