Treasure Island

Shiny Red Shoes In Soho


Shiny red shoes in Soho carry certain shady meanings
Understood by those who sadly stray that way.
Shiny red dress in Soho clearly means to welcome
Some attention from the punters as they pass.
Shiny red lips in Soho promise pleasures quite arcane
To those that glance, entranced as past they prance
But all these red enticers decked the prettiest, purest person
In the guise of an enchanting, tiny child
And innocence returned once more to squalid, sordid Soho
Whose embarrassment reflected shiny red.
