The Error of her Ways

She chatted online with her ex
- That's where she went wrong
- He showed her the error of her ways
Now she wears a long-sleeved dress

She spilt his drink and made a mess
- That was her big mistake
- She says she bumped into the door
You know how clumsy she gets

Beach Body

You all must be Beach Body Ready!
Or you surely must wither in shame!
If your body is flawed or unsteady
Then you just have your own self to blame!

No, the beach has no space for relaxing!
It's a place for perfection parades!
You need slimming! And toning! And waxing!
We have products in buckets - and spades!
