AaI Harvey (13/07/80 / Cannock)
Make me pretty, pierce my skin,
Push the needle deep inside.
Make me happy, picture perfect,
Picture this until the day that I die.
Symbolize the latest trend,
Oh my God it looks so cool.
Draw your vision upon my chest,
Make me another painted fool.
Tattoo pretty, picture perfect,
Ok, do it, I shall have no regrets.
Give me pain and a permanent imprint,
I should have done this with a straight head.
Pass me a joint so I don’t feel it,
I don’t know why some people like pain.
I just want a pretty picture,
Permanently placed upon my skin.
Oh it must be on my arm, so everyone can see it,
Now I need to buy some clothes, so I can emphasize it.
Now all I need is a neon light and to speak a little louder,
I hope they hear me and ask me about it,
I’d hate it if they didn’t bother.
What if they don’t notice it?
What if they don’t notice me?
What if I’ve made a huge mistake?
Why should I be concerned?
It’s not like I can do anything.
Ok I’m now so tattoo pretty,
I have a symbol on my arm.
I don’t know what the Chinese symbol means,
But I think it does look really cool.
What next? What can I put on my leg?
What about after that? Maybe one on my chest?
Oh and I must get my back covered with something;
Oh that would look so cool on my neck.
I like that one she’s got on her hand,
I’d like to have that, on the side of my head.
I’d love it if I completely covered in tattoos,
Tattoo pretty died, unrecognizable to her kids.
