Much More Fun

Here comes the bed
Back in Margate,
All two million pounds worth
Maybe even more today,
Yet poor Tracy
Still has a little moan,
She doesn't drink now
So the vodka bottle
And a few other things
Are no longer

But I still love the bed,
It makes me smile
And I've seen it
At different times,
In different places,
During different stages
Of my life;
It really hooked me
From the very start;
Much more fun
Than those bloody bricks!
