Song: Camilla - Poem by David SmithWhite

Be still my heart, be stiller,
for it's you I need, Camilla,
lest claw and feather fly like flustered dove.
I am no Hun, Atilla,
nor a six-hundred pound gorilla;
no elephant in the china-shop of love.

I am the hardest cheddar,
and you are the smoothest cream.
You are a warm mozzerella;
and I am your cheesy dream.

Come, oh come, Camilla!
Come and we'll wipe the slate clean.
Come, oh come, Camilla!
Cause you make my feelings so keen.

Tho' condemned from post to pillar
it's you I need, Camilla;
the comfort of the weathered boot or glove.
You're the new bread to the miller
with his secret spread – vanilla -
who kneads no dough as filler for your love.

Come, oh come, Camilla!
Come and we'll race the machine.
With an instinct honed to killer,
it's not nurture but nature and genes.

Come, oh come, Camilla!
We're the real melodrama onscreen.
Come, oh come, Camilla!
Come, and we'll steal every scene.

From my scotch retreat and villa
with my fast and fleet flotilla
I'll moor her golden vessel to the bluff.
For I know I can fulfill her
like a wine for blind distllers
I know that I can thrill her with my love.

Oh come my Cinderella,
so my princely eye might gleam.
You glow with the warming earth colours;
so the grey natural world is redeemed.

Though clumsy like Godzilla
in a perfumed wrap - chinchilla -
I am no perfect gigalo of fluff.
But I need you sweet Camilla,
every atom and each scintila;
in essence you're the stellar gift to love.

Come, oh come, Camilla!
Come and I'll make you my queen.
You are my loyal guerilla,
as I am your royal has-been.

Come, oh come, Camilla!
You jump start my heart like caffeine.
Come, oh come, Camilla!
You make me feel I'm nineteen!
