(19) Your leading man

Your Leading Man


The greenkeeper rolls himself a smoke
And watches her walk by
Tall and poised and beautiful
Let's out a sigh
Down in the allotments
They put their plants in pots
Go home to watch some Wimbledon
Doze off to snooker shots

And I'm flying
Through the starry night
High over distant lands
And I dream you're lying in my arms
And I'm your leading man
Your leading man
Darling, I'm your leading man

Muggy garden centres
Stuffy afternoons
Teapots, cup and saucers
Sugar, milk and spoons
Bottles go back on doorsteps
Tools go back in sheds
They clear away the dishes
Get ready for their beds

And I'm flying
Through the starry night
High over distant lands
And I dream you're lying in my arms
And I'm your leading man
Your leading man
Darling, I'm your leading man

Well the caretaker steals glances
As she waits outside the school
Tall and poised and beautiful
Elegant and cool

And now the kids are spilling out
Laughing and chattering
Home for tea and fame tv
And a quiet night in

And I'm flying
Through the starry night
High over distant lands
And I dream you're lying in my arms
And I'm your leading man
Your leading man
Darling, I'm your leading man
Your leading man
Darling, I'm your leading man
