Top Dollar.

Top Dollar/ cassettes/ 2022

I will dress in fresh clean

white tee shirt and scruffy jeans.

Scuffed-up monkey boots

don’t mean I can’t pop my collar.

.

Unbox socks of cotton.

No, I ain’t forgotten how

to tie my laces, I was shown.

Yeah, my hair needs cutting.

.

Wash my face this morning.

Pay the rent tomorrow.

Splash my favourite cologne

as if it cost top dollar.

.

Ride the train to Central.

Greet you at our coffee shop.

Carry your bags for you.

The bed is made, the cupboard stocked.

.

The rooms are clean and scented.

You don’t care much for such things.

But I will play guitar and sing

for you a song presented…
