primp



I’m slipping on my dancing shoes
and deciding what to wear,
moving to my favorite song
and playing with my hair.

I'm singing to the mirror now
and pouting lip stick on,
making sure my cheeks are blushed
and all my freckles gone.

I’m mix and matching jewelry,
sprits perfume in the air and swirl.
I’ll dance to being young tonight,
Oh so lucky being a girl!

I’m slipping on my dancing shoes
and playing with my hair.
What fun would being woman be
without the primp and flair?
