My Little Black Dress
Big things happen in my Little Black Dress
I put it on, take a deep breath,
and instantly Impress
I exude Class, Elegance and Charm
As I stand in my Pose
Yet I’m Sexy, Wild and Free
Looking like Anything goes.
Whether I’m Mourning or Messing,
Dressed up or dressed down
My Little Black Dress takes me all around town
I can go to church or to the club
From breakfast to dinner
With my Black Dress on I immediately
Look and feel like a Winner
Stylish, versatile and always Ready
Whatever occasion may arise
With my Black Dress on and the right attitude
I am a Master of Disguise
Add a hat and some pearls with a little finesse
Perfect for a brunch or a tea
Then switch to hoops and stilettos and a bit of pizzazz
And what will be, will definitely be!
Always expecting the best and never settling for less
Because big things happen in my Little Black Dress
