Lyrics A Little More Mascara

Once again
I'm a little depressed by the tired old face that I see
Once again it is time to be someone who's anyone other than me
With the rare combination of girlish excitement and manly restraint
I position my precious assortment of pencils and powders and paint
So whenever I feel that my place in the world is beginning to crash
I apply one great stroke of mascara to my rather limp upper lash
And I can cope again
Good God
There's hope again
When life is a real bitch again and my old sense of humor has up and gone
It's time for the big switch again
I put a little more mascara on
When I count my crow's feet again
And tire of this perpetual marathon
I put down the john-seat again and put a little more mascara on
And everything's sparkle dust bugle beads, ostrich plumes
When it's a beaded lash that you look through
'Cos when I feel glamorous elegant, beautiful
The world that I'm looking at's beautiful too
When my little road has a few bumps again
And I need something level to lean upon
I put on my sling pumps again
And wham
This ugly duckling is a swan
So when my spirit starts to sag
I hustle out my highest drag and put a little more mascara on
And everything's ankle straps
Maribou, Shalimar
It's worth sucking in my gut and girdling my rear
'Cos everything's ravishing sensual, fabulous
When Albin is tucked away, and
ZaZa is here
When everything slides down the old tubes again
And when my self esteem has begun to drift
I strap on my fake boobs again and, literally give myself a lift
So when it's cold and when it's bleak
I simply rouge the other cheek for, I can face another day
In slipper satin lingerie to make depression disappear
I screw some rhine stones on my ear and put my brooches and tiara
And a little more mascara on
Sparkle dust, bugle beads
Ankle straps, Maribou
Ankle straps, Maribou
Ostrich plumes, Shalimar
Ravishing, fabulous
Ravishing, fabulous
