Beautiful As A Statue

Woman, you are so beautiful

That you look like a statue

Which has feathers and two wings.

 

Oh! I'm too stubborn

To love a doll

Which is too modern and made up.

 

I'm looking for

One who is not so disguised

Oh! No, this one has dry skin

And the hair too untangled.

 

I want a human woman

Full of flaws and errors

Who can only laugh ten times a week

Simply to charm my heart.
