IT’S A FORTRESS

take me out for a treat, because I’m useless with rings
long gloved accessory- just a cover for stitches
but it’s a fortress, the one they talk about
and the ribbons are long, so you can tie them down
it’s the necktie, that they scream about

you cannot crow like the others ‘cause they’re calling you and you saw
you cannot crow, for the like, for the like

undress me, don’t take it off
I’ve got thorns there, under my stockings
stockings, roll them down
I’ve got a secret, bend down,
but it’s a fortress, the one they talk about
and the ribbons are long, so you can tie them down
it’s the necktie, that they scream about

you cannot crow like the others ‘cause they’re calling you and you saw
you cannot crow, for the like, for the like

go sore, go sorer
