She called herself by some pretentious name,
Expecting to impress me,
To me, she really looked the same
She only managed to depress me.

Her silly little Head-games,
For which she was not well-equipped,
Makes her actions all quite lame
Yes, from her Pedestal she has slipped!

If she really wants to win me,
I wish she'd start being Herself,
For all this phoniness, through, I can see--
And it really doesn't help.

But she's a Diamond in the rough,
I'm sure she's a Heart of Gold,
If I can only expose it enough--
I'll have uncovered her Wealth, yet untold!

So while I could, I've not yet retreated,
For a Miracle could here well take place,
Her Transformation would be well greeted--
By a genuine Smile on my face!
