"My Strongest Suit" as written by Elton John and Tim Rice....
Overwear, underwear, anytime, anywhere

Now I believe in looking
Like my time on earth is cooking
Whether polka dotted, striped or even checked
With some glamour guaranteeing
Every fibre of my being
Is displayed to quite remarkable effect
From your cradle via trousseau
To your death bed you're on view, so
Never compromise, accept no substitute
I would rather wear a barrel
Than conservative apparel
Because dress has always been my strongest suit

Overwear, underwear, anytime, anywhere

Staying in or hitting townwards
From the top and working downwards
I ensure that every stitch is stitched in time
Whether wig or hat or turban
Whether clad boudoir or urban
Not to strut your stuff outrageously's a crime
And the few who are invited
To my wardrobe are delighted
As they wander through my things to find en route
That in negligee or formal
I am anything but normal
Because dress has always been my strongest suit

Overwear, underwear, anytime, anywhere

Now you don't need a recital
Of the reasons why it's vital
That tonight my trappings will not be subsued
That from coronet to sandal
No one else is worth a candle
That I couldn't make more impact in the nude
So bring me all my finest
Most audacious, mi divine-ist
Most revealing, most expensive and to boot
Most arresting, most heart-stopping
Most free flowing, most eye popping
Because dress has always been my strongest suit

Overwear, underwear, anytime, anywhere

    General CommentIn life, one has to face a huge assortment
    of nauseating facts, and good advice.
    Health, fitness, diet and deportment
    and other pointless forms of sacrifice
    In conversation, wit, I am a doubter
    Manners charm- they're no way to impress.
    So forget the inner me, observe the outer.
    I am what I wear
    And how I dress....

    General CommentThe spice girls did a cover of this song. thats why the "In life..." part isn't in it. It's a rather good cover too, If I do say so myself

    General CommentActually, it's not a cover. It's from Elton John and Tim Rice's Aida album. a concept album by Elton John on Aida's Broadway. The song are far more older than the broadway recording, hence the concept album. The album are more Pop record that high profile artists featured on the album. =)
