THE ADVERTISING MAN'S LOVE SONG, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: You have the skin I love to touch
Last Line: A little fairy in our home!
Subject(s): Advertising; Love


You have the Skin I Love to Touch,
You've kept that smooth School Girl Complexion,
Because I Love Nice Things so much
You've won my heart and my affection.
I love your Sunkist hair, your smile;
Your kisses—I cannot deny
For one of them I'd Walk a Mile,
They're Mild and Yet They Satisfy.

It's plain Such Popularity
Must Be Deserved. With all my power,
I'll tell the world you are to me
A miracle, Fresh Every Hour.
Yes, There's a Reason—which is you.
About me your enchantment casts
A spell which is forever new,
In other words—The Flavor Lasts.

Oh let me always be about
To guard you from life's many ills,
Absorb the Shocks That Tire You Out
And pay your board and lodging bills.
Eventually, Why Not Now?
We'll settle down, no more to roam,
And have—if so the fates allow—
A Little Fairy in Our Home!
