Your face when sleeping is sublime
And then you open up your eyes

Then comes pancake factor number one
eyeliner, rose hips and lip gloss, such fun
You're a slick little girl

you're a slick little girl

Rouge and coloring, incense and ice
perfume and kisses, ooohhh, it's all so nice
You're a slick little girl
you're such a slick little girl

Now, we're coming out
out of our closets
Out on the streets
yeah, we're coming out


When you're in bed it's so wonderful
it'd be so nice to fall in love
When you get dressed I really get my fill
people say that it's impossible

Gowns lovely made out of lace
and all the things that you do to your face
You're a slick little girl
oh, you're a slick little girl

Eyeliner, whitener then color the eyes
yellow and green, ooohhh, what a surprise
You're a slick little girl
oh, you're such a slick little girl

Now, we're coming out
out of our closets
Out on the streets
yes, we're coming out
Yeah, we're coming out
yeah, we're coming out
