I ain’t a lady

….

...What do you      see  when         you   look 
     my way?   No;   you don't      have to tell 
       me; you  see   a     lady  who     looks  
         decent  for   her   age;   who  walks  
           with  confidence    and   sway;  a 
           lady with a passably  pretty  face 
         whose   sexy   shape    has    been  
       retained  well  beyond  its  sell-by 
      date;   a   lady   who    may     be 
        desperate   to   play   the  love 
          game:    hungry   enough   for 
            you to take. Well, get this, 
            mate; I ain't a lady; I'm a 
            woman  with a past, a life,
             a woman  with  riddles to 
              unwind;   a  woman  with 
              many   a   hidden  corner.
             get your  eyes  tested,  and 
           buy a better pair of specs, then 
          maybe you'll see inside my  frayed 
         border,  but   I   can't   guarantee
        that   you'll   like  what  you  find

what do you see
when you look my way?
no, you don’t have to tell me
you see a lady who looks decent for her age
who walks with confidence and sway
a lady with a passably pretty face
whose sexy shape
has been retained beyond its sell-by date
a lady who may be desperate
to play the love game

hungry enough
for you to take

well get this, mate
I ain’t a lady
I’m a woman with a past, a life,
a woman with riddles to unwind
a woman with many a hidden corner
get your eyes tested
and buy a decent pair of specs
then maybe you’ll see inside
my frayed border
but I can’t guarantee
that you’ll like what you find
