Pink Feathers


Oh, the feeling of discomfort

When your pantyhose roll down . . .!

They start to slip and crawl and slide . . .

All you can do is frown.

You stand up very, very straight,

And you never dare to sneeze

‘cause those slippin’, slidin’ pantyhose

Will crawl down to your knees!

You can tug a bit and shuffle

And do a little dance,

But nothing really helps your case—

Your life is left to chance.

It had to be a fellow

Who invented pantyhose

He’s raking in a fortune—

I’d like to wring his nose!
