How did I forget my shoes?


I've got my prom dress take-in
But how did I forgot my shoes
I'd like my hair-up with a pin:
Simple elegance with roughhews…

Now as it nears panic sets in…
Oh, how did I forgot my shoes
Oh where does one now begin?
Really, do I need any - hairdos?

I'm plain they say but beautiful…
I'm smart, and so, all I need is.
Some small white ballet shoes not dull.
And then I'll fly, then I'll whizz…

Like a firework with new belief,
I'll be they're beautiful prom princess
But how did I forget my slipper.
Did I just dream my lost coyness?

Was I really that, hot I left a path?
Of glowing, lily-white cinders.
Did you not spy my naked ankles?
…Barefoot running with your ardours.

Oh, how did I forget my shoes?
Simple elegance with roughhews…
Really, do I need any - hairdos?
His first to last kiss was it just a ruse
Oh, how did I forget my shoes?
