2nd Song For The Love Of My Life


dearest, O my new, new love -
will you grant me but 2 deviations?
for I will love truly and give everything unto you;
in all ways I'll be the man you want me to be
but in two - and grant those my only perversions, let them be:
First - allow me to drive all my life;
never take the wheel from me...
you see, my dad never allowed me to drive
and he threw me in the back seat
and never even told me where he'd bring me
and he'd dump me
in my nana's or in the shopping center
sometime for a week or two
and when I said Could I drive?
He'd say: You? you scum!
You're only 22!

So now when we settle down and build our own nest
you must really let me drive
like hell
really let me be the driver
and let me drive
never you take the wheel
you can sit like a Queen in the passenger seat
and I'll drive you wherever you want to
but Oh - promise, promise, never take the wheel from me...

And the 2nd deviation, before I forget...
I do have the habit
of digging my nose
whenever I'm happy
and so when I'm at the wheel
you can bet your last dollar
I'll be digging my nose
(the 2 go together)
so you must promise
to let me be
and let me dig my nose as I drive
for nothing makes me happier
so never, never
O please
never ever rap on my knuckles
when I dig my nose
like my mum did with her steel ruler
whenever I put my fingers in my nose

O if you can promise me these 2
that you'll allow these 2 perversions
to be the normal rule in our love -
Oh, then I'll be the happiest man ever...
Now excuse me, while I dig my nose...

    If...
    A driving digger you are
    all the children you'll scar...

    but many will come to view
    the train wreck that is you! (Report) Reply

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —

For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
