The Lyrics

We cannot tell it’s you
for quite some time.
You’ve a completely different ’do:
Hair ain’t flyin’;
now down it’s lyin’.

At last, we can figure
the mystery out:
You have been transfigured;
the change slams us like a water spout.
Then we can tell it’s you—
the birthmark sign’s

At first fooled,
then we ruled:
The bejeweled
one who tooled
in and ’round…
we had once shared
in men’s shops found…
now ladies’!

It’s pretty swell, the view.
In fact, divine!
