Mink Coats

by Patty Larkin

Mink coats don't trickle down
And that old rebel yell has got a hollow sound
And I feel ridiculous, but it looks good on you

It's for the romance of a naked bulb
Champagne in a paper cup
Now that everybody loves you
Even Jesus loves you too

Never doubt
Who you are
Never think that
You don't deserve this
From down here
Where we are
You're the brightest
Star of the circus

You've got a history of gold lame
You can't help it you were born that way
With the dangerous gift of beauty
Now everybody's got the view

You've got the mystery of an open wound
It's such a mess and you're walking through the ruins
Dressed in black
With a permanent tattoo

Never doubt
Who you are
Never think that
You don't deserve this
From down here
Where we are
You're the brightest
Star of the circus

Mink coats don't trickle down
And the three ring circus is the perfect place for clowns
They look ridiculous
They think the joke's on you

Go on and them em a kiss
There will never be another you
