A tattoo or two
 

I kissed her on her butterfly,

I kissed her on her rose,

I kissed her on her angel's wings,

I kissed her heart and scroll.

 

In the urgency for love sometimes there is little

Time to spare and even less time to think,

She was lonely and so was I, so it made sense

To fall in love - if only for an hour.

 

I kissed her on her spider's web,

I kissed her flowering shoots,

I kissed her on her mermaid,

I kissed her Betty Boop.

 

Tell me, is this way to paradise or have I

Been misled? Oh, no sir, you have not, for there is

A tattoo or two you may rely on for guidance.

 

I kissed her on her tiger's head,

I kissed her on her bell,

I kissed her on her beauty spot,

I kissed her pimpernel.

 

Late afternoon sunshine streamed across the bed

As we found each other for the third time,

Her rose in one hand her butterfly in

The other - seems an hour wasn't

Nearly long enough…
