Tamara Baxter at the Female Missionary
Intelligencer HQ cherry wood desk
and a chinese typewriter:
and three locked drawers that you opened with your Knoxville pocket knife, Tamara Baxter,

Virtue and carbon copy ditto paper eye shadow blue.
Virtue and carbon copy ditto paper eye shadow blue.
Virtue and carbon copy ditto paper eye shadow blue.
Virtue and carbon copy ditto paper eye shadow blue.

Yesterday you had a meeting with Mrs. Means-
a stormy meeting in which too much was said,
especially by Mrs. Means; and you wrote it all down, clever girl,
in a memo marked Mrs. Means meeting memo.

Virtue and carbon copy ditto paper eye shadow blue.
Virtue and carbon copy ditto paper eye shadow blue.
Virtue and carbon copy ditto paper eye shadow blue.
Virtue and carbon copy ditto paper eye shadow blue.

And you produced that memo 5 weeks later when she moved to have you dismissed for being, once or twice late - maybe-
and too slow a Chinese typist - ridiculous!
So now you've got the key to those three locked drawers,
not that you ever needed it, Tamara Baxter

At the East Town mall and the beaver brook country club;
over 6th Baptist church down on Blackstock ave,
I bet they miss you more than ever,
but you're never going back
- please, don't ever go back.

Virtue and carbon copy ditto paper eye shadow blue.
Virtue and carbon copy ditto paper eye shadow blue.
Virtue and carbon copy ditto paper eye shadow blue.

Choose your cherry wood picked-lock drawer desk
and your Jusco old Japanese made Chinese typewriter,
and me - I admit it.

Tamara Baxter at the Female Missionary
Intelligencer HQ cherry wood desk,
and a chinese typewriter:
and three locked drawers that you still open with your Knoxville pocket knife, Tamara Baxter,

Virtue and carbon copy ditto paper-shadow blue.
Virtue and carbon copy ditto paper-shadow blue.
Virtue and carbon copy ditto paper-shadow blue.
Virtue and carbon copy ditto paper-shadow blue.

Chose your cherry-wood broken-lock drawer desk,
And your Jusco Japanese-made Chinese,
and me - I admit it.

Chose your cherry-wood broken-lock drawer desk,
And your Jusco Japanese-made Chinese,
and me - I admit it.
