In every perfect city

are perfect little streets

and on these perfect streets

are perfect little houses

constructed with perfect little frames

and perfect little shapes.

Inside every perfect house

lives a perfect little family

with a mom and a dad

along with little sue and sally.

And in every perfect family

is a perfect little dog.

Every perfect little family

has perfect little lives with perfect 8:00 to 5:00 jobs

and a perfect little dinner at 7:00.

Every perfect little day, Sue and Sally come home from school

eat a little perfect snack before completing their homework.

Always perfect.

A perfect little A.

And they’ll grow up to be perfect little daughters,

telling perfect little lies

while they break their mommy’s heart

and make the perfect little boys cry.

And on a very perfect little day,

the perfect house with the perfect little frame

will fall into a perfect little pile

uncovering perfect little lies.
