When all around you is beautiful and desirable, what if you aren't?


Well I'm the luckiest girl alive.
One of the 24 or 25
Girls especially selected
To crowd back stage and get inspected.

Behind that door when I get thru
He'll see a heart so pure and true
I'll step lightly to his arms
And He'll succumb to all my charms

Well, what the hell is wrong with me?
Did you see something you now don't see?
Up close I don't seem such a prize
Without the bright lights dazzling your eyes?

Plucked from the buffet but never tasted
Am I too wall eyed? Am I too thick waisted?
Makes me sad. I love him so
But now I'm rudely told to go!

She goes shoulders hunched and eyes cast down
No money for the underground
Through bombed out blocks she walks no stopping
Past shuttered shops nobody's shopping

All the kids love rock and roll
It fills the void and ???? the hole
With plenty for austerity
And beauty for brutality.
