THE UNBEARABLE SHEERNESS OF BEING… 18 TODAY

Oh you pretty things.

She’s old enough to prove it now

But not enough to know better yet

That BFs from school aint always F

The sisterhood of the pink sash

Are midriffing down town tonight

To the renovated Belle and Lion

Granting right of passage

Since before Christmas at least

But this dance is as old as youth

As old as grandma sipping port

And had her day in the old Britannia

She knows this tripping cocktail crew

That sway and spike my shoe

Will never have this time again

The scratched heart will fade

So knock it down sweet Sibyls

Before life asks you what your plan is

And though you know it well

Keep it firmly to yourself, and

For this one night be invincible
