The Lyrics

Nothing could be finer
Than a handbag by designer
For Dear Oprah
Nothing would be glitzer,
Fancy smancy, ultra Ritz-er
For our Oprah

But a sad sad story
'Bout the nice purse store.
Switzerland clerk says, "Sorry,
You look like you're too poor."

Apalled was our girly,
Who makes Dow and Nasdaq pearly,
Dear sweet Oprah..
Irritation fluttered up,
Should bad mouth that poor clerky Schlup
For "Nope-ra"

But our "You Go, Girl" Ms showed..
A whole lot more class
She - fluffed it off - used media mass
Store winds up with shiner,
Thirty-eight thousand Designer
No sale - Oprah..

Tag attached to story,
An apology
Store doesn't say it's "Sorry"
Our Oprah does, "Oh, Gee!"

Late show joke, flips Conan
Audience is laughin', groanin'
At this "Soap-ra"
"Not only did she buy the joint,
She bought the country, proved her point,
Dear Oprah."

Moral is don't judge, by cover, books that you see
That book might be - the all time queen - of daytime TV
Nothing would fit finer
Than a handbag by designer
For ...Dear....Oooo - Oo - Oo - prahhh

Is there any reason a store clerk in Switzerland should know who Oprah is? A woman who came up from poverty probably has more practical things to spend money on anyway. After she learned the price, Oprah herself said the price was too much.

Light-hearted, deft and funny, as per usual. I wonder what was wrong with the old bag - um, the one she carries! Fun fives.

This is the $38,000 handbag I've sort of heard about in the news recently, yes?
Whenever I see your name in the list I always make a beeline for it, because I already know it's going to be a good'un. And once again you've written a classic, with loads of witty lines and a great re-telling of the story. 38,000-dollars-worth of 555s for this one :^)
