KNICKS AND CUTS

Hairy legs and hairy pits
What’s a girl to do?
Break out the electric shaver
If it’s overgrown on you.

Lord knows we don’t like shaving
But the hairs grow oh so long
They pop up where you don’t want them to
Where they simply don’t belong.

You pluck them out, you pull and tug
But those damn things are so relentless
Some have roots like old oak trees
Your efforts leave you breathless.

Shaving cream makes such a mess
It’s tough to use a razor
The knicks and cuts that you’re left with
Look more like bloody craters.

They sting and burn, they hurt like hell
They take so long to heal
Bikini wax and depilatories
Might be a better deal.
