Why I’m Always Polite

The reason why it’s always ladies first
Is not as widely known as it should be.
It’s all about a man’s untempered thirst
For studying the things he loves to see.
If he goes first the beauty lies behind
And out in front there’s nothing in his view,
Although there’s always ladies on his mind
He’d far prefer to look at girls like you.
A sexist rule? Of course but long ago
There wasn’t Germaine Greer to tell them so!
