Notes:
"do you paint your toenails red with blue and golden sparkles? do they glow like shimmering stars, polished to catch his eye? do you shave your hairy legs, shave so close they start to bleed? don’t you know that men like smooth? bare is best in bed. do you sing like baby swans, as soft and sweet as you can be? do you want to be a wife? do you feel your skin ripped off, your bones so frail, you cannot breathe? do you feel your lungs collapse? i can’t come up for air do you hear your voice, your mouth held shut" Also exists arranged for singing vln, singing bsn, singing pno, & singing perc.
