Ah, Norma Jean, a lovely girl,
|Image: Bert Stern|
takes on her glamorous disguise--
the platinum hair, the painted face
hides well the child behind those eyes.
Glitter and glitz, and bright smile flashed;
sad day for all when this star crashed…
to lose her light was such a sin,
forever remembered, Marilyn.
