Everything you always wanted to know about miniskirts


Let's give three cheers for Mary Quant
who knows just what the people want.
What's that? You don't remember her?
Well, she created quite a stir
and controversy--yes, a binful,
with fashions that some thought were sinful.
'Twas nineteen-hundred-sixty-eight;
her minis stormed the
Golden Gate.
For she designed the miniskirt,
with which each coed soon was girt.
It took
America by storm
and made us all feel really warm.
It brought elation to the eye
of every woman-loving guy,
and was the swinging, swaying pal
of every freedom-loving gal.
For garterbelts and crinolines,
sometimes held up by safety pins,
had been replaced by pantyhose,
or just a suntan, heaven knows.
For guys the mini left revealed
the wonders skirts had long concealed.
For gals the mini marked the hour
of breaking out and taking power.
It helped to foster new relations
between the sexes in all nations.
It brought world peace; it was a star!
What's that? You think I've gone too far?
Well, anyway, it doesn't hurt,
so lets enjoy the miniskirt.
