Seven Year Itch

I step on the scene

With all eyes on me

I see the faces of my adoring fans

Shouting for me

I walk upon the subway grating

I pause and I pose

Gusts of air come out of the holes

I push down my skirt and I hold the pose

Flick, flick, flick

Pictures taken by all my fans

I love the attention

This is all I ever wanted for my future plans

Footnotes  : Marilyn posed for 2 hours on a subway grating, outside  of  the Trans- Lux

 Theater in New York City, for her adoring fans. The picture of the famous skirt blowing scene

From the Seven Year Itch is one of the most famous pictures of  Marilyn still yet today.
