All dressed up nowhere to go.
Looking the part in expensive attire
Carefully selected to look the part
Fitting like a glove, feeling good.
Its day break, deep breath, I’m ready
It’s taken some internal psyching
Putting one foot in front of the other
Out of bed, not disturbing the loved one.
Shoes to fit, no glass slippers here
No magical carriage, no footmen
Just shanks’ pony for me
I’m ready, door opens, lets go.
Stepping out into the public light
Well, the low glow of the encroaching dawn
Something’s wrong, the elements have betrayed me
Rain, lovely to see, but not for me right now.
So I think I’ll wait, it’ll clear
Stand around in my finery
Looking like a shag on a rock I know
I begin to see the reality.
Plans can be abandoned, go back to Plan A
Swallow pride, put the ego aside
Go back to bed, snuggle in,
The loved one shifts slightly. Hello!
