ON   THE   FACE   OF   IT


I'm trying to keep my composure
I'm trying to stay cool and calm
Every time I begin to frown
There goes that darned alarm

Morbid expressions are bad for your health you know
Each grimace is another line on your face
So a smile is well worth the benefit
Point those crow's feet to another place

If I'm vexed I try not to show it
If I'm excited I stay the same too
The only routine I stay faithful with
And this is what you should do

Facial exercises are all the rage now
Though in the privacy of your home you'll agree
Don't try them in front of an audience
Or they'll have occasion to scream and flee

Head back and pull your chin upwards
Pretend you're a fish taking gasps
Feel the tension working wonders in your neck region
Don't speak or it will sound like a sore rasp

Contorting is the best form of physical activity
Will keep your profile lithe and taut and young
The only other remedy is a full face lift
For which a few thousand pounds you'll be stung
