Was a lady at China Beach,
She wore a bikini that pinched her cheeks.
Only problem was her combat boots,
They didn’t go with her tooty toots.
OD and black did not compromise,
This fine lady, nor her petite size.
But when I went to her,
And looked in her eyes.
I knew in an instant, I’d lost this prize;
She was an Officer in disguise.
She dropped me for twenty by the sea,
Laughed, then kicked me in the knee.
