The House

It stood bare and lonely feeling deserted,
Then came the woman from Bird Cage Walk,
David pull yourself together, she asserted.

It woke up to the sound of work and tools,
Then came the woman from Bird Cage Walk,
David you have made a start, she drools.

It was happy once again, life had returned,
Then came the woman from Bird Cage Walk,
David well done, my respect you’ve earned.

It was now becoming a proper home again,
Then came the woman from Bird Cage Walk,
David I’ve come to shelter from the rain.

It now listened out for that special knock,
Then came the woman from Bird Cage Walk,
David you excite me like an electric shock.

It closed its eyes, it had stopped hurting,
Then came the woman from Bird Cage Walk,
David I think it’s time we drew the curtain.
