Guardian Special
Brandy in Pollock’s Toy Museum bag of presents
Viz enrazzlement
Hamworthy home
My first Hohner guitar (I always try to write one Xmas song upon it)
Last year I was a child (Reading all my old Select mags and doing press ups)

And now on Boxing day…
My best friend Edd and I, like kids on Poole Quay
The Antelope where his Dad stayed for his Plessey’s interview
And in the cold, we were called divs
The day after, I’m grumpy that I’ve missed…

Jason and the Argonauts on TV (I’m sorry company)
I’m 12 years old (encircling) and I am now trapped in a memory
And now in Swanage, I mostly think of her and ignore those who do care
I’m so grumpy…
At this point my Grandma has got two more months left

We always have toasted tea cakes in the Beaver Cafe
Post my mortgage forms to George Ide
The Mowlam…
And now on Dave TV, it’s the 10,000 Fingers of Dr. T.
Steam train heaves to the sea
I’d love to hear all about their first meeting after D Day
But I behave like a lovelorn fool

Shooting Stars
And I’m back in bedsit land for New Year
I’m feeling lonely
I love them so much (on the long trek from Waterloo, on the scruffy number 12 bus)
Grampa rode back from Weymouth to his Bourneville home, because she was all he wanted
I should know more of this
I should pull my unmatched socks up

Edd’s album and “Big Behind” song (His family all liked Stevie Wonder)
Remember grand folks and our Mums (His Hammond organ and Guy Fawkes’ Day bombs)
We made our Boxing Day plays (His Mum’s exciting Jamaican stuff)
BBC Micros and Maplin’s toys (This Xmas I’m trying out a beard)

On Boxing Day… Somewhere over the sea I love you
