I'll Pass
(With apologies to Pat Taylor)
I eat my Wheaties, watch my
glands.
Dirty dishwater never touches my
! hands.
I’m just as careful as I can be,
] And still nobody takes a pass at me.
j I’ve been wailing that phrase since
I don’t know when,
But I have a chance now that won’t
come again
Until I’m too old to appreciate
men.
Oh, why won’t somebody make a
pass at me.
Today’s the day girls get ’em if
they can.
Believe me Sister, I’m out to get a
man,
If only so that I can stop this plea,
Oh ,why won’t somebody make a
pass at me. J.W.S.
