Without You

Rating: 3.8
Without you every morning would feel like going back to work after a holiday,
Without you I couldn't stand the smell of the East Lancs Road,
Without you ghost ferries would cross the Mersey manned by skeleton crews,
Without you I'd probably feel happy and have more money and time and nothing to do with it,
Without you I'd have to leave my stillborn poems on other people's doorsteps, wrapped in brown paper,
Without you there'd never be sauce to put on sausage butties,
Without you plastic flowers in shop windows would just be plastic flowers in shop windows,
Without you I'd spend my summers picking morosley over the remains of train crashes,
Without you white birds would wrench themselves free from my paintings and fly off dripping blood into the night,
Without you green apples wouldn't taste greener,
Without you Mothers wouldn't let their children play out after tea,

Absolute pants! Without You...good grief. Without you... Without you my bicycle has just been struck by lightning. Without you I can hear fresh paint dry. Without you I have to flush the toilet. Without you the pixies are after the marmalade.

Agree it is absolute rubbish. Formula-written nonsense. You could compose additional lines yourself ad nauseam. 'Without you the moon would just be a yellow circle' or somesuch dross.
