STEWED PRUNES AND PRISMS
 
div
 
I've studied beauty, I've studied it well
Beauty I've studied and truly I'll tell
I can make beauties of every belle
Look what I've made of myself
Every girl from the North to the South
Seems to be anxious to get a small mouth
That's quite easy it's done in this way
Just screw your lips up and then softly say,

Chorus: 'Stewed prunes and prisms, Stewed prunes and prisms
That will make your mouth so small
People won't know you've a mouth at all
Don't stop to study Ologies and Isms
Place your lips like a solar eclipse and say
Stewed prunes and prisms.'


Mouths are so funny when first they are seen
Some you could use as a bathing machine
Others are so large, you know what I mean
Others are larger than that
Best shape of all is a small cupid's bow
Something that's never attempted to grow
Get one, it's easy as easy can be
Don't make a noise but just murmur with me,

Chorus: 'Stewed prunes and prisms, Stewed prunes and prisms
That will make your mouth so small
People won't know you've a mouth at all
Don't stop to study Ologies and Isms
Place your lips like a solar eclipse and say
Stewed prunes and prisms.'
