Under the Pretty Frilly Dress

 Under the pretty frilly dress

Lies the power of life and of Death

It has given birth to nations

It has destroyed civilization


Under the pretty frilly Dress

It has the power to possess

and the power to be possessed


Under the pretty frilly dress

Men have risked life and freedom

Just for a touch, a taste, a feel


Under the pretty frilly dress

and the ability to destroy a family


Under the pretty frilly dress

I found my beauty

I also found my ungliness


Under the pretty frilly dress

You can choose your destiny

Under the pretty frilly dress

You can control the world

If you learn to keep

That pretty frilly dress down
