(Another) Blue Monday

An a.m. pint with a short of hope,
A bottle of black milk for a blue Monday.
Along the bar like rotten bunting
Hang gin-powered hags with offspring hunting
Fags for them and dear old dad.
They all agree the council’s mad
For letting so many of the buggers in.

Kicking dogshit through the leaves,
Finding love between your knees,
Trying anything to not let it fall apart.
What’s the salve this crushed heart needs?
Bury’s finest, if you please!
Strike up bold boys and don’t let it fall apart.

Call in sick again on Tuesday
And buy some crying wine from the end of the road.
Watch a film with Eddie Marsan
And that lass from Clocking Off and Playing the Field.
From the sofa to the pub
To take the edge off, and then the blade,
Keep yourself safe from the day.

Broken promises like thieves,
Nicking quavers, leaving breves.
Trying everything to not let it fall apart.
What’s the salve this crushed heart needs?
Mr. Garvey, if you please!
Sing it loud and please don’t let it fall apart.

Take it easy flower – put yourself to bed before somebody gets hurt.
