That there them these those unfortunates Aim to grease we those unfortunates Thank you yes please those unfortunates We are Knock kneed Two speed Take heed We’ll say this only once These there them that those unfortunates Front foot straight bat those unfortunates Stop go come back those unfortunates We are Man made Sweat stained Outstayed Our warm welcome There that these them those unfortunates Crossed eyes count ten those unfortunates Uncross them then those unfortunates We are Well read Thick heads The dregs Of imitation Them these that there those unfortunates Play hard not fair those unfortunates He who wins dares those unfortunates We are Sly grins Odd pins This din And not much more
Raymond made just for himself A tiny perfect world But if things aren’t quite perfect It’s no good for Raymond’s nerves Raymond dresses smartly He’s not happy when he’s not His wardrobe’s full of pastel shirts And matching pastel socks All the while a thought keeps gnawing It’s all a little overwhelming (He’s ok though) Inside Raymond’s little house Clocks tick before they tock But if he hears one tocking first He has to make it stop All the while a thought keeps gnawing It’s all a little overwhelming (He’s ok though) Raymond has these routines To help him get along They help him to forget That everything is wrong
I was born a short haired boy My mother’s pride and joy And everywhere that mummy went She’d take me and all, ‘my boy Is such a perfect specimen With mummy’s eyes and chins And bless his little cottons With daddy’s short haired pins’ They took me up the high street All the grannies billed and cooed And hobbled all together To stroke my scritchy follicles ‘Oh couldn’t you just eat him up?’ They said and licked their lips I gurgled out in terror But did they take the hint? No. Mother was in tears When my cowlick first appeared The bristles became bushels Til they brushed down past my ears ‘My little boy’s a monster’ She shivered in dad’s arms He dragged me by the ankles… To the barbers. Now I look so neat and smart A little short haired work of art Now I look so smart and neat From my short-haired head to my shoe-shod feet We eat our crusts and leave the rest Sup our milk from short haired breasts To grow the short hairs on our chest…
I was lying in fields Of grass and clover You were sleeping next to me I watched a while as birds flew Over our heads You took me driving in your car Towards the sand dunes A million shells washed on the beach And under your feet On the beach near Blakeney And in the evenings when we watched The fire dancing All those unimportant things Made my heart ache On the beach near Blakeney Like bricks and water on your skin Do I need you? I do.
