Nip Tuck

Various scalpels

Various scalpels (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Just a minor alteration
No need for such great vexation
Nip and tuck, precise intent
Know your money is well spent

On your face or in your life
I can skilfully turn my knife
Anything you want cut out
Will be gone without a doubt

Blemish here, or errant groom?
Secrets never leave this room
Contracts written on the side
Can release unhappy brides

So if you’re unhappy, wife
Nip tuck him right out of life
Facelift now, and work with me
Life lifts thrown in just for free!
