Elevenses

 

Mi grandmother liked her coffee a lot

Everyday 11am on the dot

And everything stopped

When the coffee pot came round

 

No matter what cha doin

In the middle of a job

Everyting stopped for the coffee pot

You could smell it coming

And you could hear the sound

 

She said

 

Elevenses stop what cha doin

Time to take a break now it’s yer grandmother brewin

Elevenses

And the pot went round  

 

No matter what cha doin

In the middle of a job

Everyting stops for the coffee pot

You could smell it coming

And you could hear her shout

 

Elevenses stop what cha doin

You better take a break now or it will be 

Your ruin 

Elevenses

And the pot went round 

 

Now im a little older 

And my gran is in her lot

But just before she died she gave me her old 

Coffee pot

And now I got the ritual

She instilled in me

 

No matter what cha doin

In the middle of a job

Everyting stops for the coffee pot

I can still smell it coming

And I can hear her shout

 

Elevenses stop what cha doin

Time to take a break now it’s yer grandmother brewin

Elevenses

And the pot went round

 

Elevenses stop what cha doin

You better take a break now or it will be 

Your ruin 

Elevenses

And the pot went round

Township

 

This is mi township

This is where I was born

This is mi township

Where I went to school

And in mi township 

Me and mi brothers grew up

I played piano guitar and the euphonium

 

This is mi township 

Where I got mi first car

This is mi township

It was a Vauxhall Viva 

This is mi township 

Where I had mi first kiss

With a girl name of Smith it was totally bliss

 

And in mi township

Real Good friends and family

Now some are gone but they left memories

And tears that never dry e y

 

This is mi township

Where I met mi first love

This is mi township

Gutted when we broke up

This is mi township 

Where I joined mi first band 

Played the keyboards and sang 

Thought we’d get in the charts

Ha ha 

 

This is mi township 

Went in pubs underage

Let’s put it this way

I didn’t drink lemonade

This is mi township

I was king of my patch

Smoked those long cigarettes 

And dealt only in cash 

 

Now in mi township

I’m not king anymore

And all the streets look more run down than before

But mi mama still lives there

 

This is mi township

Where I got mi first job 

But I was grounded

When I wanted to fly 

And So I left town

The guitar on mi back 

A few quid in mi pocket I never looked back 

 

This is mi township
