Mrs Mouse meets Mr Alfie
100 long days I’ve been locked in this house
Just Her and my kids, said my Mrs Mouse
I know there’s some freedoms, I know there’s some slack
But truly and really I want my life back.
It started in winter then went on through spring
And now it’s still raining like any damned thing.
My kids have grown fatter with food all around
She’s tired sometimes and it goes on the ground.
She’s had the pool opened. I’ve been out to see
It’s all clean and lovely and really quite twee.
But rain it does come and thunder and all
So outside is not yet for having a ball.
Meanwhile I’ve been meeting with Mr Alfie
He’s snuck out of the car a few times to see me.
We meet in the garden and under the house
Where no one can see us, smiles fat Mrs Mouse.
I think he’s quite handsome, I think he’s quite wise,
I think I quite fancy his current guise.
He’s been in that car for nineteen long years
He’s seen a good lot, both laughter and tears.
I like his blue shoes and I like his nice scarf
And boy when he tries he does make me laugh.
He’s asked me to go out on a Saturday date
Just me and him, not kids or his mate.
I think he’s quite keen and I’m a little bit scared
It’s such a long time since I’ve been together in bed.
Let’s see where it leads us, let’s see where it goes
I’ll be ever so shy if he takes off my clothes.
So I’m leaving it there, no more for today
Just keep me in mind whenever you pray.
I’ll promise to tell you next time for sure
Whether he got his way or I showed him the door.
