TWENTY PLUS 5


- The Sequel to Twenty -
By Madpote and Psixpence

There's a toddler in the garden,
There's a baby in the pram,
Today I'm the baby sitter
Satisfied with what I am.
My blonde's just a tad heavier,
The cost of giving that new life
But anything looks fine
On my lovely loving wife.

As soon as we were married
We didn't waste much time
In trying for a baby
(All the practice was sublime!)
Within a year our son was born,
And then our little girl,
And everything was happy
In our lovely family world.

Life is so much different.
More with the kids and toys
Than in my best gear
And out with the boys.
I sit back in amazement.
This is just simply bliss.
I never ever thought
I'd get happiness like this.

My fella - he was such a lad
Till he met and married me,
Always on the pull
With each new bird he'd see;
So I wondered if he'd settle
With a home and kids and wife
But he's the ideal husband,
So content with family life

Money's a little tight
But I know it's all worth while
When I play with my son
Or see my Blondie smile.
I can't give them the earth.
I'm just a working man
But we work together
And do the best we can.

Nights out and foreign holidays
Are not on our agenda
These days we haven't got the cash
To afford a one night bender!
But who needs all that anyway
When we have each other,
And our darling little kids
Have a loving Dad and Mother.

My best gear's in the wardrobe,
Never to be thrown away
‘Cos that's the gear I wore
That very special day
I met that special girl
Who made and changed my life
When she gave me her love
And became my precious wife.

I hope we'll be together
Forever and a day.
And I'm so glad I caught his eye
That night he came my way,
He still calls me his ‘Blondie'
With that twinkle in his eye
And whatever life may throw at us
I know that we'll get by.
