Is my skirt short enough?
Is the depth of my dress okay?
Is my naive neckline plunging just fine?
Will my high heels make you stay?

Tell me honestly, am I hot now darling?
I have thrown my clumsy clothes away.
My lips are a shade of bright ruby red,
The kohl in my eyes darker than the day.

Will you love me if I ask you?
Will you dance now in the rain?
Beneath  the laces and lashes, my love
Will you look at my face again?
