The Lyrics

A bit of context: I live in a suburban burg that makes Levittown look like Sodom and Gomorrah. It turns out we have a self-appointed arbiter of morality at the gallery where I exhibit--not just for the degenerate artists but for the whole town as well, at least in her easily shocked eyes. To wit: the current featured artist has a piece entitled "Fatherless Child," which features a chaste, but nude! mother and daughter. And--horror of horrors!--you can see the kid's pudendum. So the prig, who--to make this farce even more farcical--is on the board of the nonprofit under whose aegis the gallery operates, forced the artist to cover the "offending" area with a leaf. This is so far beyond idiocy that's in unquantifiable. It's easily satirized, however.
Have you seen the slit of missy?
Balls of eyes will hurt.
Isn't it an awful pity
That they'd show this dirt?!
She's wearing no skirt!!
Displayed her mound is!!!

We have got a skittish priggy--
Keeps eyeballs from hurt.
She knows what's lickerish, priggy;
She'll clean up the dirt:
"Artists" who besmirch. . .
Display a mound rift.

In her eyes, purity's lacking--
She'll dictate the taste for the town.
See girls' pies, up folks are shacking,
Or they beat it. . .manhood whacking!!

Wretch, she's there, this awful priggy,
Meddling in our lives.
When she sees a bit o' skin,
The witch itches with hives,
Lustful this, as swives--
Beastly lovemakin'.

[harpsichord solo, fade on snorting voice]:
"This is filth, degenerate art, obscenity, pornography, disgusting, shocking. . . ."
