Elizabethan fashion was the rage,
All silk and velvet, pearl and fancy stone,
From commoners to actors on the stage,
The rich and wealthy nobles set the tone.
The ladies wore high ruffs and fancy gowns,
The men wore velvet shirts with puffy sleeves,
And for the royalty, bejeweled gold crowns,
A fancy-schmansy look they did achieve.
Corsets the people had to suffer through,
And women wore their hoop-skirts ev’ry day,
To have to dress like that would make me blue,
But living now, I never will…I pray!
Although it’s fun to dress like kings and queens,
I still prefer my t-shirt and my jeans.
