Beauties From The Past
Do you ever see pictures of women
From the turn of the twentieth century?
So charming with style and grace
Women with so much mystery?
So many looked like movie stars
And some of them probably were
At a time when class was in style
Though hard times they had to endure
There’s just something about their faces
The way they curled their hair
I don’t know, a different kind of beauty
So pretty, so sweet and fair
Didn’t have botox and face-lifts then
No, their beauty was the natural kind
Not a lot of make-up either
Nowadays it’s much harder to find
So when you watch an old movie
Or look at pictures from the past
Watch for the ladies of long ago
With a beauty that seemed to last!
