and classy high heels
and black and white wingtips
Music and dancing
Twirling skirts and laughing groups
not found now
But I don't think it's because it doesn't exist
It's because girls have forgotten to act with grace
And boy to open the doors
It's because boys forgot to walk closer to cars
and girls to lower their voices
It's because we don't act with class
Or pretend we're worth respect
We are simply loud and demanding
Demanding and who wants to respect that?
Who will open her door?
Who will encourage him?
We've lost all our class
It's a sad, sad thing
but every time you slouch
and demonize yourself
you're not being funny
and you're not even being abnormal, anymore. . . .
you're just being
Class would be a beautiful thing to retain
and sophistication is so rare now
Sorry. Just me thinking out loud, listening to old Christmas music, like Silver Bells and Let It Snow.
I miss when it was normal to be dignified.
