Fashion

So I’m telling you here now don’t feel sad

If you don’t think it’s cool to keep up with fads

Following fashion don’t mean a damn thing

Looking like a prince and acting like a queen

 

Fashion designers with world fame

You don’t buy their clothes you pay for their name

A fashion genius, his opinion is law

To shell out the bucks’ winter, summer, spring, and fall

 

Fashion! A fool’s passion

Fashion! A fool’s passion

It doesn’t mean one good damn thing

 

What makes fashion great when you let people starve?

You walk right past them just to use your charge card

Can’t you pass on one dress? Can’t you pass on one blouse?

To help a little child without food in her house

 

Well, I know I’m nobody here singing this song

But faith in fashion is just dead wrong

Put your faith in God and your love in mankind

And it won’t be your dress but your life that shines     (to chorus)

 

Quit running around trying to be chic’

Giving money to those who tell you, “Kiss my feet”

It’s better to have confidence in yourself

Than those fashion rags you will throw on the shelf

 

Come on people you’ve got to understand

It’s what’s inside that makes you woman or man

If you need to be told by Vogue or GQ

What you should wear, adulthood’s not for you   (to chorus)

 

Kick out fashion for some real style

Get back to the you… you haven’t seen for awhile

Let people see who you really are

Because in each of us there’s a shining star

      Someday, I promise. Along with some of the others I’ve done. I’m still working out some kinks in a new music program for the computer. I think I may have to upgrade before it gets taken care of properly.
