Not for love nor money



The first time
we set eyes on each other

you were all set to marry another

learner signs stuck to your back
durex wound in your hair
i felt it only fair to pull ya

we kissed
both pissed...the rest of your hens cheered

1o minutes later we'd disappeared

i woke you at...5 with a french letter plucked from your tresses
mentioned the do and wedding dresses
you sighed ...then cried
said the night had opened your eyes
that you now loved a new lover

i thought oh brother here we go again
pulled another nutter.
