she’s whiskey in a tea cup
she’s strong to say the least
every word from her mouth
is another bite sized feast
with glistening porcelain skin
she’s more than a little fine
a woman that’s come in contact with
more than a little wine
she’s whiskey in a teacup
she’s stronger than she appears
a sweet drink turned sour
from shedding more than a few tears
she’ll spin your head around
and leave you gasping for breath
she’ll take you on a ride
you didn’t know you were ready for quite yet
she’s whiskey in a tea cup
a little delicate and a little soft
she’s whiskey in a teacup
her aesthetic’s a little off
she’s whiskey in a tea cup
and through her fine dress
she’s danger just there lurking
behind a smile that hides it best
