Modesty plays, modesty plays
Modesty plays, modesty plays

She may like caviar and cocktails
She may like symphonies and sun
But underneath the gown and high heels
She's like a fully loaded gun

Modesty plays, modesty plays
Modesty plays, modesty plays
Modesty plays, modesty plays

The world is runnin' out of heroes
The world is runnin' out of time
Where are those martial arts maneuvers
We're getting massacred by crime

Well, listen buddy don't you worry
She may not look like Genghis Khan
And she may talk about her manicure
But she can sure get things done

Modesty plays, modesty plays
Modesty plays, modesty plays

Modesty plays, modesty plays
Modesty plays, modesty plays, modesty plays

Don't underestimate the lady
She may seem cultured and demure
But there's another side and careful
She'll hit you like a 2 by 4

The world is running out of heroes
And everybody's out on bail
As long as modesty is on our side
Good will surely prevail

Modesty plays, modesty plays
Modesty plays, modesty plays
Modesty plays, modesty plays

Modesty plays, modesty plays
Modesty plays, modesty plays
Modesty plays
