ISADORA DUNCAN
by
Andrew Vasey

"Isadora, my dear," her mother once said,
"Since dancing is what you do best,
Then dance all you will, but don't catch a chill,
Make sure that you're wearing a vest."

You're a legend, Miss D., for your passion for life,
And men to your door beat a path,
But your mother would say, "Isadora, it's cold -
So always remember your scarf."

"Isadora, my dear," her mother once said,
"I don't mind that you take all those lovers,
So bed all you will, but don't catch a chill -
Make sure you stay under the covers."

You're a legend, Miss D., for your communist views,
You never did things by a half,
But your mother would say, "Isadora, it's cold -
So always remember your scarf."

"Isadora, my dear, your atheist views
Are sure to consign you to Hell.
Believe what you will, but don't catch a chill -
Make sure you wrap up really well."

You're a legend, Miss D., for your life of excess,
But now we must stifle a laugh,
For your mother's advice proved no good in the end:
"Always remember your scarf."
