A Happy Couple
©
Author: Dave Claridge
He's a fine example of the bourgeoisie
Watch his little finger when he drinks his tea
He like to dress smart casual and sip chablis
He'll be killed by pretence and insecurity

She's a fine example of the working class
Likes a drink or two she's a natural gas
Dodgy cash exchanged for a boarding pass
Don't trust anyone from the bottom of her glass

Let's toast the happy couple
in everything they do
One hung up on status and one strung up unscrewed
Let's toast the happy couple
And wish them both good luck
Let's watch the happy couple together come unstuck

He's a paid up member of the status quo
His self-important swagger with mortgages in tow
If you're not like him then you're a cut below
His life is built on quicksand and it's all for show

She's afraid of everyone that's not like her
She castigates the other with a sneering slur
Thinks her motives and her madness are the same elsewhere
Can't see beyond the nightmares waiting to recur

Let's toast the happy couple
as they sink or swim
He's got her for company and all she has is him
Let's toast the happy couple
in the lives that time forgot
Time to get on with our futures now and leave them both to rot
