I know the pubs,
they all know me.
I’m drawn in, I see who’s there.
I make my way up,
give her some hello chat.
Last night got in late, you tell me how
under the lights of the gambling club
in a street brawl
And in the morning I had some bad news.
“Good. What is it?”
“She’s coming to stay.
I couldn’t quite say no.”
