Underneath That Smile











Since everybody wants to know
What lies beneath my smile
I'm finally going to tell you
What's been secret for a while

The eggs I had for breakfast
They have given me some gas
I know it will be toxic
So I'm hoping it might pass

My underwire push-up bra
To make my chest seem higher
Is sticking in my armpit
And it feels like it's on fire

I'm wearing a new corset
With a scratchy woolen sash
I think that I'm allergic
'Cause it's giving me a rash

I dressed in such a hurry
There's a layer I may have missed
And now I have a wedgie
Got my knickers in a twist

The fastenings on my undies
Have got such an awkward catch
They're tickly and itchy
How I'd love to take a scratch

And there is also one more thing
I think that you should know
I have a tiny bladder
And I really have to go

What's private is now public
You now know what lies beneath
And each and every reason that
I smile and grit my teeth
