o Pray be brave musketeer

o Sleepcatcher Way

o Later life…

o In afterglow 2

o Times Squared

o Springtime rush

o A welcome breeze

o Daniel’s Fire

o Back Peddling

o Our NHS

o Silver Jubilee 1977

o You’re still the one

o Heavens above

o Intimate eyes

o Don't ask me to write about butterflies

o Time and Temper

o A girl in a rush

o Why can't you believe?

o Oh, what the dark doth bring to light

o Born to be loved

o Virtual love

o I can't rightly say I love you

o Get a new dress

o Nurse Divine

o Love lingers long into the night

o Every woman in the room

o Catch the wind

o The rhythm of love

o Astonishing people

o I heard on the wind

o Lockdown Eucharist

o Lean me up against a wall

What I want, I gotta have.

Four side-by-side, stock quadrajet,

Goes nought to sixty, seven secs,

I had to have it, speed’s my fad,

An’ what I want, I gotta have.


Sweet sugartime, sidewalk on fire,

I looked, I winked, we shared a smile,

But then she stopped, come walkin’ back,

Cause what I want, I gotta have.


Battery flat, my watch has stopped,

Right outside a Rolex shop,

Checked my wedge, phoned the bank,

Cause want I want, I gotta have.


Blue suit, waistcoat, watch and chain,

Bespoke lining, gold la-mé

Bag it up, I’ll pay by cash,

Cause what I want, I gotta have.


Well, that’s about the size of it,

I have to have what makes me tick,

There’s no excuse, beyond the fact,

That what I want, I gotta have.
