He bought me the fur thing…
Five winters ago.
And the gown the following fall.
Then the necklace, the bag, the shoes and the hat.
That was late ’48. I recalllllllllllllllllll.
Then last night in his apartment.
He tried to remove them alllllllllllllllllll!
And I said, as I ran down the halllllllllllllllllll.
Take back your mink.
Take back your pearls.
What made you think…that I was one of those girls??? I’m screaming!
Take back the gown.
The shoes and the hat.
I may be down, but I’m not flat as all that.
