First Line: It's quite conceivable to me
Last Line: Mouthing a wad of gum.
Subject(s): Heresy; Heretics

It's quite conceivable to me
(Forgive the awful heresy),
A gentleman may drink a glass
Of wine, nor thereby forfeit class.

The bishop's wife—or your best girl—
Smoking a cigarette,
Though she be not a saint in any sense
May be a lady yet.

But the man or the maid is out of class
From now until kingdom come,
Whom you meet in office or house or street,
Mouthing a wad of gum.
