Out to Lunch

A drive away there's various places

full of fat people filling their faces

with things they don't need

not because of greed

but just because it's there

and they've nothing else to do

so they eat cake and drink tea

at least it's better than daytime TV

Death of a Drummer

Considering his lifestyle he did well to reach eighty

but time and tide have overtaken him.

He was the cream of the crop

but he's banged his skins for the last time

though you may still hear them boom

where cream always rises to the top

in the white room

I Love Her

I loved her thirty years ago

and I love her still

but these days increasingly

it's a battle of wills

 

But I love her

I bloody love her

I love her to bits

but even though I love her

she's getting on my tits
