First verse by Dragonfly, next and every other verse by Lady Bleaux.


Aura of freshness
Surrounds a ripe, sun warmed peach
Sweetness and beauty

Sweetness and beauty
Always surrounds Southern belles
True charm and manners

True charm and manners
Are rare in this modern world
Grace is fading fast

Grace is fading fast
Call me Grace, and then I say
There's fire in me yet!

There's fire in me yet
But no one to fan the flame
Hot embers die hard

Hot embers die hard
just as desires of the heart
Alone and longing...

Alone and longing
For my true heart's desire
Free cable TV

Free cable TV
Dreams the rabbit ear people
Nightmares of boredom...

Nightmares of boredom
Run from imagination
Hail diversity!!

Hail diversity
Among creators of art
Real or fantasy...

Real or fantasy
Depends on your point of view
Who knows what is true?

Who knows what is true
After always crying wolf
Heyyy, give me a break...

Heyyy, give me a break
See all these long and gray hairs?
I earned every one

I earned every one
of the scars I wear today
Proud of my battles!

Proud of my battles
But ready to go fishing
Peaceful summer days

Peaceful summer days
call softly from the bayous
with mystic allure

With mystic allure
And arcane machinations
Females work their spells

Females work their spells
Like a spider weaves it's web...
Fine and intricate...

Fine and intricate
Are the connections between
Humans and nature

Humans and nature
should always live together
In life's harmony

In life's harmony
There's too many choruses...
Not enough duets

Not enough duets
And far too many divas
Strutting their proud selves...

Strutting their proud selves
Like roosters crowing at dawn
Worthless vanity

Worthless vanity
When beauty begins to fade
Ouch! My wrinkles hurt!

Ouch! My wrinkles hurt
But it soothes them if I smile
That's a lot better.

That's a lot better
they always seem to say, when
we do things their way!

We do things their way
When it pleases us better
To skip a quarrel

To skip a quarrel
Agree! Walk away smiling...
Heyyy, you know you're right

Heyyy, you know you're right
Just smile at your enemies,
It will drive them nuts

It will drive them nuts
Spring fever and wanderlust
Ohh, the restless heart...

Ohh, the restless heart
Moves in mysterious ways
Without any feet

Without any feet
what to do with all these shoes
Just give them away?

Just give them away
The giver also receives
Much more than just thanks

Much more than just thanks
When giving others your care
A heart's true rewards

A heart's true rewards
Comes with touching another...
A soft connection

A soft connection
are ties that bind us to others
Lasting, loyal love
