Some people you meet in the course of the day
Bore you to tears but you can’t get away
I must let the dog out you say with regret
Or I’m on my way to the bookies to put on a bet
It’s in the first race and its near time for the off
What did you say you’ve got a bad cough
I must get back soon I’m expecting a call
You what ! your aunt Nelly’s just had a bad fall
O! I’m sorry you sympathise
As your complete indifference you try to disguise
O! I left the tap running when I was washing the pots
O ! no your Percy’s come out all over in spots
Is that your house that’s on fire you say with delight
And as she looks back you shoot off in the night
