The Good Old Days

Give me blood red lipstick,

Pearl earrings,

White cuffs against navy,

Give me a history I want.

 

Give me neck scarves of silk,

A brooch lined with fox fur,

Decadence, decay, drama

Darling, give me a look I can flaunt.

 

Give me the 50s, even the 40s,

Anything but this decade,

Give me mouths that love language,

A grace I don't own.

 

Give me hair pins and stockings,

Fresh gloves fit for a lady,

A splash of skin above the hemline,

Give me a time I can breathe in.

 

Give me an age of beauty, light,

Give me the days when an ankle could excite,

Give me something to rebel against,

Give me back the good old days.
