Number of Quotes: 4




By the time you say you're his,
Shivering and sighing
And he vows his passion is
Infinite, undying -
Lady, make a note of this:
One of you is lying.


Guns aren't lawful;
Nooses give;
Gas smells awful;
You might as well live.


Tell him I've been too fucking busy - or vice versa.

Why is it no one ever sent me yet
One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get
One perfect rose.
