The Fig Leaves Are Falling (Alan Sherman) The fig leaves are falling All over the place, And that is a fact that We've all got to face. To all of you statues, Hi-ho, here's looking at yous, 'Cause the fig leaves Are falling everywhere. The times are a-changing, Yes, that's how it looks In songs, and in movies, In plays and in books. With each day, that censor Gets nervouser and tenser, As the fig leaves Go falling everywhere. It started with Eve, they say She wore 'em with Adam, But I don't believe that Eve and Adam Even had 'em. That story's too glib, a fib, A Biblical fable. People dressed in fig leaves Simply can't raise Cain, or Abel. And so if you ever Should travel to Greece, You'll see why those sculptors Can now rest in peace. Throughout the acropolis, They're bottomless and topless, 'Cause the fig leaves are falling everywhere. That stodgy old music hall In Radio City Is showing those shows Where folks expose their nitty gritty. Wherever you go, the walls Are full of graffiti. Have you seen those scenes from "War And Peace" Or Warren Beatty? I heard of a merger, It happened last June. Hugh Hefner, he bought the Chicago Tribute. So now in the funnies, Dick Tracy's chasing bunnies, 'Cause the fig leaves are falling. Ain't it appalling? Those fig leaves are falling everywhere. Copyright Alan Sherman RG oct99
