Stars look stupid
and I’ve some advice for cupid,
stick to what you know, pal,
dispense with the afterglow, pal,
please.
What’s the use of swooning?

Moon looks dirty
but only since seven-thirty,
when someone who shall be nameless
took liberties with this flameless fire,
a siren and her blameless lyre –

Aurora Borealis is a sham
filet mignon might just as well be ham.
Some claim that love is blue.
What I wouldn’t trade for that drab color.

de Milo is disarmed of all her guile
the Seven Wonders wander out of style.
Some claim that love is blue.
What I wouldn’t trade for that drab color.

What else is new, dear?
I’ve nothing in mind but you, dear.
Patience my favorite virtue
in time he can only hurt you; true.
When he does, we’re through
we two.
