The Lyrics

She loves her
Nail-polish trim.
But she don't love nothing else. . .
Enamel skin.
So on it goes
Till completely dried.
'twixt toes, cotton puffs
Help keep the digits pried.
She'll have no blue;
Deep reds are for finks!
One hue's for sure:

Lush pinks,
Nails, nails.
Lush pinks,
Nails, nails.

Blue eschew, a snide deride.
Lush is a toned-down vermillion
Thickly applied.
She's at the mall;
She buys them all.
Can't wait to try
"Fussy* GaloreĀ®."

She don't care for any carmine-ochre thing.
All she'll pay for is:

Lush pinks,
Sales, sales.
Lush pinks,
Sales, sales.

She's been through violets. . .
Thinks purple stinks.
For just one she falls:

Lush pinks,
Nails, nails.
Lush pinks,
Sales, sales.

*Fuss: German for foot

I own various Shades of "Lush Pink" Nail Polish: Hot Pink, Pink-ing of You, Marvelous Pink, Carnation Pink, Pinky Swear, Think Pink, and Cinematic Pink. In the words of Julia Roberts from Steel Magnolias, "Pink is my signature color." Just now I did my nails and I have on the color Cinematic Pink. (I blow my nails dry). Wow, so pretty! You sure had tickled me pink with your parody! 555!!!
