Who wants her now?
A queue from a crowd
Winds around several city blocks
She’s been interred by her own words
And her suitors panting speech is mostly slurred
Baby, you are hard to believe

And it’s all in the way she loves to share
All the misery that she cannot bear
To relate to her gladhanded affairs

The high life is hers
It just occurs every time she opens up her mouth
And when she does, it is because
Her elephantine pride has spied a mouse
Baby, you are hard to believe
