the windowed secretary..(a song)

window secretary
telephone ordeal
a letter about change
to all

a candlewick's moaning
about teeth cleaning
a battalion of ingrates
picking at your nerves

can we put a window in?
to let the prisoner see the gate

can we put a window in?
as the feedback would be great

a good day in the forest
a bad head on the bus
a rose coloured pheasant

a million stupid questions
plus a hundredweight of fuss
makes for diry tables
and no line.

ab 24/V/05

the tune's better than the words though!

What a great lyric. Mystical and heartwarming, sensuous but with a hard, determined edge that all but cries for help as you, the listener, is entreated to join in - to sing - to shout... truly lovely.

Hey - you have a blog then!!!! I expect there was mention of this but I am still backlogging.

How the devil are you?

Hi again.

Can't get that song out of my head.

I'm off to cook a risotto now and watch
