For Mavis

 

I had a question though it escapes me

A bird swooped down to take it shining from my mouth

I was sitting down

In a restaurant of all places

Top drawer silver service Mavis stood the bill

I can picture the waiter’s face still

Ah that’s it I remember what I wanted to ask

 

How come you think I’ve got the money

Is it ‘cos I haven’t got the looks

In our house Mavis wears the trousers

And I wear my heart proud for Mavis

 

Well I’ve got a suggestion

While all you men are standing waiting open mouthed

So listen now

Mavis is the best thing and she would never question how you run your lives

I suggest that you take the same line

Of course it’s just a tip

She’s not bothered either way

 

How come you find it all so funny

Is the money not good enough

In our house Mavis wears the trousers

And I wear my heart proud for Mavis

 

Ooh yeah for Mavis

And I wouldn’t have it any other way

 

Oh come on do you really have to ask

 

 

How come you think I’ve got the money

Is it ‘cos I haven’t got the looks

In our house Mavis wears the trousers

And I wear my heart proud for Mavis

And I wear my heart proud for Mavis

And I wear my heart proud for Mavis
