Back to the drawing board


It all seemed so easy, A cinch

Of a plan, just get her to love

Me was all that I asked, but

The plan went awry, as plans

Often do, so it’s back to the

Drawing board, compass, and



Thought I might write a song

Dedicated to love, one bound to

Impress her but sadly no luck,

The song didn’t do it, failed to

Capture her mood, so it’s back

To the drawing board, compass

And rule.


A eureka moment, now this can’t

Go wrong, turn up in a limo’ at

Least a block long. But outside

Her house the whitewall tyres

Blew, so it’s back to the drawing

Board, compass and rule.


Oh heaven, oh heaven, oh please

Stop the rain, I looked out the

Window, it’s raining again. She

Said she can’t come ‘cause we’d

Both get wet through, so it’s back

To the drawing board, compass

And rule.


Tis with pride I announce, I

Succeeded my friends, with a new

Will of iron I took charge of events.

I traded my drawing board, compass

And rule, for a dozen red roses and a

Long 'I love you'.
