Reinventing Me

(Gail Marten)
October 15, 2009

I will reinvent myself, become another me
I will circumvent my natural personality.
Find a formula to free…an alternate reality
And maybe then he’ll fall in love with me.

I will rise at six am…To exercise my chi
Stop at eight and meditate…Achieving harmony.
Change the color of my hair…Reconstruct my derriere
Surely then he’ll fall in love with me.

A shopping spree at Lord and T, I’ll want to look my best.
Scrutinize and then revise…The contour of my chest.
Botox my brow and lift my chin—Fill the rest with collagen.
Then I KNOW he'll fall in love with me.

If I reinvent myself, will it be me he’ll see?
Or the sweet fantasia that I pretend to be?
When he looks into my eyes
Do you think he’ll recognize
The one and only quintessential me?

Refrain:
Ooh, I’m getting butterflies  
Will he see through my disguise
That I am who I pretend to be?
I’m about to vaporize
Do you think he’ll recognize
The one and only quintessential
Meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee?
