That Sophisticated Thing

That sophisticated thing you do
With a glamor that wraps you up in the nines
From your head to your shoe

That articulated bounce in your heel
That springs you out and back home again
In a manner unreal

No glass slippers
To drop for all of these takers
Arrayed like this, you’re quite the dish
For the gossiping melody makers

That solipticated, understated – oh, so complicated!
That sophisticated number you’re doing on me
