She spends the evenings on the phone,

He sits in the corner of The Rose and Crown.

She eats banana butties for breakfast,

he has black coffee and a JPS.

She can only sleep with the windows closed,

he can only sleep with them wide open.

The last time they went on a date

the number one song was Hard Day’s Night.

He wanted to watch The Pink Panther,

she fancied The Strangler.

To this day they’ve never seen either.

But something must have kept them together:

love, company, custom. The weather.
