The Streetcar
Lyrics and music by Beth Portman, copyright 2015

I caught the streetcar number 23
With rosy woods and brass all shiny
And I'm having a party where no one else is gonna be
I got my silk stockings on and I'm feelin' fine

I got them from my baby
But that love is dead and done
But these stockings that he gave me
Have their own seductive fun
One for each leg - rolled up to the thigh
Snapped with a clip - front and back
So smooth you gotta try

I caught the streetcar number 48
I'll watch the view and enjoy this special date
With my hose and my heels and everything else concealed
I got my silk stockings on and I'm feelin' fine

Lace along the top
and a seam right down the back
I slide my fingers up my calf
To smooth out any slack
My little secret no ones gonna know
Oops did I tell you - I think I told you
Oh but it's all just for show

I caught the streetcar number 36
Won't snag my hose on the seat that's never fixed
Or I'll be running - running on down the line
I got my silk stockings on and I wanna stay fine

Don't want no nylon for me to try on
Bare legs are simply not my style
I'll skip the rayon - It's silk I'm hooked on
And tights are girly and I'm a woman

I caught the streetcar number 23
With rosy woods and brass all shiny
And I'm having myself a party where no one else is gonna be
I got my silk stockings on and I'm feelin' fine
I got my silk stockings on
I got my silk stockings on
I got my silk stockings on and I'm feelin fine
