But was against performing nude

This is the third verse of The Ballad of May West.

New York officials, she did vex
She wrote a Broadway play called Sex

The incident established her renown.

This is the second verse of The Ballad of May West.

Now you’ve no doubt heard of Mae West
A woman noted for her chest
That’s not the kind that’s filled with pirates’ gold.
She was a star of film and stage
Her bawdy humor was the rage
Her flamboyance was something to behold.
