Lay of the Lady LipstickIt's a yum advertisement, a rum enticement,
Win a trip on the good ship, the Lady Lipstick.
He dare not blow skew the tidy tableau
With his tremble inland of her steady hand.
He would ride with the others, his victim brothers,
On sweet loop from prow of her cupid's bow,
But should he miss and she ruckle her kiss,
It's all blue over down, it's all down, it's to drown
All alone in the blue, it's to drown within view
Of her red and red lure, cruel upon the azure.
It's a yum advertisement, a rum enticement
But perhaps he should shrug her and play the land lubber,
Admire from shore the good ship, the Lady Lipstick.
