A very important man about town
Mail under his arm
Whistling a happy Vera Lynn classic.
Wears Saville Row suits to visit the barber
Same short back and sides as his father
And his father’s father.
Believes deeply in his country
Always stands for the queen
Expects respect and censoring of the obscene.
An unimportant man in his home
It should be his castle but it’s more of a prison.
Two point four children who barely know him
And a gin-filled wife as cold as ice.
He craves real life to match his forgotten dreams
Now wouldn’t that be nice?
