Modesty (Parody Of Billy Joel's Honesty)

Author:Parody
Theme: Modesty

VERSE 1:
If you want carnality
The market's stocked with pride
They're hockin' all the skin you'd wanna' buy
But if you look for modesty
You might as well be blind
Naughty flesh is all that meets your eye

.............CHORUS..................
Modesty
Is what our/this world needs
Everybody's so seduced
Modesty
It's all we never see
And mostly what I need from you
..............................................

VERSE 2:
Fools can always find some tramp
To make 'em fantasize
But you add up to more than body parts
Takers crave some made-up face
To sell 'em faked-up lies
All I want is pure love from your heart

[CHORUS]

BRIDGE:
Looks lure lovers
Fair-weather friends
To live on youth's arrogance
Until it leaves you dead
But the beauty I see
Is your humility
Your charm is true integrity

[CHORUS]
