The Lyrics

Takes time to do the make-up nice and clean
to do your lips and make a neat eye-line
Eyelashes too they are a pain indeed
so easy mess the work of so long time

Take a bruise, or heat spell - or squall of rain
go powder your nose again and again
do excercize, or go sweating in train
or dry your tears, or cry in pain

Making up, it needs care and attention
Making up, it needs time to do
Making up, it needs skill and affection
It's so easy to mess it for good

These are the things, these are the things
Things that ruin my make-up
These are the things, these are the things
Things that ruin my make-up

Take a swim in the sea, or have work to do
go check the servers in the machine room
go out to jog or go shopping in mart
- and in the end you'll look like tart

Making up, it needs care and attention
Making up, it needs time to do
Making up, it needs skill and affection
It's so easy to mess it for good

These are the things, these are the things
Things that ruin my make-up
These are the things, these are the things
Things that ruin my make-up
Like sweat and dust and tears and rain
Things you've never thought of
These are the things, these are the things
Things that ruin my make-up

Lipstick, powder, nail polish, rouge, foundation -
L'Oreal, Blasco, Mayb'lene, Rimmel, Max Factor -

These are the things, these are the things
Things that ruin my make-up...

Good one. Either have it tattooed on or do without.

Sounds exhausting! Funny!

Now we know: Middle Earth is somewhere near Finland. It must be, because, when I saw the title, I was sure this was an Arwen parody. Oh well, it's as good as hers usually are.
