Written by W.A. Adams (William Albert)
When every pool in Eden was a mirror
Which unto Eve her dainty charms proclaimed
She went undraped without a single fear, or
Thought that she had cause to be ashamed.
'Twas after she had eaten of the apple
Her eyes were opened and she understood
That she for evermore would have to grapple
With the much disputed question of the nude.
Since then she has devoted her attention
Her time and all her money to her clothes
And that was the beginning of convention
And modesty, as well, I do suppose.
But change has taken place in fashion recent
And girls conceal so little from the men.
I think it's time by all that's decent
That some one pass the apples round again.
