The Lyrics

well what can I say about this one... most of us know what it's like, pick up a bargain,,, only to find out how horrendous it is when you get home,,,, lol ;)
Well they seemed alright, if a little snug and tight,
Though they looked a little faded and meek,
I tried to pretend I was a size ten again,
But my body had other plans this week.
Well I fell in love with those pink hot-pants,
And they called to me "off the rail",
They were only 19.99 in M&S,
In the January Sale!

Well I figured they'd be ok for a night on the town,
With a snug little shirt and a sexy brown tan.
Boy was I proud to wear the clothes I did when I was young,
But maybe hot-pants weren't meant for a 40 year old gran!
Some blokes whistled and some blokes balked,
But I just wiggled and went on my way.
And when time ran out, thank God there was no one about,
As the seams at the rear gave way!

God the seems burst!
God I'd no pants on!
God my butts naked in Times Square!
What can I do?
I can run but I'd wobble,
I can walk and hobble,
Kill me now,
My life is over!
19.99 in the January Sale!

Well I brought many a smile and muffled sniggers,
By the time I got home and shut the door,
I dived under my bed and cursed M&S,
And left the house no more!
I ain't saying never January sale shop again,
But ignore a 50 buck deduction "off the rails",
Dignity I can never regain,
Thanks to January Sales.


Thanks to January Sales
