Cole Porter

"I Am Ashamed that Women are So Simple"

[LILI]
I am ashamed that women are so simple
To  offer war, where they should kneel for peace
Or  seek for rule, supremacy, and sway
When they are bound to serve, love and obey

Why are our bodies soft and weak and smooth
Unapt  to toil and trouble in the world
But  that our soft conditions and our hearts
Should well agree with our external parts?

So,  wife, hold your temper
And meekly put
Your hand 'neath the soul of
Your husband's foot
In  token of which duty
If he please
My hand is ready
Ready
May it due him ease
