HE, 29 Others And Me

Yesterday I woke up in London
we arrived late the night before 
We had a good reason to be there
but still a little unsure  

On Tuesday morning this week 
I received an email out of the blue 
It said I had won a competition 
which I couldn’t believe was true

I thought it was some sort of scam 
so I phoned up to check it out
They told me I had definitely won
and I shouldn’t have any doubt

It was all a bit mysterious 
it was for a playback and Q&A
I asked if HE would be there 
but they wouldn’t confirm either way

So we decided to take a gamble 
and headed down London way
I checked the details a thousand times 
we had the right time and right day 

We arrived at the secret venue
then they told us HE won’t be here
I turned to my friend with a frown 
and admit I nearly shed a tear 

Led into a small cinema room
just thirty of us in all 
We settled into the comfy seats 
surrounded by sound proof walls

It started to feel a little strange 
just what were we doing in this place 
Then they announced that HE was here
well the look on everyone’s face!

We whooped and cheered like crazy ladies 
as HE walked into the room 
HE was right here, right now 
not on a screen via zoom

We watched and listened carefully 
as he chatted about his life 
From the early dark days 
to finding happiness with his wife 

I wonder by now if you have guessed 
just who this HE could be 
Well…. In that room there was Mr Robbie Williams 
29 others and me
