"The Milkman of Human Kindness" as written by and Billy Bragg....
If you're lonely, I will call
If you're poorly, I will send poetry

I love you
I am the milkman of human kindness
I will leave an extra pint

If you're sleeping, I will wait
If your bed is wet, I will dry your tears

I love you
I am the milkman of human kindness
I will leave an extra pint

Hold my hand for me I'm waking up
Hold my hand for me I'm waking up
Hold my hand for me I'm making up
Won't you hold my hand - I'm making up

If you are falling, I'll put out my hands
If you feel bitter, I will understand

I love you
I am the milkman of human kindness
I will leave an extra pint

    In his ever so clever way ol' Bignose has turned common language into a beautiful lyric. Milk of human kindness is a phrase that indicates compassion. Billy Is talking here about being particularly kind to someone when they're having a hard time.
