lyrics

MARILYN MONROE

She said - why you always dancing with those $100 skirts?
A tick been in development from this day back to birth
You’ve finally found your calling on this earth

He said - why you always dancing with those $100 suits?
It’s not that I got jealous, oh I doubt you’re in cahoots
You’ve finally found your temptress at the roots

Ten thousand polka dots won’t scar your soul, your soul
And I’m finding out that we’re all growing old, but it’s slow

Is it too much to ask?
Should you already know?
I want you dressed up like Marilyn Monroe
But I know you feel the cold
And you don’t like being on show
But your 50’s in your 50’s
But your 50’s in your 50’s is too old

She said - why you always dancing with those $100 skirts?
A tick been in development from this day back to birth
You’ve finally found your calling on this earth

Ten thousand polka dots won’t scar your soul, your soul
And I’m finding out that we’re all growing old, but it’s slow

Is it too much to ask?
Should you already know?
I want you dressed up like Marilyn Monroe
I know you feel the cold
And you don’t like being on show
But your 50’s in your 50’s
your 50’s in your 50’s
your 50’s in your 50’s
your 50’s in your 50’s is too old
