For Tony


“I’ll have a house whisky” and “Give us a fag”

I can still hear your voice in my head

And I miss all your stories of past days of glory

And you making me laugh till I wept


I think that I see you sometimes in the street

But it’s someone who just looks like you

And it brings me to tears when I hear certain songs

That I’ll never again hear with you


I won’t mourn your decline with that Thunderbird wine

‘Cause it never went down the right way

But I’d keep you in fags and a bottomless glass

Just to see you again for one day


Love Janice
