"Deck Chair Collapsed" as written by and Paul Heaton....
This deck chair collapsed
this maybe or perhaps
the route that sadness maps
through those long and awkward gaps

those broken fairy wings
those tangled puppet strings
those roundabout soft swings
the heartache indecision brings

life my girl will take away that optimistic skip
stick it's big foot out and try deliberately to trip
substitute young hope with arthritic hip
take your saturdays and attach them to a drip

that banaster we slide
the wild horse we ride
that flows from side to side
the roughest smooth yet to decide

the cowardly the bold
the fireworks they hold
the overkill the undersold
already told you to unfold

life my girl will take away that optimistic skip
stick it's big foot out and try deliberately to trip
substitute young hope with arthritic hip
take your saturdays and attach them to a drip

they're fluent double dutch
they're feeling out of touch
that nonsense or nonsuch
not quite enough or just too much

life my girl will take away that optimistic skip
stick it's big foot out and try deliberately to trip
substitute young hope with arthritic hip
take your saturdays and attach them to a drip

this deck chair collapsed
