One afternoon Lily was having an ice cream dream,
A young man with a glossy moustache approached her ingratiating and clean.
He took her for a walk in the park, inserted his finger in her... glove,
He took her to his apartment and to her he made love.
Trampled Lily, Trampled Lily.
The next morning before going out he presented her with a ruffled peignoir of gin,
After that each morning she read ladies’ magazines
In the afternoon she entertained gentlemen, gentlemen on her bed,
The young man gave way to an older man with a heavy beard.
Trampled Lily, Trampled Lily.
Under the influence of a lecture from a passing senator she decided to reform,
She was placed in a back bedroom with bars like a prison dorm.
She gave birth to a defective infant placed in an orphanage overfull
And as she lost her freshness on the streets the punters she pulled.
Trampled Lily, Trampled Lily.
She was continually harassed by masculine women in black bonnets trying to set her free,
And as she reached her twentieth birthday she died a loathsome disease.
