daisy

go on 

an’
eat your 
cake

on your 

pretty 
little
plate

cross 

your fingers
at your 
ankles

beautiful 

fools
get the best of 
everthin’

hid 

under the 
skins of
careless lovers

did your momma 

teach you that,
when she taught you 
how to pray ?

did your daddy 

praise you
when you bat 
yo’ eyes?

you draw them

in
with your satin 
on their sin
make them
weep
with your 
sighs

go on 

an’
hook their 
arms

with your

clever
little 
charms

tell them 

stories
’bout
your conquests

you’re a child 
of god
jus’ doin’ her 
daddy’s work

say it 

enough
you’ll start 
believin’

did your momma

teach you that,
when she taught you 
how to pray ?

did your daddy

praise you
when you 
bat yo’ eyes?

you draw them 

in
with your satin 
on their sin
sweet
little lambs
flock to
lies
