It Had to Have Been A MAN
LC Van Savage
It had to have been a woman hater
The guy who invented that.
A real angry chap, a true mandater
Of high style from shoes to hat.
I think he invented girdles and then
Was thrilled when he saw they hurt,
And insisted each maiden and doyenne
Look indecent in a much too short skirt.
But females really must take all the blame
For letting this guy dictate
That they should wear clothes which make them feel shame
And cause pain they can't tolerate.

This woman hater is really quite good
At creating painful clothes
But the lowest blow he dealt womanhood
Was inventing pantyhose.
