I am rehearsing this with a new band and we'll be performing it at the Comedy (a pub near Leicester Square, central London) on 18 September 2013.

Just a Day with you

Written but never used for my former band.  Maybe I'll use it for the next one.


I ain't gonna be walking these eggshells no more.
When I say she's dynamite, that ain't metaphor.
She's on a hair trigger, always ready to go.
She ain't just a woman: she's a keg of nitro.


She wants an ideal home on an ideal hill
And it just ain't enough to pick up the bill.
She wants a housemaid, and butler; don't want a man.
She wants to go get her loving catch as catch can.


I ain't gonna be walking these eggshells no more.
When I say she's dynamite, that ain't metaphor
She's on a hair trigger, always ready to go.
She ain't just a woman: she's a keg of nitro.


I too coulda married Ann in the blue silk blouse
But it's too damn late to worry 'bout that right now
Cos she coulda married Mike with the high flying role
And not have to live in this godforsaken hole.


I ain't gonna be walking these eggshells no more.
When I say she's dynamite, that ain't metaphor
She's on a hair trigger, always ready to go
She ain't just a woman: she's a keg of nitro.


She has a list of things that she don't wanna hear
Tonight I'll say every damn one of 'em for fear
I might go to pieces if I don't let 'em out
Cause I too have a list that's as long as her own
And if she don't calm down, then I too might explode
All you husbands know just what I'm talking about. 3 comments


I ain't gonna be walking these eggshells no more.
She ain't the only one who'll go bang, that's for sure
Mine ain't a hair trigger, but she's pushed it so long
I ain't just a man: I'm an unexploded bomb.
