Original Girl Scout Cookie Recipe

Updated on July 31, 2017

Presented to the masses at large

With an air of wannabe Grace Kelly sophistication

And Katharine Hepburn rebellious mystery

What lies beneath an all too common mix

Of fear and anxiety laced with a sugar icing of naivety

Trusting one day that the ideal buyer

Will overlook the obvious cracks in the pavement

And ignore the misconception of being above it all

Nose curved up like a phony Hollywood snob

Too good to hang with the James Dean types

Who flip the proverbial bird to authority

Just the opposite of Page Six's perception

Hands shaking like the San Andreas fault

Wondering when the curtain will be pulled back

Exposed for being nothing but an awkward couch slug

Preferring the comfort of paperback fiction

To the cold hard reality of being slapped into submission

Tried very hard to take a sledgehammer to the mold

Sadly, that cast iron model harder to break than once thought

Won't stop trying to smash it though

Just need something stronger

Got any suggestions?

Time to break that mold sooner rather than later!
Time to break that mold sooner rather than later!
