Never Like This

Wear Wellington boots when you tread into water
But what do you do when she’s finally caught you
You can’t just take off or go underground
You just have to find yourself another way round

Been through this before, but never like this

Her mother is smiling across from the sofa
Dad’s watching the teli’ but taking no notice
Instead he just plays with some bright coloured blocks
Occasionally speaks of little girls’ frocks

Been through this before, but never like this

Beginning to wish that you’d never met
The girl with the far-away look in her eyes
But to your surprise, she pours you some tea
How many lumps, is it two, one or five?

You suddenly find yourself glad that you came
And your sure that the room doesn’t look quite the same
And Dad’s got you into his bright coloured blocks
Whilst mother still smiles in her little girl frock
And the girl with the far-away look in her eyes
Has now become very important in life

Been through this before, but never like this
